It’s a rainy, grey day in here in Maryland so I thought I’d share a little sunshine from Minnesota this morning.
Nicole and Alex, my soon to be sister and brother in law, had the most perfect little baby girl named Brooke, and last month Tony and I flew out to meet her. She is the most beautiful, chill little baby girl and I love her to pieces. They are such an adorable little family and I was so happy to get to do their first official family photos.
Check out their maternity session here first and then scroll down to meet baby Brooke.
For their session we simply walked out their back door. They have a great little park right behind their new house so we decided to do their photos in a spot that Brooke would probably be playing in daily as she gets bigger. If I had golden light like that in my backyard I would probably lay out on a blanket in that field every day. I think I probably said that 10 times during their shoot. I can’t help it. Light like that makes me very happy. Of course we took photos all week long so below are a bunch from the rest of our stay. I love the giant window in the front of their house.
Nicole made the below wall hanging for Alex for Valentine’s Day 2011. I thought it made a good backdrop for Brooke. Tony was a natural! 🙂
