cutie cutie ruby!

and she really IS a cutie!  and you know what else is so cute???  the way that this new daddy looks at his wife, who just birthed their first child.  i can just feel his love and admiration for her!  can’t you?!

i wish i could tell you more about the birth, but alas, i MISSED it!!!  yes, it’s true… another missed birth!  i arrived within 30 minutes of being called, but this little girlie wanted to be in her mamma’s arms pronto, so i got there minutes after she came.  the induction went faster than anyone could have possibly imagined!  even the doctor missed it!

when i did arrive, it was a joyous scene… hands held, hugs given, kisses received, with smiles and laughter filling the room!

thanks david fam, for allowing me to share these images, and for inviting me in to document and be a part of the night you became a family of 3!  i LOVED every moment of it!  congrats to you all!

willa plum, a new soul

chi-lin and i met almost 20 years ago!  she was my youth group leader at church when i was in jr. high  : )  we hadn’t seen each other in years, but we got reconnected 2 years ago through a parenting class we were both in.  chi-lin is one of those people that oozes beauty!  whether she’s mothering her girls, creating with her camera, or running her amazingly fabulous store, there is more beauty in the world because chi-lin is.

 

she allowed me to come photograph her little willa the other day!  (willa plum, isn’t that the cutest name ever?!)  little willa was just 6 days old when i photographed her and she was being treated for jaundice.  that is why she had that blue light on her.   as you can see, willa is dearly wanted and loved!

 

thanks chi-lin for allowing me to come capture a bit of the beauty in your family and home!  you sure make cute babies!

welcome baby cooper!

no matter how they get here, every baby’s birth is a miracle!  cooper john was born february 7th via c-section.  and i was given the honor of photographing him meeting his two big brother.  it is incredible to be invited in to be a part of such a special moment in this family’s life!  to see the older brothers show interest and give love in their own special ways to their little baby brother was precious!  this was just the first few moments of being a family of 5, and how beautiful they were!  hope you can see some of the magic in these photos!
