SUTTON: NEWBORN

I love love love this family. Back in 2011, I shot Kristin & Reed's wedding and this week I got to photograph their new bundle of joy. They welcomed their son, Sutton Wells, on March 28th. I LOVE watching families grow and feel extremely privileged to capture special moments in time for them. This particular shoot was very emotional for me, because it'll be a few short weeks until we meet our baby! From the very first snap of the session, I was able to recognize in Kristin & Reed the pride and love in their faces. It was so perfect. And y'all, I was smitten with Sutton. He's such a sweet little man! A little technical note: because Reed & Kristin's house is full of dreamy neutrals, I mixed up my editing a bit and went for a more "film" look. I'm happy with the result! Enjoy Sutton at 12 days old (and don't miss Gaddy, his protective older brother). : )
