Welcome Clara Elizabeth

Brand new babies (sigh)... what could be better? I went to high school with both Brad and Mollie and was absolutely thrilled to be able to photograph their tiniest addition. Clara is the sweetest little angel.


Clara let me off easy and gave Daddy all the mess :) I just had to rinse out a blanket from a small clear wet spot. Brad got a bit more than he bargained for probably just seconds after this image below was taken. Although, I felt pretty good about planning ahead and throwing an old towel on the carpet!

She is just itty bitty, which makes her that much more fun to photograph.


I think I see the tiniest bit of a smirk... could it be?

What a fun morning. This tiny little babe is already pretty spunky and knows just what she wants. I would occasionally try to move her hands away from her face. Even though she was sleeping, she let out a scream letting me know that was unacceptable for her. Brad tried to say she got that feisty spirit from Mom. But I think she gets a heavy dose from both sides :) I'm glad I'll get to watch this little girl grow up. Welcome to the world sweet Clara Elizabeth.
