I don't normally post many family or newborn shoots on the blog, but I have to make an exception for this little bundle because she's my niece and I just love her to pieces already!!! :D
Everyone, meet Eleanor Mackenzie! Her first name means "bright shining one" and her middle name means "born of fire." She is Dave's sister's new daughter, 18 days old! Dave and I were both so excited to meet her and I was SO excited to photograph her! I have been photographing more boys lately (don't get me wrong, they're adorable) but the girly girl inside of me was really looking forward to being able to use flowers and ribbons and lace :) We actually found out that we were going to have a new niece/nephew at our wedding reception when we read the card from his sister and brother-in-law that was signed "Love Beth, Michael, Gwen, and baby" :) Awesome wedding gift right!
I have always loved watching Dave with Gwen (Eleanor's older sister) and watching him hold and love on this little babe totally melts my heart. Gwen absolutely adores her Uncle David and I know that Elle will feel the same.
I am so blessed to be a part of this sweet family and am so excited to now have TWO adorable nieces to play with and watch grow!
I hope all of this smooshy, flowery, precious swaddled cuteness brings some happiness to your rainy Friday :)
