The new man in our lives – Nashville Newborn Photography

Happy New Year everyone!!

We were graced with the greatest gift on Earth on Dec. 17, 2014. I had a feeling it was going to be a boy, but when I heard “It’s a boy!” for real when he arrived, I was utterly amazed. We could not be any luckier or any more blessed. We will now have the pleasure of raising a girl and a boy. Ada will have a little brother (hopefully bigger than her someday) who can watch after her and always protect her and his family. He’ll have a big (little) sister, who shows him the ropes and loves him unconditionally. She’s pretty much obsessed with her little brother already… as are we!

I wanted to share some of his newborn photos and other photos from his first month of life. I can’t believe he is a month old. It has been a whirlwind and a lot of it is a blur. That’s why I have been picking up my camera almost every day. I’m capturing him in his real environment. When I see good light, I jump at the opportunity to create beautiful memories of this fleeting time. Then it’s back to breastfeeding, burping, cooking, cleaning, laundry, emails, cuddling, potty training, and the list goes on and on. Sending out birth announcements is still on my to-do list! 🙂

Finn, you fill our hearts with even more love and joy than we ever could imagine.

My ‘newborn’ session with him.  I was sore and it was hard for me to interrupt my little guy’s sleep and peacefulness to pose him. I got a few good ones, though. 😉
