jacob + whitney = ethan!!!

my aunt had her baby this afternoon! his name is ethan and i think he was about 6lbs. he is a doll. adorable, sweet, and brand new. how could anything in the world be more perfect than this? today a new life began in my family. this summer i started realizing how important family is to me. obviously i have always loved my family (immediate and extended) but i am suddenly conscious of how much belonging does for a soul. i am so blessed. i belong to two amazing families, and i love both of them with all my heart.

p.s. in the next couple of weeks i'll be doing a newborn shoot with him. i. can. NOT. wait. isn't he a darling? isn't he amazing?

if every baby was born into love like this, the world would be a significantly better place to be.

Heather, the pictures look really great! Ethan is soooo cute!! Of course I'm totally jealous that you and James got to go see them all in hospital, but I'm glad you were there too!! :D

Heather, your pictures of little Ethan made it almost as good as being there in person. You are a great photographer and the whole family is always so impressed with your talent. Thank you for all the memories you are helping to preserve!
