Over winter break, my family developed a SERIOUS jigsaw puzzle habit. I’m currently writing this while my laptop sits on top of puzzle pieces, because our entire dining room table is covered with pieces. I don’t know why I am enjoying it so much, but I suspect it’s both that I can easily get lost in it, as well as the satisfaction of feeling the pieces click together. I love making connections, whether it’s a puzzle, a math problem, or figuring out how someone new fits into my life.
Since Janelle and I didn’t photograph their wedding, I didn’t recognize Nolan’s name when her inquiry came in. It turned out that her engagement session with Nolan and Adam was one of my absolute favorite fall sessions to look through! Even though they weren’t one of our couples, it’s still so darn cool to watch people move through their lives, growing and adjusting.
Baby Ezra was the sweetest little thing! He rocked his newborn sessions with just the right amount of eyes open, newborn smiles, and sleeping. It didn’t hurt that he has the cutest canine siblings – Pippa and Oliver. Pippa was mostly concerned with making me her new BFF, but Oliver was a bit more watchful, making sure I didn’t try anything that wasn’t on the approved list of activities.
This session had some really sweet touches. A beautifully decorated nursery that included artwork from Adam’s family (hung up with branch from the Boundary Waters area!), a pillow from Nolan’s grandpa before he passed, and the bassinet that Nolan’s dad used as a baby.
Congrats, Nolan and Adam! I hope you’re getting out on lots of hikes with your new little addition and his canine companions.
Hoping to get on the schedule in 2020? Make sure to get in touch! We have a fairly travel-intensive wedding season this year, so the number of newborn sessions I schedule will be limited from June through October 2020. I usually book my newborn sessions anywhere from two to five months out from due date, so try not to wait!
