A baby niece is born!
My husband's brother and his wife just had their third baby, a sweet baby sister for two big brothers to dote on and protect! We were so blessed to be able to travel and see them when Abigail was three weeks old (thank you Beth for hosting our wild band of 6!) and I probably did not soak up enough sweet smelling baby cuddles while we were there for a long weekend! My youngest is in the throws of wild toddlerhood and sweet cuddles have been replaced with screaming demands for snacks and a few moments of sweetness while we read books each night.
Lifestyle newborn sessions can take several hours to fit in feedings, wardrobe changes and squirmy toddlers. Since we were staying with them, I shot the nursery in the morning when the light was coming in from the eastern facing windows and the family session in the evening when the light was best on the other side of the house. Beth's mom helped decorate the nursery while the south was covered in snow and ice in February and it was such a darling little girl's room with sweet details of a vintage dress that was Beth's and a perfect gold name above the crib framed by feminine paper letters.
Congratulations to John and Beth on their new precious daughter who brings our Ensley cousin clan to an even dozen so far!
