Brittany is a teacher at Grove Elementary where I also work as a mental health therapist. She and her husband, Drew, recently had their first son, Kaiden. It was a warm day this past Saturday at the Rock Quarry Garden in Cleveland Park.
|Kaiden gave this photo shoot a thumbs up. Thanks baby, your too kind!|
|This blanket was hand made for Brittany. I love the blue and brown together. Kaiden apparently likes to grab his hair often when he is sleeping as he is doing here.|
|This little boy loves his paci that the hospital gave him. No expensive ones for him. We were able to sneak it away from him for a few shots including this up close shot of him sleeping in a basket.|
|The sound of the water was not soothing enough for him so back to the Paci :)|
|As is often the case with baby photo shoots, we took a break to feed baby Kaiden who is two months old now.|
I love how small his ears and toes were. I captured these shots while he was feeding.
|Here is the entire family. Drew and Brittany met at college. Their roommates were dating each other and they met through them. It was a fun story to hear.|
|This is one of my favorite shots. Look at this adoring father. From the embrace he gives his wife to the gentle touch of his newborn's toes. Oh goodness-it makes me melt!|
|For a couple who was not planning on having a baby anytime soon, they sure do love this little blessing.|
|Kaiden was getting fussy towards the end of the shoot. Surprisingly though he loved being in this makeshift hammock I create by using cloth that is held by both ends. Look at his cute little arm hanging out.|
|His eyes look deep in thought here.|
|I will end with this sweet shot. I believe he actually blinked but it looks as though he is smiling and sleeping. So cute!|
I had a great time meeting Brittany's family!
