So there I am, emailing back and forth with Erica, setting up plans for her maternity photo shoot. And then the next email comes in and she tells me she’s at the hospital and in labor as we speak, at 32 weeks! With an amazing sense of humor she tells me the maternity session is probably not going to happen. I have so much awe for families who deliver preemie babies, I can only imagine the strength needed to have a baby do some of his growing in the NICU. So after a month living apart, Dylan was very happily welcomed home, and I was so excited to come over to help celebrate his homecoming.
Everyone piled onto the big master bed for most of our photo shoot, one of my favorite places to photograph snuggly new babies and their families. Furry older siblings included!
Look at those amazingly delicious teeny tiny feet…
Sweet sweet boy and a big yawn.
Such special moments with Dad. They grow so quickly, you know he’s going to love seeing how he used to fit into his hands like that.
And a few quiet moments with mom in the nursery.
