A few days ago I had the pleasure of meeting the newest member of the Hladek family, Hazel. I went to Bethany College with both of her parents, Liz and Luke. As it happens, we all grew up, moved on with our adult lives, and (other than social media) lost touch. I knew Liz was expecting (thanks Instagram and Facebook!), and when she contacted me to shoot a Lifestyle Newborn session, I was super excited. Liz is a preschool teacher and an early childhood art teacher with impeccable taste. Naturally, I felt so privileged she wanted ME to photograph their brand new bundle of joy. I emailed Liz that I would love nothing more, and ONE DAY later, sweet Hazel was born. It was so great catching up with Luke and Liz and meeting Hazel and Faye (their fur baby). Faye is the best big sister, by the way.
When I walked into the nursery, I couldn't believe how gorgeous it was. I mean just beautiful. I hope I have captured the absolute joy I felt radiating from every corner of their home. Here are a few of my favorites....
This is one of the most beautiful newborn outfits I have ever seen. We were going to shoot this photo without a diaper and, unfortunately, the little princess tinkled in her britches. At least we have the beautiful onesie documented!
Lots of Love,
