Our Newborn Session

Our Newborn Session

I’m so excited to share these sweet photos by Sarah Jayne Photography from W’s newborn session in his nursery – he was only 13 days old! And I was thrilled to work with Sarah as I’ve been a huge fan of her beautiful photography for years – she has such an amazing eye for the cutest details!

101216_babywinston_newborn-45We had W wear one of the beautiful day gowns my mother made for him – it’s smocked with little lambs – but unfortunately, he seemed too warm in it and got a little fussy so we had to take him out of it. 🙁 I think I’ll try to take some more photos of him in it before he outgrows it because it’s really really adorable!


101216_babywinston_newborn-89When my Mom came to visit, she had the prettiest pom pom bow made for one of W’s gifts and we found the perfect home for it on W’s antique rocking horse. If you want to see more details of W’s room, check out my nursery reveal post.

I think it will be fun to take the same photo later on to see how much he’s grown.

101216_babywinston_newborn-260101216_babywinston_newborn-190I love brushing W’s hair with my grandfather’s baby brush and comb set.

101216_babywinston_newborn-29101216_babywinston_newborn-95My great grandmother crocheted this baby cap and I think it’s so special that W can wear this treasured heirloom now.

101216_babywinston_newborn-51As luck would have it, the day Sarah had availability for the shoot fell on a day that my parents were in town so we were able to get a few special shots with them, as well.101216_babywinston_newborn-158


101216_babywinston_newborn-168Our first month with W was filled with emotional ups and downs and lots and lots of learning but as J&I have started to feel more confident in our roles as parents, we’re fully embracing our new life and love watching our little blessing from God grow and change before our eyes. I’m so happy we have these beautiful photos to look back on and remember this time of momentous change in our lives. xox.
