I love everything about this little guy- his tiny toes, the way his forehead wrinkles up when he follows my camera, the meaning behind his name and of course, his awesome parents!  Raye and I photographed Ashlyn + Bruce’s wedding last year on her family farm and two weeks ago I found myself turning left onto their lane and coasting up to the farm house.  I couldn’t wait to meet Sullie James, who was born on February 17th at 6:48 PM and weighed in at 7 pounds and 6 ounces.  Sullie is the name of Bruce’s friend and mentor from when he was little and is a very important person in their lives.  I think it is so wonderful to honor that!  When I walked in I was greeted by the fur babies, Hunter + Chase. :)  These pups have been in our studio before for our annual Santa Paws event and were just as energetic as ever!  I also couldn’t wait to see how Ashlyn + Bruce decorated the nursery.  I knew from how she put everything together for the wedding and from her boutique (Lark on the Boulevard) that Ashlyn definitely has a creative eye and wanted to see how Sullie’s room turned out.  With help from her mother, Ashlyn created the headboard and panels above the windows and is going to decorate the walls with her father’s bow + arrows from his Boy Scout days.  Sullie’s yawns are so adorable and he was even cute when he took time for a nap.  I’m so happy for you both and love baby Sullie!  I can’t wait to see him again! :)
