So I warned y’all that I was going to be blogging another set of newborn photos from this sweet newborn session!! If you missed Monday’s blog post be sure to take a look, I think you’ll fall in love with little Mr. O just like I did!!! 🙂 🙂 I really don’t know where to begin with this blog post. There are so many things I want to say to Jenn & Ben and their two little men… and I don’t know if it’s because I have so much that I want/could say… or if it is because I don’t want to screw up what I do say that makes me have no idea where to begin. (If you just followed along with that rambling, well awesome… it was all over the place just like my thoughts).
To Jenn, Benn, little mr. C & O, I love you guys. I love y’all and who you are as a family!!! I love that we are now only an 1.5 (well 2 hours since I found a way to get there that avoids the crazy highways) hours away, I love that our kids love each other and that’s with only spending a few hours with one another on a few separate occasions, I love that Jesus oozes out of y’all and who you are as a family!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that I had the opportunity to photograph y’all as a family of 3, to now as a family of 4!! I love y’alls kindness and love. I love y’all!!
Jenn & Ben, I love that over the last 5 years I’ve seen y’all go from the beginnings of dating (I still to this day can remember the excitement and squeals that Jenn had when it all began), to meeting Ben at Jenn’s PA school graduation, to him having to put up with “KENDRA & JENN”, to him secretly letting me know when he was going to pop the question, to Gary & I knowing it was going to happen and making vacation happen in Wilmington so we could be there a few days later to celebrate AND take their engagement photos, to the engagement, to the wedding where I had the privilege to stand beside Jenn & Ben as they said ” I do “, to Jenn & I realizing we were due within days of one another, to our firstborns, to now with their newest addition… to everything and anything that is between!! Love you two and LOVE LOVE LOVE watching y’all be mommy & daddy!!!
Jenn, you are one of my dearest & best friends. We’ve been through lots together in the last 11.5(ish) years… lots of good, some bad, some of everything in between (and shared a lot of clothes!!! yes random). But I sit here and all I can think about is the good, and the friendship we have shared over the years, and I wouldn’t trade any bit of it. We’ve done our adult years of growing up together (yes most of them like 1300 miles away from each other) & I am so glad because with that we’ve had the chance to stand with one another at graduations, engagements, wedding days, and now babies. I am so proud of you and the woman that you are and so very thankful for you and your friendship!!! Ohh little mr. O, I am soooo excited to see you grow up and see what God has in store for you!!! You are a sweetheart & I LOVED every single second of my time with you!!! Thanks for keeping me in your sight most of the day, I adored being followed with those beautiful blue eyes of yours!!!
Jenn & Ben, thank y’all for wanting me to document y’alls lives. I’ve had all or part of your family in front of my camera a few times this past year and it has just been such an honor, joy, and privilege to document & be part of y’alls family and your memories!!!! Thank you for trusting me 100% & for being up for whatever idea I might have had!!! I’m so excited to be so close and have this opportunity to document y’alls memories!!! Thank y’all!!!
Ohh mr. C!!!! You weren’t the fondest of me this time around, but I will say I loved hanging out with you and the hugs, high fives, and smiles you did happen to give me!! Can’t wait to see you again!!!
Y’all I hope you enjoyed this family and their newborn photos as much as I did!!!
I’ve had a few people ask me if I came to Charlotte to photograph this session. The answer is… YES!!! I am always up for traveling for sessions and/or weddings, especially a newborn session!! My newborn sessions are lifestyle sessions and because of that I really need to be in your home photographing y’all be a family in your home… so if you’ve ever wondered if I’d be willing to head up y’alls way for a session… well now you know that I do & will (granted there may be a travel fee involved 😉 but know that I am totally game for coming… just holler at me!!!).
