A new baby was brought into our lives on the first day of spring this year. No, not ours, in case that thought happened to cross your mind. We welcomed our newest adorable niece Ellie Lynn Knotts to our ever growing family. She is a perfect and precious little baby girl (even her taradactle screech =)
Perhaps you remember my post of Becky’s baby shower (one of Michael’s 8 sisters..lol).
Because of our busy schedule, and the life adjustment for Becky and Jim as new parents, we were only able to take some shots of Ellie last week. At the time of the shoot, Ellie was already 3 weeks old and not necessarily a newborn anymore. I didn’t think think those adorable sleepy shots would happen. If you cannot photograph a newborn in that first week sweet spot, it becomes increasingly difficult.
With a little gripe water (nothing harmful people) and a nice semi-long car ride to our studio…she surprisingly fell asleep for a solid 30 minutes. I cannot begin to tell you how proud I was of her.
I thought I’d share a couple shots that I took of Ellie while our intern, Briana, was photographing her.
Hopefully this will hold you over Becky & Jim, at least for a little while =0) PS. We love you all and so excited to see your perfect little family grow! xoxo
