Baby Lawson ● Newborn

I met baby Lawson’s Momma when I reached to her earlier this year for a floral crown to wear at my bohemian birthday soiree. Kristen is the co-owner of The Proper Petal, a local floral arrangement business here in Richmond. You might recall seeing a beautiful floral crown on Erin (one of my fabulous clients!) during her maternity session that they did – completely swoon!! If you want some pretty florals on your Instagram feed, be sure to follow them. When Kristin dropped off the floral crown on my birthday I saw that she too had a cute little baby bump! I was secretly hoping that she would reach out for newborn portraits and I’m so glad that she did!

The Wiley’s are just the sweetest family! They have a beautiful home that is filled with love for their precious newborn son, Lawson. Their golden retriever, Bagley, is such a proud big sister! She was keeping a close watch on me while I got setup for their in-home session to begin. Lawson’s nautical-inspired nursery was absolutely perfect! The fish wall by his crib was my favorite! So many handpicked nursery décor items that I loved capturing for them.

I have to say that this family is a trooper! When I arrived for their session they had gone several days without power (thanks to tropical storm Bonnie!). Thankfully their family is nearby and they’d been staying with them. I reassured them that we could still do their newborn photos in their home because I only work off of natural light anyway – no electricity needed! The warm temperatures in the house are also ideal for a newborn session so we were all set! While we were capturing memories inside, there were contractors and electricians galore scurrying about outside repairing the damaged homes in their neighborhood. Their next door neighbor’s tree was struck by lightning (yikes!!). Some damage was done to Kristen’s home but thankfully no one was hurt. This sweet family was so calm and collected you wouldn’t have known a thing. I’m sure that snuggling their sweet baby boy is all that mattered to them!

Enjoy browsing some favorites! 🙂

Big sister, Bagley!

  • […] The morning of, I scooted over to Avenue 42 Style Studio to get my makeup done by the fabulous Natalie Gordon. She’s the owner of her beautiful studio and she’s been published in Southern Weddings, Style Me Pretty, Richmond Magazine, Richmond Bride Magazine, BRIDES magazine, and more! It’s been almost 4 years since my wedding day when I last got dolled up with having my makeup done so it was time! I’ve never been a guru with makeup – I can take about 5 minutes to get ready in that department – so it was nice to have a professional make me look like a million bucks that day! It was such a relaxing way to start the day and Natalie was so much fun to chat with. While I was there, Kristen with The Proper Petal stopped by to drop off my gorgeous floral crown and florals for my milk bath maternity portraits (more details coming to the blog soon!). Always love seeing Kristen and her precious little boy, Lawson! […]ReplyCancel
