Isn’t this little one a handsome boy? Cade decided to spend his last hour awake and therefore, gave me the chance to capture his eyes wide open. Too fun!
Baby yawns are so cute.
It was so nice to meet you F family!
Welcome! My name is Doni and you have now found yourself in my little part of the blog world. This blog serves multiple purposes. I am first and foremost, proud mama to Tanner, Ty, Tori and Troy. They are priority number one and many of my blog posts are devoted to them – “Mama’s Diaries”. In addition to keeping my plate full with being a SAHM and homeschooling, I am also a photographer. I decided not to separate my personal and business blog so mixed into my personal blog posts are also client sneak peeks for Live Loved Photography. Please visit www.livelovedphotography.com if you would like to see my portfolio. Thanks for visiting!
My newphew is so so so so so stinkin’ adorable! He has his auntie wrapped already. It was so fun putting the above shot together as it has elements contributed by several family members. The bear rug is Sweetie’s, the log bed was made by his Uncle Daniel, the Red Ryder BB Gun is Tanner’s, the animal mounts were taken from his nursery where they hang above his crib and Papa found me that limb. :) Takes a village sometimes.
Is my brother Dusty one proud Papa or what?
Was that enough sharing for ya? I couldn’t stop myself. I get so excited to shoot for family and I was actually nervous that my nephew would give me trouble. He likes to be cuddled at all times and thinks about food ALL THE TIME. Wasn’t sure if he was going to let me put him down long enough to do his pictures but he had pity on his Aunt and slept sweetly. He is the chattiest newborn ever. Talks, talks, talks. I love it.
I have a special project I am working on with him this month. You’ll have to keep tuned in to see. I can’t wait!!!!
He is here! My baby brother has a baby! Remy arrived at about 2:00 AM this morning and these pictures were taken within about an hour of his birth. He weighed 8 pounds 12 ounces and was 20 inches long. Perfect everything. Auntie is IN LOVE.
Smiling at his Sweetie already. He knows a good thing when he sees her!
I never like to say anything about my siblings birth stories on my blog – that is THEIR story to tell but I will say that all went well and both mama and baby are doing great.
I really can’t tell his hair color yet. It hadn’t been washed so tough to say. My suspicion is it will end up looking on the blonde side but jury is out on that. He inherited his mama’s nose (or quite possibly some of Sweetie’s thrown in too). It is a perfect little nose if I do say so.
And of course, you will be seeing all kinds of newborn goodness soon! Can’t wait to get my hands on my newest nephew! I also love it that when I am working, I can boot parents to the couch and get baby to MYSELF for 4 hours. I need me some Aunt bonding time in a serious way.
His skin is a perfect pink. In some of these shots it looks purple but that is due to mixed hospital lighting in the middle of the night. I opted not to color balance because too many people will be anxiously waiting on these pictures this morning. So trust me on this – he is not really purple. :)
I love you Dustin and Kristina – thank you for making me an Aunt again!!!!!
Weighing in at 10.6 (I think), Liam came in more than half a pound shy of his 11 pound older brother Isaac. Liam and Isaac – best newborn snugglers EVER. Holding a 10+ pound newborn is the absolute best. If you ever have the opportunity, you must find one to snuggle. They just melt into you all warm and cozy, fitting and conforming perfectly. Honestly, there is just nothing better. Liam was awesome for his shoot and gave me cuddles to boot. Love this boy.
Older brother Issac is so handsome and precious too. Liam looks a whole lot like Isaac as a newborn too.
I have had the privilege of knowing this family for over 20 years. I told C just last week that I loved watching how D loved and nurtured his family and it just made me so happy to see her happy and loved. In my line of work, I have this window into families where I get to see how people respond to high stress situations (and portrait sessions with toddlers can truly qualify – trust me). Once in awhile, I will have a real stand out Dad who is just very obviously in love with his wife and children. As a woman, I love to see Dad’s dote on mom, chase toddlers, hold conversations with me, and never break a sweat. D – I am so happy C found you. (And you are pretty blessed too with a sweet wife and two great kids!)
C bought these fall overalls for the shoot and I just happened to have a pumpkin hat that matched exceptionally well. Love it when a plan comes together.
Don’t you want to kiss those cheeks?
