It brought me SO much joy to photograph Kristin, David, and their newborn love Miss Ella Grace (side note: isn’t that name just the CUTEST!?). From the very beginning of our newborn session, I could sense just how excited Kristin and David were to be parents. Even despite the typical sleep deprivation that comes with newborn life, they were vibrant and so obviously in love with the family they had created. It was so special for me to see Kristin, David, Ella, and their two dogs all in one big love pile on their bed. Though Ella was only 2 weeks old when I photographed her, it felt like their bond had been formed over years, not mere days.
Ella arrived 3 weeks early, much to the surprise of her parents (who paused the Bachelor to go in for a check at the hospital, fully expecting they’d be back later that night). Kristin aka SUPER MOM still had a FINAL for grad school to complete once they got home from the hospital! Ella’s nursery (and their whole house for that matter) was decorated SO cute- it was both feminine and sophisticated. Yes, I asked Kristin if she would please come decorate my house 😉 Ella seemed to love the spotlight as she managed to not only smile but stay awake the whole time! Congratulations to the Riemersma family, and welcome to the world, little Ella Grace!
Look at that smile!!!!
