So much joy in the Pate house with Lydia here now! She is such a beautiful baby and was perfect for our shoot in every way...I swear I never even heard a sound from her (not that I would have minded if I had). James and Erin are so obviously in love with her and it completely shows in photos. Thank you for letting me be a part of Lydia's first week of life! I am so happy to know her.
Now, I am the lucky one because I get to see Shep pretty often. As neighbors and friends, I will get to watch this little guy grow up. But getting to photograph him in the process is pretty special too. He is an old soul trapped in a 4 month olds body (I mean, just look at that bald head and knowing stare). And truly, he is such a sweet baby. I can't wait for our next round of photos in just 4 months!
I first met the Nabors family when Ashe was just a few days old. He is running and laughing now and will be a proud big brother in just a few weeks. Sarah told me she wanted to capture "Ashe being Ashe" and to have photos of their relationship with just him before his baby sister arrives. That's pretty much the best description of any photo shoot I could ask for. I'm so happy to have shared this time with you all...can't wait to hear the good news of Ashe's little sister!
I know I've said it before, but I really love watching families grow. And getting to be a part of the first days with a new baby in the house is truly an honor for me. After your first baby, you see a newborn so differently as you look at them through your eyes and also the eyes of your kids and whatever stage they are in as well. It's magical...and let's be honest, a little exhausting too. Sweet baby John, you have so much love in your house. Welcome to the world of 5 Farless family! You all are pros already:)
Sweet baby Liza...I think most of Greensboro has been waiting for your arrival and we are so happy you are here! The world is a better place with you in it. I feel pretty lucky because I will get to watch this little girl grow up on a daily basis...this is one of the best parts of being neighbors. My daughter Della already gets upset when she doesn't get to see and hold baby Liza daily, so I know she will be well integrated into our life...even if it's Della making sure of that:) Liza, you have some of the very best parents who love you unconditionally. So many fun things in store for this new family of 3!
