With everything going on in the last year I did not shoot as many newborns as I typically do and as I would like to, making every single one so enjoyable and special to me. But this little guy would have been so special to me anyways! His parents are one of my past couples and I just adore his whole family so so much! Little Archer was such a perfect and happy baby model (until the very last few minutes, right Taylor?! 😂). He was sweet and sleepy, and just so happy to be held by his parents. Taylor and Cory have moved into the role of mom and dad in a way that looks pretty effortless (even though I’m sure it’s not)– they were so natural and comfortable with their new little guy! I truly just loved seeing it so so much! I’m just so happy for this family, and excited to share some favorites here today!
Isn’t he PRECIOUS?? Taylor, you’re a beautiful mama! Taylor and Cory, thank you so much for trusting me with your little man! Your family is beautiful, and your full gallery is coming your way soon!
