Newborn Photographer: My Sweet Niece ~Maelyn Beth~

July 22nd was a big day in my family! 
My mom celebrated her birthday,
My sister-in-law Bethany had her baby boy Sawyer
and my little sister Melanie had her baby girl Maelyn!

You can read Sawyer's birth story here
and Melanie's birth story here.

I traveled down to New Jersey to see Melanie yesterday afternoon, and prepared for
Maelyn's first (of many) big photo shoots!

She was not a fan of being naked, so we had to move on to plan b.
Sometimes, with newborn photoraphy, there are a lot of plan b's. 
And plan c's for that matter!

I did not mind the fact that I spent the majority of this session holding and snuggling my sweet niece...I'm pretty much her favorite auntie.

Here are a few of my favorite from today.

 Big brother Callen was a perfect little angel to pose for me!

 My niece Brianna made this gorgeous quilt for Maelyn! It looks amazing in the nursery!

I am so thankful that Adam and the boys were ok with me leaving them for a couple of days.
I am so happy that I have been blessed with amazing siblings and amazing nieces and nephews.
I take my job as auntie very seriously. 
I want all my nieces and nephews to have an aunt they can talk to, laugh with, be friends with...always.
and I am so grateful that I have sisters, a brother, sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws that I know are there for my kids as well. Backing me up, supporting them, and keeping our family close.

I can't wait to watch you grow up sweet Maelyn!
