a little late. but right on time. | San Antonio Newborn Photographer

If you have been following this beautiful story then there is no need for explanation. skip on ahead…

But if you haven’t, I bet you’d love to catch up. Meet her family (baby Nolan was already growin!) Read her plan. See the belly. Share the joy. Now…soak it in. This really happened mama. Are you on cloud 9? You should be! Every bit of this was part of your perfect story. This was my view… :) undefined

& fresh outta the oven…meet Baby Nolan!

A few days later, we met up again. This time, cozy at home.

sharing secrets…he’s quite the little storyteller already! :)


those cheeks are just as smoochable as they come!


our goal was to be in the moment. capture life as four. it’s a beautiful, beautiful thing. especially getting to grow as a family, just a week after a long deployment. :) How happy is this little girl to have her daddy back?!

I think these are the yummiest toes I have seen in a very long time…


I’ve never shot a wide awake baby before! I’ve had a string of preemies, so to shoot a little man who arrived nine days late was fun! such big, bright baby blues!


& seriously. the goofiest little “finger toes” ever! teehee!


Nic, you are gorgeous. Look at all this love…


Breastfeeding is such a beautiful, intimate bonding experience. I just love how this image feels. My new favorite from the lensbaby. :) undefined

Mama, I so enjoyed being your storyteller through this experience. I adore your family & the love is shining brightly on everyone’s faces. May you enjoy every bit of this precious time together, now that everyone has safely arrived home! ::mwah::

now when can I get my hands on him again? ;)
