I’ve captured a few sessions for this sweet family the past couple of years, and I have to say as they grow the world becomes a brighter place. This makes baby # 3 for this section of the crew, and this year I captured older siblings Tristan and Mahayla at Easter; as well as during the summer with Amy’s Parents for a little Grandparent session.
Little MJ (Marshall James) surprised everyone by entering the world about 3 weeks early and at a healthy 7lbs 5oz! I shot his mother’s maternity images a few weeks prior and even though then she still had a few months to go I had a feeling he’d come early…just not 3 weeks early 🙂 It’s true, babies have “their” own timeline…and that feeds right over in to their newborn session.
I couldn’t get this handsome little man to open his eyes for any.thing! He’d peek one eye or the other, but both were SCARCE…this little man loves to sleep! I managed to sneak ONE single shot of both of his eyes cracked just barely and he’s looking at me like “Lady, why are you trying to wake me up?” I love it!
His parents, Michael & Amy, are huge MTSU, Middle Tennessee State Fans and Alumni. So it was only fitting that wee little MJ get his first taste of the Blue and White in the fashion of his first MTSU toboggan Michael got his blue MTSU lights out of the attic and they made a perfect accompaniment for what will certainly be only his first time wearing by Raider Blue.
Of course since he came before Christmas it only seemed right that this little gift from God be put into a stocking…mommy and daddy’s little stocking stuffer seemed to enjoy the swaddle up time in the giant decorative sock. Of course I broke out the “My First Christmas” hat since it was his first Christmas and all…it was just too.adorable laying in the sleigh.
Ok ok enough of my rambling about how precious the images are…see for yourselves! Thank you Amy & Micheal for allowing me the honor to capture these priceless times in your lives, and for being some seriously amazing friends! Love you all!!!
