Newborn Photos & the Birth Announcement

One of my close girlfriends came over when Harvey was just 5 days old and took some newborn pictures of him for us. She did it for FREE (she is trying to build up her family/lifestyle portion of her photography business), and we got some totally great ones! I finally got the announcements & thank yous sent out, so I can actually post some of the pictures here now. I love how everything turned out!

As a quick note – I wasn’t actually intending on being in any of the pictures, so my hair is goofy and I don’t have makeup on and I’m wearing an old black t-shirt. Oops! Still, when Nicky asked if I wanted some pics of me with the kids, I had to say yes or I’d have regretted it for sure. How’s that for “staying in the picture“?! πŸ™‚


  1. These pictures are gorgeous–kids, mom and all! (I had to spend a moment uttering wordless sounds of cuteness before I could type this. “You having a moment?” my husband asked me.)


    1. LOL, well thanks!

  2. These are amazing. I love Stella and Harvey both in blue- too cute!

  3. Those pictures turned out great! And you look great!

  4. Such great pictures and way to go for staying in the picture!! Our newborn photoshoot is tomorrow and I’m all kinds of self-conscious about the giant circles AND bags under my eyes but I’m doing it anyway. I’m going to ask for those soft-focus shots all the way!!

  5. LOVE them all!

    I hopped into some of Bryson’s newborn photos and am glad I did! You never get those moments back. Sigh.

    BEAUTIFUL! I love the natural light!!!!
