While most families were sleeping in after the exciting events of Christmas Day, Miss Willa decided to surprise her expecting parents by making her grand entrance in the wee morning hours of December 26th. Sporting a headful of hair (which I am kind of jealous of!) and a healthy set of lungs I think I can say without a doubt she has turned her family’s life upside down in the most amazing way. Being a part of the joy and excitement with these first time parents was as much of a blessing as being with them on their wedding day last year. The opportunity to capture a family in their own home, just as they are is a beautiful gift. While my heart lies with a more lifestyle approach with newborns I always like to mix it up a bit with a few stylized portraits as well. This time I couldn’t say no to a sweet handmade tutu as well as capturing Willa in the same vintage chair we used in her Momma’s bridal portraits. Welcome to the world Willa!
