life with a newborn :: vaida bea

It wasn't all that long ago that I was out at the Rizley's farmhouse photographing them as a family of three. It was snowing then, unseasonably cold. And since then the seasons have changed with an explosion of growth and green, and the baby on the inside is now on the outside. A tiny sister for miss Cora. 

We spent most of this session outdoors, minus a little nursing break inside. They showed me their garden, played on the hammock, tussled on a blanket in the grass, blew bubbles and played in the kiddie pool. Cora was sort of in charge of the show, but baby Vaida is easy going, as second babies have to be, I suppose. :) 

This is a beautiful family, gorgeous on the inside every bit as on the outside. I'm so happy for their newest addition and all that the future holds for them. 

Also, an update: I'm suddenly booked solid through all of August. If you're looking to have your own family photographed, there are still some openings in September, October and November. Please reach out soon to book! After that, I'll be hitting pause on my photography work as I prepare for a new baby due middle of december. Thanks for all your amazing support!
