wpshoots // a mini stroll in the park

About two years ago, I had a family reach out about doing a mini-session at the National Cathedral. They had a new wee one, he wore a jacket with bear ears on the hood, and he was all smiles. Fast forward to this fall and I got the great opportunity to hang out with this family again (and wee one #2 who recently arrived). I love being able to see new family members join and to watch the littles grow up year after year.

wpshoots // little miss clara jo

Little Miss Clara is the little sister to Everett. I was super excited to be able to spend a some time with the now family of four. Clara is an adorable, cuddly, little girl who pretty much rocked her first photo op, that is, before she christened mom and dad’s bed with a little puddle of her own.

wpshoots // little mister connor

This is Connor. Connor spent 98% of his newborn session asleep. Like, very very asleep. I should note that said 98% of the time was from the second I walked in the door till I was just about to walk out. And finally, only then did he grace us with a little bit of awake/snuggle time. I wish Connor luck in deciding if he likes Notre Dame (Mom’s alma mater) or UVA (Dad’s Alma Mater) more…also, I hope for his sake he never switches baseball team allegiances from the Red Sox to the Nationals, because his parents might not be so okay with that. (Go, Nats!) :)
