Welcoming Miss Grace | Wichita Newborn Photographer

Grace01

If you want to talk miracles, you are looking one in the face in that darling newborn right there. This little girl has come a long, long way. She was born at 23 weeks, was only 1lb 6oz and 12 inches long, and after 121 days in the NICU, Grace was right where she belonged: home for Christmas. Within seconds of being there, it was obvious she was born into the perfect family for her. There was patient moving of oxygen and other important supplies, and through it all, she snuggled right in, taking in the world around her. This was also not Daniel and Sarah’s first time through the NICU life, their twins were also preemies, and I am amazed at how gracefully they have handled the pressure they were put under. Oh, sweet, amazing, Grace: welcome to the world, welcome home, welcome to a family that loves you more than you shall ever know.

Welcoming Mister Atticus {Lakewood, CO Birth Photographer}

As Atticus rounds on his six month birthday, I figured it was probably time to actually blog his birth. This whole experience was amazing: watching a team who knew exactly what to do, because they’ve done it four times before. Dave was a solid pillar of support, and was always one step ahead with the next thing. By the time we were all at the birth center, Liz was already in transition, and sweet little boy was on his way.

What felt like both forever and a short time later, and a whole lot of work on this amazing mama’s part, sweet Atticus came into the world, tiny, calm, and wide-eyed.

Sweet baby girl: the one, very obvious, thing I know is: you are well and truly loved. I am endlessly grateful that families allow me into their homes to photograph this sweet time in their lives, because there is nothing else like it.

Dear Miss Emma, You darling little lady… you made my job so easy! You curled up, sleepy as could be wherever you were set, whatever you were (or weren’t) wearing and whomever was holding you. You are truly the sweetest a teeny newborn could be. Your big sister was so confident and steady with you! Your big brother was curious and excited. You make the most darling trio of siblings. And your mama? Oh how she loves all three of you! You are one loved little baby.

When I tell you that these are some of my favorite people ever, it is all truth. Mark is one of my husband’s oldest friends, was in our wedding, and loves our girls like family. In fact, he is “Uncle” Mark in our family. When Aunt Erika joined the family, we were not only thrilled that Mark found someone that he adores, but, yes, selfishly, we were thrilled that we adore her, too. And now, sweet Ellie has joined the crew. Unfortunately, we are separated by half a country most of the year, so when one of our favorite families came back for a visit, we absolutely had to grab our own bit of the golden hour and take a few photos. They bring joy to each and every one of their interactions, and it’s one of the many reasons I love them.
