Ahhh…I can’t get enough of these photos with our brand new Avery Rose. While the photographer snapped this shot, I remember loving the way her tiny bum fit perfectly into the palm of my hand. And then I kept realizing over and over that she was REALLY here. What a beautiful experience it was to realize she was finally on the outside of my belly. It’s a moment that most pregnant mamas constantly daydream about (especially if they don’t enjoy their pregnancies…#me).
Right after leaving the hospital with our tiny Avery, my friend Emily and brother Spencer both messaged me about a newborn model call that Twig and Olive was hosting for a photographer workshop being held right here in Dallas. Their work is GORGEOUS. They host workshops all throughout the world and we couldn’t believe they were needing a 7 day old baby in Dallas, fitting Avery perfectly. What are the chances of that?!
Emily and I drove to a beautiful venue featuring an enormous barn, The White Sparrow. I dressed up and little Avery got naked. Emily created a stunning pair of ivory rose crowns for Avery and me to wear. Twig and Olive’s Courtney positioned us, took the first photos, and then the photographers snapped away! A bunch of the photographers had flown in town for the workshop but 1 gal recognized me from teaching her Bodypump class at the gym. haha. It was such a great experience and it’s super sweet to have cute memories behind each photo captured of Avery.
