He's Here!

Well we didn't get a chance to get in a maternity photo session for Katie unfortunately, but little Gavin made his way into this big world last week. What a great time I had meeting this handsome little fella and capturing him in all his tiny perfectness.

Thanks so much Katie and Donnie for letting me come share this special time with you! I can't wait to see little Gavin again!

By the way--Katie gave me some homemade chocolate chip cookies for the drive home and I can't even express to you how delicious they were! Seriously I have never before eaten such soft, tasty, YUMMY chocolate chip cookies! Katie--you better start selling these! You could make a mint (probably off of me alone!)!! Thanks again!!!

In newborn sessions I like to do a bit of formal posed shots as well as some informal "lifestyle" images to capture the family around the home at the this wonderful stage in their lives. Below are some of the more formal shots.

Little Gavin wanted to be a little more modest--I couldn't resist capturing this little pouty face!
Look at ALL that hair!! How adorable!
Katie sure makes a great mom--her love for Gavin just radiates from her.

A special rocking chair for mom and baby--Donnie refinished it just for the nursery.

Doesn't Katie look AMAZING just 7 days out from delivery!? I can only hope to be as blessed some day!
Check out the coordinating shirt and onesy (how does one spell that??)...ADORABLE!

PS: Donnie serves in the Navy and is currently stationed in WA. What a blessing for him to be able to be present at the birth of his little boy. A big thank you to all of the service men and women who fight daily to protect the freedoms we have in America--it is because you and the others before you were willing to make such great sacrifices that America is as great as it is. Thank you!
