I honestly feel like I need to have my camera on me at all times when with Ashley and Chris. Why? Well because these two are full of surprises and special moments! I have had the absolute pleasure of capturing some pretty big announcements and beautiful memories for this sweet couple over the past year. However, I think we all would agree, this one takes the cake.
Welcome to the world, Austin Keats! I remember seeing Ashley post the exciting news a few weeks ago that their sweet baby boy had made his debut. I came running down the stairs to tell my husband. Having gone through this experience myself, nothing brings me joy like seeing friends of mine sharing in that incredible happiness. The first time I got to hold Keats my eyes instantly welled up. He is so stinkin’ cute and the perfect blend of his mommy and daddy.
I have known Ashley for over 8 years and always thought she had motherly qualities about her. I remember those first few weeks clear as day. Exhaustion like you’ve never experienced. Physical and hormonal changes you never could have prepared for. And love. A whole lot of “I love my baby so much it hurts” kind of love. However, Ashley had such a gracefulness about her. She looked rested, peaceful and in absolute new-mommy bliss. Motherhood looks so good on her!
I had a wonderful morning session in their home. Getting to capture those tender moments with Ashley and Chris holding their baby boy in their arms gives my heart so much joy. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite moments and get all the baby fever I certainly did from this session!!
