So there’s a pretty cute reason for the radio silence over here – her name is Delilah Jane, and she arrived last weekend! This little one accompanied me to many of your weddings and portrait sessions in recent months, and ran her fair share of road races too =)
Delilah was born at 7:45am Saturday, July 19. She weighed 7 pounds, 5.7 ounces and was 19 inches long. She’s already growing like crazy and is a sweet, happy little girl. Alexus and Caleb are in love so I think we’ll have plenty of help. Thank you for all your well wishes and kind words, and for your patience while I paused some of my work over the past two weeks. Now I have an editing buddy and we will get caught up!
Here is a little peak at our newest addition <3
I brought my camera and had set it on the windowsill – one of the nurses grabbed it and caught some photos of Delilah’s arrival
Caleb and Alexus meeting their brand new sister a couple hours after she was born <3 – our fabulous friend/babysitter/assistant/photography student grabbed my camera for a few minutes when she brought the kids from home to meet the baby. Thank you Melanie for coming to the house at 1:30am and being there when the kids woke up, bringing them over, and just generally being awesome!!!
This little girl is going to be trying to steal the baby as much as possible!
Shortly after the kids arrived my super talented friend and fellow photographer came to capture Delilah’s first few hours with her family. I love love love that we have all of this saved because it all becomes a blur as the kids get older (even if being photographed a couple hours after having a baby and running on no sleep isn’t glamorous!). Thank you Angie!!
We had a little family movie/cuddle time before everyone else came to visit – Frank and I had gotten no sleep the entire night so we needed to be lazy and get some snuggle time with all three babies.

The boys were silly
She was not a fan of her first bath
Now a family of 5 – the photo makes it official!
Going home – 2 days old
The daughter of a photographer should have some real newborn photos right? It only took me a week!
Thank you to Juliet of Maya’s Curls for sending some sweet new headbands for Delilah to model! We have a couple more to use in the coming weeks when I torture my baby with the camera again =)
She always has her hands up by her face
And here is Alexus’s twin – anyone who knew Alexus as a newborn can probably see that the resemblance when Miss D is awake!
She looks so chubby here! And yet she’s the smallest of our three – gotta love the double chin!
Some more cuddles with big sister and big brother
Her tiny head in daddy’s hands <3
You’ll surely be seeing more of the crew in coming weeks. Now back to work for me!
