It's always amazing to see friends you've known for forever become parents. Brittany and I have known each other since we were seven years old and little Brownie Girl Scouts! She met the love of her life just after Andy and I got married in 2007
So far, I have yet to have a newborn sleep for even half of a photography session with me. Baby Raymond slept the whole time! And his mama and I are quite thankful for that because we had all sorts of fun poses and props to use! Hope you enjoy scrolling through these sweet favorites of mine of this most adorable baby boy!
Years and years ago, like 12 years ago, this loud and energetic and FUN girl was in a dance class I assisted in. Fast forward a few years and I come to find out she actually went to the church and was friends with my hubby and my new found group of friends. We were even in our friends wedding in the fall of 2012 together! And fast foward another couple years and here were are on a gorgeous summer day photographing her new family of 3! It's amazing what God does in our lives, the gifts he gives from friends to family. Hope you enjoy these photos of little Remi and her loving parents, Gillian and Drew. And thanks Auntie Yoyo for assisting us that day, I am ever so thankful! We started with my version of baby photos, outside with blankets
Oh this sweet baby girl! Born just before Christmas, her mama and I planned this little mini shoot and got together right in their backyard (gotta love So Cal in December). She wore homemade knitted beanies and booties and just kept flashing us those beautiful eyes of hers! Enjoy these favorites of mine of sweet little Violet at 2 weeks old
Miss Amelia made her debut a few weeks early, gracing us with her presence on June 8, just weeks after her baby shower. Rachel and I wasted no time in getting together for photos exactly on her one week birthday. The little princess did not want to show us her skin but I did manage to snap my favorite photo before we bundled her back up! She just loved being close to her mama
See a couple of Parker's photos at 2 days old here. I cannot describe how much love I have for this growing group of friends I have been blessed with. Not only do Andy and I have some wonderful friends, but their children are just the sweetest and we love each and every one of them. Our newest friend, Parker, is now almost 2 months old but it felt like it was just last night that we were at the hospital awaiting his arrival. So without any further ado let me introduce to you the newest member of the Ryan clan by giving you a glimpse into Parker's 2 week old photos as well as his announcement that Kyrene and I collaborated on! Even big brother Hudson joined us for some photos outside—he's already such a great big brother—always kissing and tickling his baby brother. Parker's Birth Announcement I loved the simplicity of his announcements and how the type came out along with the lovely linen texture of the card. And it makes a lovely addition to our fridge! :) P.S. The texture applied to the photos in his announcement is actually the same one we used on
