Since I am playing catch up on blogging I thought it would be fitting to post this gorgeous in-home newborn session because last night I photographed this family again for Dylan’s first birthday! Yes! This little lady is one already!
Last night Carly and I kept talking about how it all just goes too fast. If you are a parent, especially if you are expecting or just had a baby, don’t blink! It goes way too fast. Somehow my oldest is about to turn 7 and I’m a little in shock.
Anyway, I first met Carly way back in 2016 at a bridal show at the Barns at Chip Ridge and shortly after that we did their engagement session. They got married in 2017 and we’ve just stayed in touch over the years. Then last year when Carly told me they were expecting I was just about over the moon! We had such a great time at their maternity session just a few short weeks before Carly’s due date!
Last year I got the text that little Miss Dylan had decided to show up 6 days early! She was ready for her debut as the star of this family! And my goodness, she was one tiny little sweetie!We just spent the afternoon together in their beautiful home and I just photographed these three (+ the pup) relaxing, snuggling, diaper changing, and nursing—their new normal. It was perfect and I hope that anytime they see these images it takes them right back to those early weeks and months of their sweet girl joining their family.
