• Baby Mason

busy busy busy. We leave for our fall youth retreat and then I leave from the retreat to shoot my second to last weeding of the YEAR! I’m so excited for these last two weddings but I’m also excited for a break! 4 engagement sessions, 1 workshop and 2 weddings to go!  I can see the light!! So today is just a little post for a little man that has stole our hearts. Baby Mason was born on October 23rd and we actually got to see him and hold him on his actual BIRTHDAY! He’s tiny and cute. Michael and I love watching this new phase of like unfold for Seth and Em. The key word there is “watching”. We’re so not in the “baby” phase right now

but it’s fun to have friends that are! Mason is a perfect baby boy and as I watched Emily hold him, I just couldn’t believe this was happening! I feel like I was just taking their wedding photos! I’m so thankful they are right down the road so that Michael and I can be a part of Mason’s life. Two days after he was born, we went over and shot his newborn portraits. I love being able to do this for friends and family and even though babies/newborn shoots aren’t really my thing… I have to admit that I really love some of these! Mason, you’re already super photogenic, just like your momma and daddy! Enjoy this little post and be sure to let Seth and Em know how adorable their baby boy is!!!!

These were taken the day he was born!

A few days later:)

so sweet:)

I wish I could take credit for the “Mason” jar idea… but that was all em’s idea! So cute!

love it!
