Ask Me!

words cannot describe.

I got a call around 11 on Saturday morning.

I've been anxiously awaiting a good friend going into labor (overdue!) and wasn't sure I wanted to book anything when she was on call to be induced. But, I decided that waiting around pacing and praying wasn't doing anyone any good, so when dad said their lovely daughter was 8 days old, I asked if I could get to her as soon as possible... Oh those lovely flexible newborn bones... :) So we agreed on 3PM and I proceeded to dig up my yard.

Not only was this precious little doll tiny and perfect in every way, but her parents totally rock. I ran out of coffee that morning and so Joan made me iced coffee, which I drank two of. We sat in their dining room with my little "outdoors" set up and chatted and waited for baby to sleep. Dad was totally in love with baby, in a way I don't see many fathers with brand-new bundles.

All in all, I can't recall the last time I was so happy with a newborn session.
Thanks so much guys for letting me play with all 6lbs of your new darling.

I'll be back for more iced coffee.

the one with the big white flower hat is my favorite!! She is just precious and the photos are OUTSTANDING. You have such a gift for capturing the essence of your subjects, Erin.

I really love these photos. Especially the black and white one with the mother holding the baby. She's just so tiny and precious!

Thank you so much, I hope you guys enjoy viewing them as much as I loved taking them. What a dream she was.... And such a beauty as well.

These are just phenomenal. She is beautiful and you captured everything perfectly. The digging & yard loss is a small price to pay. =D

Kristin said...

Unbelievable. She is beautiful all her own but you captured it perfectly. Someday when I have my second child I may be asking Joan for your contact information.

Joan said...

Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. We had a great time with you and watching you work with our Baby Kate. You are AMAZING! We are thrilled with the pictures!
We will have you back for iced coffee soon ;)

That has to be one of the most adorable newborns I have ever seen! And perfect photos to match. Wow.

Beth said...

These photographs very much resemble Anne Geddes photography, which I love! Congratulations Joan on having "Anne Geddes" type photography with your Katelyn. She is absolutely gorgeous and now I see why Grandma Walton is totally wild with joy! Amazing photography Erin. You did have an amazingly precious little subject!

I love the one with the white bow but I am partial to black and white photography too. Looks like Daddy got his hands in on that! I am sure he is totally in love again, which he should be. He is the first man she will fall in love with!

Many Regards and I'd say this was an amazing photo shoot...for everyone, especially little Katelyn Rose!

Love and Hugs,
