I walk in the door and am met by the most adorable little newborn AND a plate full of freshly home baked cookies! Now, people, does it get any better than that? I will proudly state that I resisted my impulses and did not dive headfirst into the cookies and instead focused on what I came there to do! Those of you who know me (and my sweet tooth) are surely quite impressed with my restraint!
I photographed this lovely couple when they were pregnant with Avery and got some super fun images of Kevin running "airplane" circles and jumping around Carly because he couldn't subdue his joy over his child's upcoming birth. It was such a sweet, fun and tender moment and those photos are so full of life and evoke all those wonderful emotions.
Avery was the sweetest little thing and, despite being super tired, was not remotely interested in going to sleep insomuch that she might miss something VERY IMPORTANT! :) Finally, at the tail end, she fell into a nice deep sleep. We got some truly amazing photos of this expressive little gal, such a kick!
Near the middle I have some images of Kevin holding Avery in his "daddy tree branch" pose. Whenever Avery started fussing he would hold her like this and she would immediately settle down. So cute!
And, in case you were wondering, I grabbed three cookies on the way out (naturally!) with the intention of indulging in one and bringing the other two to my kids to enjoy....All three were in my belly before I had even gotten back onto the freeway... Bad mommy! :)
Carly & Kevin, enjoy your photos and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
