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!
