This is one of my favorite parts of this job. I met Meredith when I shot her Storybook bridal session last year. She was one of those people who I instantly liked. Then, my husband and I shot her and Charles’ Storybook wedding day, when I was able to meet the rest of the family and also get a feel for how loving she & Charles are towards each other. Now they’re expecting their first child and I’m lucky enough to watch their family grow right in front of my lens. I couldn’t be more excited for them, they’re going to make excellent parents!
Oh Little Garrett! The day I showed up in Stillwater for Garrett’s newborn portraits, he was feeling a lot like this:Now, he didn’t keep this up the whole time. He was satisfied if both mom and dad exerted all their efforts into comforting him, which looked a little like this:So after I had exhausted all my ideas for newborn poses in mom & dad’s arms……we just waited for him to wear out. And eventually he did! For a little while, anyway. Garrett is officially THE cutest turtle I have ever seen. Garrett also happens to be hands-down the most adorable volunteer fire fighter that I’ve ever seen. What a cutie patootie!
