This is my third session with this sweet family this year and oh how I have loved spending time with them! From their Rosemary Beach session when Kristen was expecting, to the birth story of Elle, and now her newborn shots with her big brother, Owen. Isn’t she a doll!
I’ve grown so very fond of the Bailey family. It begin with our beach session this past summer. Kristen and Brian had their adorable little boy Owen with them and were expecting their baby girl, whom they had already named, Elle. We happily roamed around Alys and Rosemary Beaches on a beautiful summer day, as I captured images of their family of three..soon to be four. You can see those images here. Kristen also asked me to photograph the birth of Elle and a newborn session for their Christmas cards.
So, after spending time with this family over the course of last year and capturing some of their big life moments, I grew to love this precious family. I’ll now share with you Elle’s birth story at St. Vincent’s Hospital. She is one blessed little girl to have Kristen and Brian as parents and Owen as her big brother!
No, we are not related, but I love that we share the name. I photographed Abby and Neal’s Shoal Creek wedding as second shooter with my friend Stacy, so I got to see her as a bride, and now as a mom. And, on both occasions she was beautiful, graceful, calm and relaxed.
Here are some of my favorite images of this sweet family at home just a few days after Durham was born. What a cutie!
Fur baby had to get in on the action too…
