Raleigh Parker: Newborn Photo Session

Well, Raleigh is officially 3 months old now (on 11.9.15). It is absolutely unbelievable to look back on these photos taken when he was just 12 days old. He has already grown and changed so much. We are so excited to continue getting to know his precious personality and see him grow into a little boy, but goodness..I wish he could stay small with the most adorable little grins and itty bitty toes.

We absolutely adore Joy and Ryan of Joy Davis Photography. They photographed our engagement photos and wedding, and we knew that they would be the ones to do our newborn shoot. They are amazing! Newborn shoots are no easy task--they take an enormous amount of patience, skill, and certainly a sense of humor (because Raleigh pooped on the props and Joy no less than three separate times).

Oh my goodness, that little baby yawn!

After a couple hours napping and a truck ride to a little patch of woods, this little man decided he was no longer going to cooperate by keeping his hands swaddled and eyes closed, but we could hardly blame him.

This man! Gosh, he is such an amazing father to our little babe. I am so thankful for him and for everything that he does for our little family.

I was sweaty and exhausted, but I still love this sweet moment.
