Avery. A little bundle of awesome. – sc newborn photographer

I can’t believe I’m writing this post. It seems like just yesterday that I was writing a post to introduce Hudson to the world and here I am writing to introduce our sweet little Avery. Our perfect little princess. Our second child. What?!! I’m a mother of CHILDREN. Like, as in more than one! I have KIDS. Wow.

The last [almost] two years with Hudson have been amazing and have flown by. We try to make a conscious effort to enjoy each moment, even the hard ones, because these moments don’t last forever. I don’t ever want to forget what he smells like, what his hugs and kisses feel like, what it’s like to have him say “uv mama” (translation: love mama). And I feel the same way about Avery. I don’t want to forget how soft her hair is or how it feels to have her grip my finger in her tiny little hand. Or how precious it is to see her father, my wonderful husband, be unbelievably head over heels in love with his little girl. I don’t want to forget how little she looks in his arms. I don’t want one tiny little piece of this to fade from my memory! So I cling to each moment. I try to smile through the sleepless nights, because all too soon I’ll be wishing for them back. And of course, I take a lot of pictures. It’s these moments with my own children that make me believe in my job. I believe that what I do is important, because I’d be devastated if I didn’t have four million pictures of my beautiful children to refresh my memory of all those things I so do not want to forget.

All that said, it makes me so happy to introduce precious little Avery. Born on January 25th. Thank you to all of you who prayed for her through my pregnancy. She stayed put until 39 weeks! Praise God for a healthy little baby girl…who happens to be ridiculously cute. :) We are so blessed.

Baby toes!

She crosses her ankles like this all the time – so cute!

I love that smile :)

Too much. Just way too much beautifulness. (It’s totally a word….maybe.)

Me and my sweet girl.

I adore this one. But then again, I adore them all.

Ha! This expression is great! :)

    These are absolutely beautiful pictures!!! She is so precious! I love ALL of them! But the ones I LOVE the most are Avery smiling as Tyler is holding her, Avery on your shoulder and Avery in Tyler’s hand. I’m so glad you are a photographer since we won’t be able to see her till May at least we can see her in awesome pictures! Thank you!
