I'll be honest... newborns make you work during photo sessions. Everyone goes all lovey-dovey when they see an angelic picture of a brand new baby all snuggled with its hands tucked neatly under its chin and a sweet flower circling its tiny crown like a halo... But, like most things in this world, appearances can be deceiving. I say all this to let you know that Elle was the exception! The peaceful serenity that her photos give is in direct proportion with her personality. She is an easy-going baby and made my job this past weekend incredibly easy. Thank you Elle! It didn't hurt that mom was super fun to hang out with while dad was the ideal "helper"... not to mention the fact that all you had to say to "big" sister was popsicle and everything in the world became automatically simple. ;)
Kimberly, Mike, Ava, and Barkley... you guys hit the baby jackpot! Congrats on the new arrival. Anytime you need an extra pair of hands to snuggle little Elle, you know how to reach me!
Yes, I know this picture doesn't show Elle exactly as I described her, but give her a break... It was time to eat. ;)
They're SUCH a precious family!
Mike will certainly have his hands full with so many beautiful ladies in his life!
Sometimes it's the unplanned moments that are the most precious behind the lens.
Big sister is ADORable!
Say "popsicle!" ;)
Meet beautiful Elle!
The love is contageious!
Did I mention how much I ADORE this baby?!!!
How can this NOT give you baby fever?!
I LOVE the squished lip!
Elle, even though you are a dream baby, I want to make sure you know how lucky you are to have such amazingly awesome parents. Don't spoil them too much and remember that you can get whatever you want out of big sis if you have a popsicle handy! ;) I can't WAIT to watch you grow into a beautiful young lady... just take your time and don't grow up too fast!
