I may not have felt like it in the moment, but I'm so thankful now that I grabbed these sweet and simple pictures of my gorgeous Charlotte Evangeline.
It is such a beautiful things when a new baby enters the world. I can't wrap my mind around just how marvelous of a miracle life is. How do those little babies fit into us? How do they come out knowing how to sleep and eat and breath. I'm always blown away at how perfect these little humans are, straight from the get-go. Being pretty pregnant myself at the moment, I'm just amazed that one of these little guys (in my case a girl) is inside of me RIGHT NOW.
I Met Carla and Oliver back when she was pregnant with her little boy and we took some family and maternity pictures (You can see those here). I love that I have been able to document their family as it can grown. Also Newborns are so magical. I can't believe how perfect they are right from the get-go. God is the best.
I had so much fun shooting this lovely preggo and her toddler Fiona! Judah and Fiona are only a day apart in age also, so thats fun. Not only is Melissa a great friend and awesome pastor, she is also a phenomenal harpist.... as in she's-literally-played-for-royalty-in-England good.
She was also so patient while I practiced indoor and low light shooting - something I am still very new at, but so far love!
