My dear friend Jess and her baby boy….love seeing them together.

Seeing your closet friends become parents is such an awesome experience. Here are a few shots snapped quickly at sunset a couple weeks back.

Much love to Eli, from Auntie J!

baby Elijah {newborn}

While we were photographing in NYC, one of my bestest friends, along with her wonderful hubster Trey, welcomed sweet baby Elijah into this world. I was sad to not be there to photograph his birth, but going to the hospital and holding the precious guy when I returned, made my sadness melt away pretty quickly. :)

Brett and I went over one morning when he was about a week old for a sweet little family session. I’ve been anticipating the day that these two would be parents, because I just know they will be so wonderful for this job….which is one of the best jobs to have I might add.;)

I told Trey, “Real men change diapers.” Is it not true mamas?

My friend Jess did Elijah’s nursery up so cute. He also is STOCKED on some adorable boy clothes….some I can’t wait to see him in since they were his buddy Gabe’s. :)

Love you Jess, Trey, and Elijah! Can’t wait to watch your little guy grow in strength and love.

Can’t wait to meet him.

Brett and I shot a fun engagement session in NYC this past weekend, and while we were gone one of my best friends had her first baby.

I was so excited to see him and went up to the hospital after I got home last night. Here is the first frame I took, and it’s my favorite.

He is precious. My friend Jessica is going to be such a great mom.

Much more of sweet Elijah to come…..
