Capturing Newborns- Fresh 48| Welcome, Lauryn!

I got to do another Fresh 48 session this week and I am in love! I have been photographing the Jacobs family for a couple of years now and I am beyond excited to help them welcome sweet Lauryn into the world. She is the perfect addition to this family full of boys (even the dog!!). 

The day Lauryn was born was warm and sunny. There was a great breeze, and it was a nice break from the heat we've had recently. Lauryn was born at almost 3 PM and I got to meet her just a few hours later. There was a lot of family already there, so I jumped into action pretty quickly. So quickly, in fact, that I completely forgot to take photos along the walk from the front door of the hospital to Lauryn and Ashley's room. Oops! Luckily, I took about a billion other photos, so I think we're ok. Ha!

Landon and Lawson burst into the room, each carrying a gift. One was a tiny set of pearls for Lauryn and the other was a charm for mommy. The boys were in awe of their baby sister and it was obvious they loved her right away. Landon gave her a million kisses and kept telling her how much he loved her. Lawson wanted to know what time she would wake up. They inspected her feet (the first picture they saw of her didn't show that she had any) and rubbed her hair. They stroked her face and gave lots of hugs. It was really precious. 

My time with the Jacobs family flew by. I got to photograph Lauryn with her big brothers, parents, some aunts and uncles, a couple of cousins, a close family friend, and all of her grandparents. The love in that little room was overwhelming and so beautiful. It was a pretty cool thing to capture. 

Welcome Earthside, sweet Lauryn. You are so very loved!!
