The Nurse Family

I always love when my bonus families welcomes a new angel home. Diamond and Tim recently welcomed baby Emerald home and I had the pleasure and honor to capture some of their first family photos along with precious moments of Emerald. She is such a calm baby, but I can see that she will be strong, both physically and emotionally, and steady.

Check out more of the first photos of Emerald and her incredible family.

 

Chad + Micaela Make an Announcement

I thought it was just going to be another Thanksgiving family photo. Everyone was summoned outside, Mica's camera is set up, the sun is shining in our faces, and the elders don't know when and where to look lol jk. When Mica said "On the count of three everyone say baby" I really didn't think much of it....other than, I'm not jinxing my ovaries like that! It seemed pretty logical (other than the jinxing part) since there was a baby in the picture and my cousin's wife was pregnant. Since we OBVIOUSLY couldn't pull ourselves together, she decided to do it one more time. We still didn't get it! Mica mumbles, "This family can't catch a hint."

 

OMG! MICA IS PREGNANT!

 

Now that the cat is out of the bag, the hugs have been given, and the tears have been shed, We're obviously about to take photos to commemorate this moment.

 

Here's a glimpse into the joy that I was able to capture in this forced 15 minute photoshoot.
