Our baby GIRL is here! We are SO in love! Alice Jane was born on 2.19.15, 5:31pm, 7lb 13oz, 21 inches, and she is perfect 🙂 Of course I am biased but seriously…she is. She’s a good sleeper, good eater, only fussy when her belly is empty and she loves to SMILE. I’ve been posting a ton of her sleepy newborn smiles to my instagram feed (#alicejane219) and even caught a few in the studio shots. Now that she is 2 weeks old the smiles are getting fewer and far between, yet I have to believe she’s just that HAPPY boys are absolutely smitten with their little sister. It truly feels like our family is now complete ~ an absolute blessing.
In my last maternity photo post I mentioned that she was scheduled for delivery at the end of the month (the 24th). But at my last dr appointment my body was showing signs of preeclampsia. I was very fortunate this pregnancy to not have any complications from my autoimmune issues (and had actually been taking a baby aspirin daily to help prevent preeclampsia), but as soon as my ob saw my platelet count drop she brought me in for my c-section the same day. I’m incredibly thankful to have had a safe and smooth delivery! Aside from my immune system coming back with a vengeance 🙁 both Alice and I are doing well <3
Our time spent at Presbyterian Main was great. My good friend and amazing photographer Amy Kolodziej came to capture Baby Alice’s first hours – the hospital photos she took are absolutely priceless to me! I feel so blessed to have had her take them for us newborn photos. I knew that there was no way I would be able to do a full session with her. Instead I did 1 or 2 set ups and tried to shoot every other day between day 3 and 14 of her life. I’m excited with the shots I was able to get! The one of she and I together was one of the hardest photos I’ve ever tried to take with a tripod…yet so worth it 🙂 I know I’ll be taking more over the next month while I am out on maternity leave but here are my favorites from the first 2 weeks of her life. Enjoy!
