Ollie Has His First Photo Shoot

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I'm so lucky to have an older sister who is such an amazing photographer! The week after Creed was born, Candice and her family drove up to Columbus from Louisville just to do a newborn photo shoot for us. I thought we wouldn't be able to work it out for Oliver, but after they set the date for me to be induced, Candice found a great price to fly in from San Antonio and a plan was hatched. She flew in Saturday morning and we had her all to ourselves for four days.

I'm so happy with the pictures that she took of Ollie! Of course I have to share them.
The hat that Ollie is wearing is made by my friend Jessica, who sells them in her Etsy shop and she takes custom orders in case you need one too.









You have to love the titles Candice chose to stack underneath him!

I know a few of you have asked when Candice will be teaching her next online digital SLR photography class and registration is about to open so here's a link.

Gorgeous photos... I live in San Antonio!!! It's always so amazing to see how small they were when they're newborn. They change so quickly that it's hard to remember.

Oh wow - love those book shots!

Newborn boys always remind me of little old men, my little one was so wrinkly and wise looking. It won't be long till you're running round after two of them!
