Five days new. Baby Ryan Andrew, as his older sister Emily insists on calling him, is just 5 days old. I couldn't be more excited for this wonderful family! I started talking to Jamie via e-mail a few months ago and finally had the pleasure to meet them last month for her South Park maternity photos (if you haven't checked out that blog post, you seriously have to see how glowing this gorgeous family is). I instantly knew we were a great match and couldn't wait for little Ryan Andrew to get here!
A week before her due date, Jamie messaged me to let me know Ryan Andrew had his own schedule and that he arrived shortly after midnight on a warm May night. The labor was quick (and hopefully painless) and only after 2 quick pushes, he arrived!
I was excited to do an intimate newborn photo session in the comfort of their home. After a rough night, Jamie and her family felt at ease being comfortable at home. Ryan Andrew was a fantastic baby to photograph and stayed awake most of the time! He's one strong little man (did you see that one photo of him trying to flex already?) and already lifting his head up!
I loved Ryan Andrew's expressions! He was full of smiles, waves, and little baby coos. I'm so happy to share these photos and I'm so glad that I met this wonderful family! Congratulations on a happy and healthy little boy, and I wish your family a safe journey as you move down South!
