This little family moved from Murfreesboro, TN to Manchester, TN a few years ago just like me! I love the traffic in Manchester compared to Murfreesboro, but Murfreesboro has a special place in my heart. It's actually where the majority of my clients come from and where my outdoor sessions take place.
Similarly, they also had a baby in the NICU the first time around and struggled with infertility for the second. We have a lot of similar life events, don't we? My first spent 5 months in the NICU in Nashville and it took us 5ish years to conceive our next. When Kelly reached out for a session to document what she missed the first time, I totally related.
She opted for a newborn studio session in my Manchester studio. Guys, they were seriously the cutest family. Mom had the adorable kindness to her, and it also reflected onto Dad. He showed so much love for her. If you have had a newborn session in the past, you know just how hot it can get. She was sweating up a storm during parent poses and he literally rushed to get her ice water. She couldn't move and he held the straw for her so she could drink it. They are too sweet!
We just had their ordering appointment. They were so happy with their images and had a hard time narrowing it down to their goal. They agreed it was a lot easier with my help since I spot things that they don't.
Thank you to the Beard family for bringing that sweet girl to see me!
