Watching families grow is one of the greatest joys as a photographer. I get to know so many couples from the beginning during pregnancy, and then follow along with them in their journey as their family transforms over the years. It’s hard to see change happening in the middle of it, but when you see it from my vantage point – one beautiful milestone after another – it’s truly amazing to see their story develop. Newborn babies are packed with personality just waiting to unfold, and we can’t wait to find out!

After that first year, life happens oh, so fast in the most wonderful way possible. The first steps, a new sibling, preschool days, kindergarten…and more! It melts my heart to see the wonderful people they are growing into.

I first met this family when their firstborn, Teddy, was a few days old. I was thrilled when they called to tell me that Teddy was going to be a big brother! I loved getting to see them again. Teddy has gotten so big and has the most charming personality, so I really enjoyed hanging out with my little buddy. I also had the chance to catch up with Mom and Dad and see how they’re transition is going with two adorable boys at home. They’re doing great, and their joy is unmistakable in these photos. 

I also got lots of sweet snuggles from baby Wyatt. I soaked them all in because I know the next time I see him, he’ll be fulfilling his “bouncing baby boy” role. We took time to capture every precious detail and preserve them in beautiful images! Wyatt’s nursery is woodland themed with deep greens, cream, and brown, so I chose his props and fabrics to coordinate with the beautiful nursery his mom created. I love how these classic photos came out.

Welcome home, baby Wyatt! You are so very loved.
