One year ago on Valentine's Day, we joked with Jana and Mark throughout their wedding about all the beautiful babies they'd have running around soon. They wanted to be parents, and were so ready to start their journey together as a family. None of us could have ever imagined how perfectly, miraculously timed the arrival of their first little love would be. This year, Valentine's Day, on their first anniversary, sweet baby Lillian entered this world. I mean, I just had goosebumps when I heard the news!!! It took about .0000007 seconds for me to fall in love with this precious little Valentine when I got to meet her for our photo shoot.
Those first few days with a new baby are so full of transition, emotion, uncertainty, exhaustion, love... I remember wondering how a body could contain it all. It is always such an honor to be invited into that intimate space with a brand new family. Seeing Jana and Mark tenderly and proudly care for Lillian made my heart swell so much. I know you're going to love the photos we captured of this sweet angel.
Jana, you may remember from her adorable Pinterest-worthy wedding, is the DIY queen. Naturally, the nursery she prepared is adorable down to the last tiny detail. It was the obvious choice for our setting, and all props and outfits used were taken from Lillian's closet and room- no photographer props needed :)
Jana and Mark, Lilly is just perfect. Thank you so much for letting me in to such beautiful moments in your lives. We can't wait to see what else God does through your family.
