Little Miss Willow was such a happy baby! A little unsure of us, maybe, but weepy she was not!
Willow’s mommy is a friend of mine (Kristy’s AND Jason’s) from high school! We have had the pleasure of photographing Willow’s parents’ Engagement Session and Wedding as well as many other family events! One such family event was the birth of Willow’s cousin Charlie a few years ago where we took some photos of baby Charlie in this epic wooden bowl from their grandmom’s house that we just had to incorporate again with this session!
Love her face in that last one! The blanket she is laying on is actually her daddy’s from when he was a baby!
The gown below is a family heirloom and the backdrop was a special wall-hanging mom just had lying around 😉
The baby whisperer working her posing magic…..
The blanket Willow is sleeping on in this photo has such an adorable story. Willow’s mommy has an honorary aunt (family friend) who has always made her custom PJ’s for holidays and unbeknownst to momma, this aunt has been saving scraps of fabric from these projects over the YEARS she’s been making them with the intention to “one day” make a baby blanket out of them! HOW CUTE!!! We were so excited to get some adorable photos of baby Willow blissfully slumbering on possibly the warmest (heart-felt) blanket ever crafted! 😉
So, a few days later, I went back alone (well…. “alone” meaning without the baby whisperer, but with all 3 of my kids) to snag some shots of the whole family at a day/time when Dad was home from work to hop in!
Daphne the dog LOVED my son, Korben! Perhaps a little too much! 🙂 The feeling was mutual!
I’m so glad we got to capture some of these with the whole family!
