Continuing with my blogging catch-up with a sweet girl born back in April… The mom, Kris, has been one of my best friends since the 5th grade. We roomed together at Clemson. She was the maid of honor in my wedding. We have experienced so much together, and one of my favorite things has been seeing her become a mom. I had only done a handful of newborn sessions when I photographed Kris' first child, Hutson, in 2011. We had just come back from France and were living in SC for a few months before moving to Oklahoma. I am so thankful that we were once again living in SC when Kris had her second baby, a sweet baby girl named Adeline.
Birth photography was not for Kris (which is completely fine, it isn't for everyone!), but she did ask me to come to the hospital the next day and document the first time Hutson met his new baby sister. It brought back such sweet memories of when Matthew brought Jacob to the hospital to meet Elizabeth.
With the exception of my sister's epic 8-day-long newborn session, Adeline's 4 part session holds the record. It was really because I wanted to spend as much time as possible with Kris while she was on maternity leave! Part 1 was the hospital. Part 2's focus was Adeline. Part 3's focus was Hutson and Adeline. Part 4 was family pictures. It was great spending so much time with this wonderful family.
It has been YEARS since Kris and I have lived close to each other, but we definitely have one of those relationships where we can just pick up right where we left off. Love you girl!
