I know I always say this, but I just LOVE Fresh 48 sessions.  The newness, the details, the newborn smell, seeing the parents so in love with their newest family member, it just gets me every time.

I was thrilled when I got the email from this Mom-to-be asking me to photograph her new arrival and super excited when I found out that Candice and her husband, Matt, had decided to be surprised with the sex of their baby.  I just love when couples do this, it’s one of the best surprises life has to offer:)   I couldn’t wait to get my camera on this little guy when I got the text that they had welcomed a baby boy named Avery.

So the next afternoon, I packed up my gear and headed up to Lakewood Hospital to meet their little one. Walking up to the hospital, not only did I get a little nostalgic, since I had my first son there as well, but I was stopped in my tracks when I saw “Avery” written in chalk on the sidewalk.  Of course I thought that Mom or Dad had written it there, but after talking to them during our session, I found out it wasn’t either one of them.  How’s that for a sign that they picked the right name:)  By the way, they picked Avery’s name after the hall where they first met at college.  How cool is that?! I just love when names have special meaning:)  And check out his adorable personalized hospital hat, such a cool little detail!

Congratulations, Candice and Matt, on your new tiny human, I’m so glad I was able to come meet him.  He is absolutely adorable and has the most amazing lips on a newborn I’ve ever seen (check them out below, they really are amazing!).  I can’t wait to do his In Home Newborn session coming up soon!  I’m excited to see how much he’s grown and changed already:)
