One of the best parts of being both a wedding and family photographer is getting to photograph our Fire and Gold couples’ families as they grow! Dalton and Jimmy Joe’s wedding photos went viral this past month after I posted images of Dalton wearing Ellie down the aisle. During all the craze about the Babywearing Bride, Dalton gave birth to her second child, a son. Sweet little Briar James. I went over to their home to photograph their little family a few hours before Briar turned two days old. Grace was 6 weeks old and I was amazed at how big she looked compared to a 2 day old. It’s incredible how much babies grow and change in the first few days and weeks after birth. That’s why a Fresh 48 session is so great! Those first 48 hours of life outside the womb are so precious and they pass so quickly. I loved being able to capture the normal, everyday interactions of the Mort family in the comfort of their own home. I watched in awe as Ellie kissed and cared for her new little brother. She stepped into her new role so gracefully. It reminded me of how quickly and easily John adjusted to being a big brother. Watching Ellie love little Briar brought me so much joy and those are some of my favorite images from this session.
Congratulations Mort family and welcome to the outside world little Briar! You are so loved!
