I wanted Reed’s newborn photos to have more of a lifestyle feel to them, and I loved the idea of doing them in his nursery with both Brandon and I. I wanted to be able to capture what our new life was like as a family of three and show everyone Reed’s cute nursery and of course Jess NAILED my vision perfectly! I couldn’t be more happy with how these turned out! We love using Jess for all of our photos because they ALWAYS turn out amazing. She has become like family to us since she is there through every special moment. I will treasure these pictures forever, and I can’t thank her enough for giving me these moments frozen in time that I can look back on over and over again. Getting professional pictures done is something I believe to be SO important. Time, especially with a child, passes so quickly and to re-live these moments again is so special. I HIGHLY recommend Jess to anyone who wants their special and precious moments captured in a way that will last forever. (Find her site Here)
I can’t believe how much my sweet boy has grown and changed since these photos were taken. Looking at these pictures and reminiscing on that first week as a parent makes me laugh and cry! HA! That first week was SO hard. I hardly slept, I was in constant pain, I had NO idea what I was doing, and I loved every minute of it. I still feel like I have no clue what I am doing, but things are definitely getting easier and I am starting to get used to life with a baby.
Not only have I grown and learned so much about myself since becoming a mom, but Brandon and I have grown so much together as new parents. Seeing Brandon be a Dad is overwhelmingly beautiful. He is amazing with Reed. Seeing him hold our baby and sing him to sleep has made me love him deeper than I ever thought possible. Having a baby has brought us closer together and made our love so much stronger, but it hasn’t come without some struggles. Between sleepless nights and trying to figure out our different parenting styles we’ve had our share of rough nights, and days! I couldn’t have asked for a more caring and selfless husband to go through all this with though. As I look at these pictures of Brandon and Reed these feelings are just magnified and my heart is melted!
We are so very blessed to have Reed in our lives and that he chose us to be his parents. I feel so close to my Heavenly Father when I hold him because I know he is straight from heaven. I absolutely love being a mom and I cannot wait for what adventures lie ahead of us. I am so very grateful for the good and the hard times that comes with raising a baby, but the snuggles, smiles, and kisses make it all SO worth it!
Thanks for reading beauties!
