I love documenting special milestones for couples and families. It’s one of the things I enjoy most about being a photographer! The honor of capturing someone’s happiest moments is even greater when that moment belongs to one of your friends. I had the honor of photographing my dear friend Stephany and her love Ryan’s engagement and wedding, but when they asked me to take newborn photos of their sweet baby daughter, I was thrilled! I spent the day on a recent trip to my hometown catching up with the new parents, photographing the adorable Eleanor Ruby, and sneaking in as many baby snuggles as I could.
Steph and Ryan are wonderful parents! Baby Eleanor is one lucky girl!
Eleanor is a beautiful, sweet baby, who was incredibly patient with our outfit and prop changes. From snuggled in to baby ballerina, she put up with all of our antics!
Grandma Pam stopped by and we snuck her into a few photos. Three generations of strong, beautiful and loving women here.
