Family: Baby Ellie and Crew
Some familiar faces here! Just a few months ago I went deep into the cornfields of Illinois to meet and photograph the Nicholas family pre-baby E’s arrival and here she is at 5 weeks.
To be perfectly honest I’m not super familiar with milestones for babies. I have a general idea of things like sitting up and walking but besides that it’s just a guess for me. But I had no problem being able to tell that Ellie is a super baby! The entire time she was awake she made and maintained eye contact even as I moved around the room. She’s so alert and rolls over all by herself. Scott and Hannah, watch out, at this rate she’ll be walking in a month ;)
And of course we can’t forget Reese (although I doubt she’d ever let us!) Although she’s still a little camera shy, Reese has such a vibrant personality. Typical toddler style, we played 5+ different pretend games, kept popcorn handy, and had a quick break to regroup with Doc McStuffins. In home sessions really are the best for toddlers and any kids who are more comfortable in a familiar place and may need a few minutes without a camera in their face.
As you can see, Hannah’s sense of style is impeccable. Somehow with a toddler AND newborn their home is still Pinterest worthy. The gorgeous master bed is a custom piece from her parent’s local shop More to a Door and it is seriously so perfect for their home (and has built in storage!) It was such a delight to meet Ellie. Congratulations Nicholas crew, you have not one but 2 gorgeous girls on your hands!
