Baby Matthew-10 Days Old

I have been so incredibly excited about these pictures. I can't even begin to tell you.....there are several great reasons about why I am so excited.
1-Jaime is my best friend from college-she was my matron of honor in our wedding. She was my first friend that I met at MTSU and proved to be one of THE best friends a girl could ever have. I could go on and on about all of the reasons she's so great, but you want to see pictures......
2-Jaime and Danny are THE sweetest parents. The bond they have and the bond they now share with sweet Matthew is very evident to anyone around them.
3-Matthew is such a doll! He was so perfect during our session. He only cried when Jaime changed his diaper and who blames him?
4-I got two new lenses last week and had them shipped so I would have them just for this session. And I am SO glad I did. I told Jaime, "With that baby and these lenses, we are going to have great pictures!" And I think we do....I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

When we first arrived, Matthew was asleep in his cradle by the window. I hugged Jaime and started snapping away in case he woke up. Danny assured me I didn't have to be in a hurry. Apparently he's a good sleeper!


After we moved him around a bit, he woke up and decided it was time to eat.


Mrs. Jeanette, Jaime's mom, had to get some video action during our session!

This next little series is my FAVORITE from our visit.

First family portrait
Danny is so sweet with Matthew.

This is one of my favorites from the day as well.
Jaime and Danny, thank you for letting us roll into your house in such a hurry! We decided 15 1/2 hours on the road in one weekend is TOO much, but we were so thankful to get to squeeze in some time to visit with you.
We love you so much!
Congratulations on your sweet boy!
Enjoy your slideshow.

Denise,
You look so natural holding little Matthew. You need one of your own!
