Welcome to the world Miss Charley! The bad news is that life doesn't get any less sleepy, but the good news is your yawn is realllly cute.
I got to share with you Charley's mom, Nola's, fun lifestyle maternity session, and now we all get to gush at sweet baby Charley! As you can tell, she's kind of a big deal. I mentioned previously what a sweet big sister Afton was, and the proof is in the pudding. Sharing goldfish, reading stories, changing her babydoll's diaper, she's really nailing this big sister business. As sweet as Afton was with her new baby sister, dad was even sweeter! 2016 was the year for amazing dads, and Joe was a perfect example of that. He soothed, rocked, swayed, and shushed like a pro, making this one of the easiest newborn sessions I've ever had! It also helped that Charley was a super content little gal.
I absolutely love all the vibrant colors in baby Charley's nursery! It was chock full of unique baby decor, which really made the final images pop. Also, If you have an awesome rug in your home I WILL lay your baby on it for photos. When I saw the polka dot rug in Afton's room at the maternity session, I knew I'd be using it for Charley's photos. But when Nola whipped out the most adorable polka dot romper for baby C, I died.
If you take a peek back at the maternity session photos, you'll see the images we were able to recreate in the newborn session. It's always so much fun to see the bump to baby comparison! Just like the maternity session, Charley's newborn session has some of the sweetest little moments between mom and baby, dad and baby, and of course big sis and little sis. The baby life is a crazy life for sure, but it's precious and oh so fleeting.
