Douglasville Newborn Photographer | Scarlet

Great news!! We celebrated Graham’s (almost) 6 month birthday party today! It has been one wild ride, but we wouldn’t have traded it for anything. Finally, life has calmed down a bit and we’ve rebounded from the rocky start we had (3 hospital visits in Graham’s first 3 weeks).

We had the privilage to meet up with another sweet, fresh little family similar to ours. This sweet little family just had their litttle Scarlet 5 weeks early, and they got to come home on time! What a miracle! Then, a few weeks later, they found out she had a few minior complications and needed to go to Children’s Hospital of Atlanta (just like our family)!! Needless to say, I feel such a connection with Kirsty. Thankfully, both our families made it out unscathed and I got to head over to her home for a sleepy session with her adorable Scarlet.

Scarlet was awake when I got to her house.

We only had a few minutes to some photos with her eyes open before she decided it was her naptime.:)

One big yawn and she was asleep for good.

We swaddled her in Kirsty’s own baby blanket that her great-grandmother knitted! Yes! You heard that right! It was even the last blanket that she ever knitted. I love sentimental photos.

I looooved Scarlet’s nursery! The colors were perfect and her mom and dad got that awesome gray wing back chair and turned it into a rocking chair. Love it! And there was an amazing fuzzy rug! A photographer’s dream nursery. 😉

The next few are so priceless. I can just imagine seeing her adorable silhouette on one of those textbook images of a baby in the womb.

We had to get a few with mom and dad. Even though I’m not sharing all of the photos here, I promise we got some of dad’s face. 😉 There’s nothing more precious than holding a baby in your arms. I read a quote once that said to hold a baby and/or a puppy every chance you get. Holding my own baby, I know that holding him while he’s sleeping is one of my favorite things to do. I know Kirsty will cherish these photos to remind her of these precious, fleeting moments.:)

And before I left, I had to get some of Scarlet on the bed. Before her mom and dad know it, she’ll be jumping on this thing!
