Miss Mackenzie Josephine, you are a little heartbreaker if I ever saw one!! Photographing Grace and David’s newborn lifestyle session in Lincoln, NE, was just a blessing! I was immediately charmed by their 1920s home and chocolate poodle, Fawkes, and that was even before I got my first look at MJ. Her sweet baby yawns and tiny little features gave me all the sweet feels, and it was such a pleasure to see Grace and David as new parents!
There we were.
In MJ’s adorable travel nursery. The light was pouring in from two beautiful windows and the old chimney stack added the most amazing character. Miss Mackenzie was asleep on her travel bean bag, and Fawkes, being the curious pooch he was, sauntered up to MJ and just gazed at her. I could tell he was already smitten but at the same time thinking, “What is this creature that has diverted all my parents’ attention?”
I’ve always found the relationship between a baby and a dog quite special. There is always a sense of familiarity, and I have found most dogs to be the gentlest around young children. I can’t wait to see how their little bond continues to grow as time goes on!
To the New Parents
Grace and David, I can’t say congratulations enough! I swear it was just yesterday when we were photographing your maternity pictures on Halloween. Watching the two of you become parents and meeting MJ and Fawkes has been the biggest blessing! You may not know it yet, but parenthood has come so naturally to the both of you! It will be so fun to see the milestones MJ conquers and the little person she will become with you both there to guide her!
Sending every bit of congratulations (and sleeping-through-the-night-thoughts) your way!! May your parent hearts always remember sweet MJ’s newborn lifestyle session in Lincoln, NE, as I’m sure you’ve noticed by now how fast time really goes!
