I think that my nephew Ryder has been the most long awaited arrival of the season! It seems like forever ago that my sister Kelley found out she was pregnant. The whole family was thrilled about a new baby, so needless to say, we were all very excited to meet him. Kelley was definitely hesitant about the idea of maternity photos, but we all managed to talk her into it. A photo shoot at 7 months pregnant can be a little intimidating, but of course, she looked beautiful.
After her maternity shoot, we were all ready for his arrival. Kelley’s doctor thought that maybe he would arrive before his due date, but he wasn’t ready until 3 days after his scheduled arrival. Even the day Kelley went into labor, we all waited around for hours. Knowing that I wanted to take pictures, she made sure her hair and makeup was done… glamorous even during labor.
After opening gifts, Mikey was tired. Couldn’t resist :)
And finally here!!
And of course, new born portraits! Baby Ryder- 2 weeks old
Plenty more adorable pics to come, but trying to stay on schedule with my editing! Congratulations Kelley, Mike, and big brother Jason on the new addition to the family.
