When we were in Michigan I got to meet my nephew Grayson. He’s 10 weeks old here and oh so precious. He’s alert, curious, and stares with such intensity. My husband laughingly said that Grayson was judging us. I think he’s trying to figure out these new faces in his life. Sadly the 2,500 miles between us will greatly limit how often I can snuggle him. This, by far, is the worst thing about living so far away from family. My boys don’t get to grow up with their cousins. We will just have to make every visit count.
Introducing the beautiful Caroline. She’s five days old here and such an alert baby. Congratulations Ashtyn and Ben.
In about two weeks Ben and Ashtyn will welcome a little one into their family. We met at my favorite green space to celebrate these final moments of pregnancy. This park is also the place where Ashtyn’s parents renewed their vows on their 10th anniversary. The blanket we used for some of these belonged to Ashtyn’s grandmother. So many layers of love and family history in this portrait session. Here are my favorites.
