I got to meet this beautiful baby girl one day shy of her three week birthday. I was so excited when I got the email from her Mommy, Erin, telling me that Charlotte Reese had made her debut a little earlier than expected. I couldn’t wait to go meet her! Christmas season babies are so special (I should know since I have one of my own).  Christmas is just so magical already and adding a new baby to it makes it so memorable. Being able to spend this Christmas together as a family of three will be something Erin and Josh will always remember.

When I arrived at their beautiful home in Pepper Pike, Charlotte (Lottie) was sound asleep in her Daddy’s arms.  She’s already got him wrapped around her little finger 🙂 Both Erin and Josh already looked like naturals. Like they’ve been doing this parenting thing their whole lives. Lottie is so lucky to have such wonderful parents. And if I hadn’t seen Erin pregnant with my own eyes, I never would have believed that she just had a baby. She looks amazing!!! 

As you probably know by now, the nursery is one of my favorite places to photograph newborns. Charlotte’s nursery is so beautiful and suits her perfectly. All the little girl outfits Erin has hanging above the changing table REALLY makes me want to have a little girl, just so I can dress her up!  Another thing I love is incorporating sentimental items into my newborn photos. The blanket Charlotte is laying on in the nursery was made by her Grandma just for her. I love that she will be able to look back on these photos and remember her special blanket.

Thank you so much Waldman Family for choosing me as your photographer, I am so grateful to have been able to capture these precious memories for you!
