After photographing this family for years in it’s larger extended group, I was SO excited to learn last fall at their family mini-session that Adam and Megan were going to have a baby!  But the excitement wasn’t nearly as fun as getting to actually see them with her– calm, and low key, and easy, just like they had always been together.  Their two fur babies even love little baby C, and treat her like the sister they’ve ALWAYS had!  I just loved seeing them all together…even in the  midst of renovations in their house, 2 dogs, and busy life– they made it all look so effortless.  They knew her SO well already just a little over a week in, and everyone was so comfortable.  And Cecilia has to be one of the absolute easiest babies to photograph!  She was SO quiet and happy!  Meet sweet Cecilia!!

Look at her smile!! Megan is such a beautiful mama!! Favorite! This little girl is SO lucky to have these two (and her grandparents, cousins, and amazing aunt that I know and adore)!!Megan and Adam, I’m so happy for you all!  Full gallery coming soon!
