OKLAHOMA CITY/EDMOND OKLAHOMA NEWBORN, CHILD AND FAMILY DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHER
Four months and 7lbs ago, Emma Hope joined the world and blissfully changed ours. I didn’t think it would take me this long to share some images, but since December I have experienced a new level of love and I’ve wanted nothing more than to soak in every single second with our girl.
Every age, milestone and memory has been my favorite, but seeing her thunder thighs in her high chair eating cereal with her daddy is currently holding the number one spot. She held his finger tightly as she eagerly waited for the next spoonful, quickly learning to use her tongue and taste mommy’s milk in a new way.
Every age, milestone and memory has been my favorite, but seeing her…
I imagined myself in a cozy room with a baby in my arms for so many years that I ached to bring it to life.
He is so loved and I think you’ll see just how much in these images.
And as I sit here trying to formulate the last year into words fitting for all the feelings, our baby girl is kicking me, making it nearly impossible to imagine traveling any other way with anyone else to get where we are today.
Mother’s Day. It's not always bouquets and breakfast in bed, is it?
This round was different. I went in completely prepared and full of hope knowing that no matter what, I'd be strong enough for any outcome. I had just survived the biggest blow of my life, so worst case scenario?
She was welcomed into this world on Valentine's Day, which is fitting if you knew just how much she is loved.
You'd think she'd be just a shadow, but nope, not with Fred...
They see the scoreboard and post-game snacks. Their parents see sportsmanship.
