It was a Sunday afternoon. I was finishing my prep before heading out to do maternity photos of one of my best friends. I glanced at my phone to check the time and noticed a couple missed texts from her. Everything’s ok, we’re just headed to the doctor to be sure! Everything was fine and we decided we would reschedule for a different day that week. Then a couple days letter THE text came. We’re headed to the hospital to meet our little girl! My heart skipped a beat and it all finally felt real. Bre was going to be a mom! The rest of the day was filled with frantic texts between our group of friends. What’s going on, she’s coming so early! What time are you going up? Should we go up? What food are we bringing?! That night we went up to the hospital to show our support and wait. After passing the time snacking on banana chips and watching NCIS episodes in the waiting room, Bre’s mom finally came out with the camera. We gathered round and stared at the little LCD screen showing the first images of Elliana. Born at 11:01 pm 2/28/12 5lbs 10oz and absolutely adorable. We gave them time to be together and came back to visit. Here a few favorites from that morning with sweet Ellie!
Look at all of her hair!
Wide awake and so serious!
I can’t wait to share her newborn photos from the studio with you tomorrow!
