Big Brother Meets Baby

A few weeks ago, I was honored to be asked to capture this special moment for my friend's sweet family.  I told my friend Jana that I was worried I'd be gone for Spring Break and miss the occasion, but I'd be there if I could.  Luckily, little Jordy decided to make his appearance sooner than expected. It was heartwarming to watch the interactions between big brother Jake and his baby brother, and document the story as it happened.  Being able to capture first family photos was a complete privilege!  Congratulations, Jana and Josh!

I waited out front for Jake and Dad to arrive, and I followed them in to find Mommy's room.

Time for snuggles with Mommy before meeting Baby Jordy
Jake went with Mom and Dad to the nursery to get the baby.
He was very interested! 

I just love his "Big Bro" shirt his mommy ordered for him!

Jake was pretty interested in his new trains, too. 

See?  He kept those trains close :)

Your little family is the sweetest.  Best wishes to you all!

Motherhood ~ Jennifer

I recently had the opportunity to do a maternity photo shoot for a friend's daughter.  The day of the baby shower was coming, and I was asked to do photos of the mom-to-be and her husband, as well as capture some details of the baby shower.  The "Peter Rabbit" theme was so adorable!

Jennifer doesn't know what she's having
"Ten Little Fingers, Ten Little Toes,
Boy or Girl, No One Knows!"  

The farm and garden centerpieces were really fun!

Onion centerpieces?  Too cute!

Our session began at the old Cotton Mill apartments in downtown Janesville.  
I love the texture of the brick against her bright pink sweater!

 We also took some photos by the downtown river walk.

Congratulations, and Best Wishes, Jennifer and Paul!    Thank you so much for allowing me to capture this time in your lives.  I can't wait to hear the baby news in a few weeks!
