Jack + Ellie – Newborn Session

When we grow up, we want to be Erin + Mark. That's what Mike and I said to each other after getting to know our neighbors down the hall.

Jack totally owned the big brother role and I can already envision these two joking around, wrestling, and all the other things brothers do that will probably drive their mom, Carolyn, crazy.

But in this shoot, those quiet, candid moments were my favorite. Read more
