Thaddeus Grey

Baby boy is here!

Thaddeus Grey Andrews made his appearance ten days early, much to our surprise. He was born Monday, December 1st at 5:08pm and weighed 7 lbs 1 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long.

We were totally caught off guard when I got out of bed, felt a pop and looked down. Yep. My water broke. Talk about a shocker. It was 4:30am and we had nothing packed, no sitter lined up for Lincoln and my mom was eight hours away.

We felt unprepared and overwhelmed but despite the chaos, everything ended up working out beautifully. We are truly thankful for the amazing friends who kept Lincoln last minute, for our nurse who was a complete blessing and a great "stand-in" in my mom's absence, for a smooth delivery and healthy baby boy. So grateful.

And photo cred goes to Kim of Kim Till Dawn Photography for these beautiful images of our family. Thanks a million, Kim!

Miss Florence.

Lifestyle Newborn Session :: The Arrow House

I had the honor of taking pictures of this little beauty (and her gorgeous mom + dad) just a couple weeks before Christmas and wow, what a sweet time watching them as a little family of three. I'm not going to lie, I definitely teared up a few times. The joy that children bring into our lives is really something special. It's hard to describe. Or grasp onto.

It's just...

a miracle.

Florence was awake almost the entire shoot but I think she just didn't want to miss anything. And those eyes. Beautiful! So thankful I got to capture some of these moments for Adam + Elise. Welcome to the world, Florence Ruth! You are amazing!
