Katie & Joe | Bayview Newborn Session

Featuring Katie, Joe & baby Grace’s Bayview newborn session today, and I’m so excited to share these images with you!

Katie and I worked at the VA together for a short time before I left to be with my boys! It was such a blast to hang out with her and Joe last week and get to know them better! I learned about their families, their dating history (high school sweethearts….I even got to see their prom pictures 😉 ), and of course the story of how baby Grace entered the world!

Grace was named after her great grandmother (scroll through to see the sweetest picture of her alongside her great grandma’s ring)! Katie even mentioned that at the hospital where she delivered that she ran into her grandma’s old nurse! How amazing is that?!

Katie & Joe – thank you so much for welcoming me into your home! Thank you for trusting me with capturing some of these moments during Grace’s first days of life! She is SO sweet and you guys will be the best parents!
