Last November we welcomed a new addition to our GPA family.  She was all of 8.6 pounds and 21 inches.  When Mel first told me she was pregnant we both joked that this would be the most photographed baby ever- and it holds to be true :)  Raye documented Izabella Claire’s birthstory  and I had the privilege of photographing her newborn session.  Due to unexpected events we weren’t able to photograph her til she was 2 months old but by then she had her own personality and was able to smile :)  I met with Mel + Mike at their house and was greeted by their gorgeous Husky, Atreyu.  He is Mel’s first baby and happened to get a little jealous for attention during our shoot.  However, he is so protective of Bella and was so gentle around her.  Bella is so beautiful and her little smile just lit up the room.  I’m so grateful we were able to welcome this little joy into our family.

Bella had bath time and Atreyu got play time :)

Mel + Mike- I’m so incredibly happy for you both and can’t wait to see the young lady she becomes.  Thank you for inviting me along to photograph her journey through life.  I love you both!  xoxo
