Baby Madeline Ann | Newborn Session

On June 10th baby Maddy came into the world! Even after giving Jen specific instructions that she WAS NOT allowed to have Madeline while I was gone, (attending a friend’s wedding) she came anyway. On my ride to Charlottesville my phone rang at it was Jen. I thought that it could only mean one thing, so I picked it up and said, “You’re having a BABY!!!!!” Then I hear Jen’s sister, Stacy, say, “Um, it’s Stacy, but yes, she is!” Stacy and I have a pretty “sarcastic” relationship, so the fact that we were having such a serious conversation is pretty comical. She asked if I wanted to talk to her. I was shocked, Do people mind talking while they’re in labor?┬áJen took the phone, and as soon as I heard her voice my eyes filled with tears. “You’re going to be a mommy…I’m so proud of you.” A few short hours after we hung up Madeline Ann was born. I received a text and a photo, and I smiled the biggest smile. As soon as I got home I made a point to get out to Warrenton and hold Maddy. She was more incredible then I imagined. Every time I hold her I honestly don’t want to let her go. She’s a great baby…however modeling proved not to be her favorite thing in the world. However, we had a good chat and decided that at 3 months she’s going to cooperate. Yes, Maddy and I had a conversation. ;) Here’s a few of my favorites!

I love!

Though those sleeping photos are sweet, this is how Maddy really felt…

Finally with mommy…

Jen and Maddy, I love you both so, so much! Maddy, you truly are a blessing! xoxo

Juliana | Newborn Session

The last time I saw Lindsay and Peter was at their maternity session. At that point they didn’t know the sex of their baby, and they weren’t expecting the baby until at least April 1st! Well, Miss Juliana had other plans. Just a few short weeks later Lindsay and Peter became parents to a beautiful little girl! In fact, when they had Juliana was right around the time I blogged their session. When I didn’t hear back from them I was really nervous. “Maybe they didn’t like their photos?” I thought. Luckily, I received a sweet e-mail from Lindsay a few weeks later letting me know that they loved their photos and that Juliana’s birthday was quite a surprise. She was two weeks early! But, she is quite a little doll! :) Juliana had a hard time, but I reminded Lindsay to relax and be patient. I ended up getting more photos than I expected, and when their session came to a close I ended up holding Juliana for about 30 minutes while small talking with Lindsay. What can I say? I LOVE my clients!

Oliver, Roman, and Jacob | Newborn Session

So, you may remember my “pregnant sisters session.” Their babies are here! Denielle had beautiful twin boys, Oliver and Roman. And Jordan, who was leaving the sex of her baby a surprise, had a handsome boy as well, Jacob! THREE NEWBORNS! It was incredible. This family seriously rocks my world. I laugh constantly! What I love is their admiration for each other. When I showed up Jordan was holding Oliver and Denielle was holding Jacob. It was adorable just seeing how much they swooned over their nephews.

On this rainy day…enjoy these babes, because I can’t get enough! Picking favorites was ridiculously hard…
