She is probably going to be thoroughly embarrassed by all the praise I am about to heap on her, but nonetheless:
This mama oozes love for her family out of every bit of her being.
You can see it in every image. It is woven throughout their entire slideshow. The way she looks at her husband, her parents, her eldest child, and her brand new daughter...
It shows in her generous smiles; in the look of contentment she has in her role as mother of two, in the way she still breathes in the smell of her toddler son's hair.
She is one of the most beautiful women I know inside and out, and I was so, so honored to be there to capture these once in a lifetime moments. Enjoy these images from the birth of Emerson Kate!
