The Destigter Family : Welcome Home William

Thank goodness it is Thursday its the time in the week where I go back and try to blog those sessions I totally spaced on! This one especially is crazy, probably one of my favorites.

My new family (new by marriage)  has been such a rock when it comes to moving to KC and growing my business in a new place. They get my vision and have adorable children so it all works out. They have experienced pretty much every kind of Family session I offer and are now the experts of my brand and what my photography is all about.

Especially my 2 year old niece Kate, she gets it even when she is not a fan of it. She is such a  great personality and its been so great photographing her from when she was tiny to now when she is growing as a big sister and toddler. 

All of this to say, earlier this year we welcomed her little brother, Will, into the world ( The blog I #tbt last week was of little Wills birth 6 months ago, give me a break my only excuse was that I was traveling the world throughout the Spring)

I love capturing the full story of life so for little Will we captured him in the womb, in the hospital and in the home. And i can't express how much I love photographing in the home with families. Especially right after a little one, there is so much new and so much real happening in those first couple months. Its exciting and so worth documenting.  Here is that home session with the Destigiters, when a family of 3 became 4 and all of the love and chaos grew into what it is now.

William D: Fresh 48 hours

So i'm obviously a little behind, somehow I missed posting the birth of our little nephew 6 months ago! I did not forget to blog about his adorable 6 month session (see here) but I'm usuing my TBT to try and catch up today! Here is our fresh 48 hours session with little William D.

You'll probably see a lot of this munchkin in my portfolio because since his birth we have all fallen in love with his kissable cheeks and calm personality.  When he was born my husband and I were given the opportunity to stay with our little niece, then 1, while mom and dad relaxed/labored at the hospital! The next day I showed up with big sister and had to capture the straight up joy and celebration that was the birth of our little nephew! 

Fresh 48 sessions are a new term I'm learning but have been doing for a very long time. I used to work for Bella Baby Photography in the hospital back in Tennessee so those fresh moments after a little one is born have always had a special place in my heart.  

Those 2 days in the Hospital are  a weird middle world between being pregnant and bringing a little one home. The faces of joy, excitement, worry and unknown are all over mom. dad and big sisters face. Its so incredible 6 months later to see these moments and remember those faces. 

** Update** Kate has gotten used to having a brother in the last 6 months, I think she even kind of likes him

William D. : 6 months

Earlier this year we met our new little nephew Will. He is easygoing, drools a lot and has some of the most kissable cheeks in town. I can't even tell you how thankful I am for Chris' family being here in KC with us. They are just such a great source of support to me as I've slowly gotten used to this new place called the Midwest.

So this passed week I just had to take out my camera once again and be "that" auntie and do a sweet six month session with little Will. Happy 1/2 birthday!
