Elle arrived at the beginning of December, just in time to celebrate Christmas! And what a cute little Santa baby she is!
For a while, this has been my FAVORITE way to photograph newborns! Curled up in Daddy's hands... i just melt! It's funny because most of the time they end up falling asleep while i am doing this shot! If you are doing a newborn session with me, this is one of the shots that i try to always get... they just look so tiny in Daddy's big hands
And here's handsome big brother Joey! He loved running around my backyard, so that's where we captured most of his images. Just like a little boy, he found all kinds of rocks, sticks, and anything gritty to play with... "snips and snails, and puppy dog tails, that's what little boys are made of" as the rhyme goes :)
And I think Elle fits the rest of the rhyme perfectly! "sugar and spice, and everything nice, that's what little girls are made of"
I am always amazed at the gorgeous mommas that i photograph that don't even look like they just gave birth! Erin was no exception... you look amazing! (oh, and yes, we share the same name... aaaand Elle and I have the same middle name! How's that for coincidence :)
Daddy and his girl...
And one more of Joey.. with his little treasures "rocks" in hand :)
