I have known Lindsey since she was born and when invited to a baby shower recently in honor of the birth of her first baby, I could think of nothing more fitting than to gift her with a Baby’s First Year package. I had just gotten home from shooting her sister, Kelsey’s wedding and the phone rang. Lindsey and Stephen were at the hospital. I arrived this morning. It is such a joy and honor to document this very special time. I only share my favorites. Congratulations to new parents, Lindsey and Stephen and Welcome Ellie!  xxoo

PLEASE DO NOT TAKE SCREEN SHOTS OF PICTURES.  I AM HAPPY TO SHARE WATERMARKED IMAGES, BUT I AM NOT HAPPY TO SHARE SCREEN SHOTS THAT DISTORT MY BEAUTIFUL IMAGES.  THANK YOU!

I arrive. Today, the nurses were a bit curious.

Kelsey stopped by the hospital in hopes that Lindsey might deliver before she and Craig leave for their honeymoon. I wonder if Ellie will cry like this?

Nope! This is the way Ellie cries!

The expectant parents. So cute! Ah, life will never be the same for these two. How exciting!

DSC_3926-Edit

Family surrounds these two with love and support.

Soon to be a new mama. Oh my! I love this shot of Lindsey.

Waiting…

One last selfie before Ellie arrives.

These two are going to be wonderful parents!

The happy soon to be first time grandparents, Stephen’s parents.

Today is the day!

I think Stephen was getting a bit impatient.

This was the view from their hospital room. It was a beautiful Sunday on the day Ellie was born.

Soon to be first time Grandmothers, Mother-in-law and Mother taking care of Lindsey during labor. These two were so sweet and so much fun!

DSC_6154

These two were so excited!  You can feel the LOVE.

Seeing the Ellie’s head for the first time was pure joy.

These two were Coaching Lindsey throughout the labor process…

I don’t think I have ever seen Leslie so excited.

DSC_6176

With every birth there is always a bit of worry. Everything went perfectly, but I know two Grandmothers that were very happy and thankful when Ellie arrived.

Just after delivery, Lindsey got to meet her sweet little Ellie.

DSC_6222

…and Leslie got to meet her sweet little Ellie, too!

DSC_6232

A picture says a thousand words…

DSC_6239

That special relationship between a father and daughter begins today. …as well as,  that special relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter. I can only imagine the fun Ellie will have!

DSC_6233

I don’t think Leslie took her eyes off of Ellie for a second after her arrival. So sweet!

DSC_6264-Edit

Just after birth. I love her already!

DSC_6278

Probably on of my favorite shots of a birth session. For some reason, I always get the funniest faces.  Ellie did not disappoint. LOL. What they heck? Just born. Put me on a scale and then document it? Absolutely LOVE her expression.

DSC_6291

Tamie, Ellie’s paternal grandmother is just as sweet as can be. She was so excited to meet her granddaughter.

DSC_6297-Edit

Proud Daddy! Congratulations Stephen!

DSC_6303

A close look after the general assessment. I’d say, she already LOVES her sweet little Ellie.

DSC_6315-Edit

A family of three! How sweet is this?????

DSC_6336

A First Kiss

Technology has certainly changed the way we celebrate with family that can’t be present during those special once in a life time moments. Kelsey joins in the welcoming of Ellie via FaceTime.

DSC_6371-Edit-Edit

Happy Lindsey! Feeling blessed, I am sure.

DSC_6234

I could do an entire series on the expressions of this new Grandmother. Let the fun begin! xxoo

 

The day after.  Always something I try to do after a birth session.  Their new reality is settling in and everyone is becoming more acclimated to each other.

Ellie chills in the hospital bassinet…

Grandparents. Nothing is sweeter.

Ellie is checking out her Granddad while he checks her out, too.

DSC_6463-Edit

Day 2. I think Ellie has her parents wrapped, what do you think? I love her sweet little lips.

DSC_6460

Feedings. Diapering. Napping. The new norm for this new family of 3!!!!

DSC_6453

Did I mention napping?

DSC_6450-Edit

Even more napping…

DSC_6423-Edit

A personal favorite.

DSC_6399

There is something quite cute about a crying baby…unless it is your crying baby, of course.

DSC_6420-Edit-Edit

Another sweet kiss…

This happy family heads home tomorrow.  So happy to have had the opportunity to document this very special time in their lives.  I will see Ellie again at six months.  Can’t wait to see how she grows and changes.   What a blessing.  xxoo
