Eli’s newborn portraits…

YAY!  It’s the post I’ve been waiting for at LauraWatsonPhotography.com!

My BFF from college, Laura, is nothing short of AMAZING! Being a mother of 2 herself, she knew exactly how to hold him and calm him back to sleep, so she could mold him into a thousand different positions… and how to coax Lily into submission for the perfect shot. I am so, so thankful to have these incredible portraits of Eli from only his 4th day on  this Earth. Just like all of the pictures that Laura has taken for us, we will treasure them FOREVER!

She even humored me and created this shot for my little Easter season baby.  Lily having a July 4th birthday… made me want to make his holiday related, too.  I’m going to take a picture of him holding this giant Easter egg every year to show how he’s grown from this size.

Go to her blog to see more of  them and be sure to leave a sweet comment… so we might have a prayer for her to KEEP taking our pictures even though we live FAR outside her area of service.  Click here to view the post and pictures:

Love the pictures! I went to her site to check all of them out. They are perfect! Maybe by the time our 3rd arrives if we are blessed with a third I will be on the ball enough to book a photographer for newborn portraits. Haha!

PS- I love your idea of Eli holding the Easter egg every year! SUPER cute!

I love these! They are all so great. How will you ever choose which ones to frame? I'm still incredibly jealous that you have a photographer for a best friend..... :)
