I am so absolutely honored to know Devan and Kelci. Thankfully, Devan’s sister found me somewhere along the way to photograph her wedding. After I finished her engagement photos, Kelci contacted me to shoot their Christmas pictures that year. I got to meet their sweet cockapoo, Coors. Little did we know that they would be moving to California shortly after, so for mother’s day 2015, they went in together and bought a family session for Devan’s mom with all the kiddos and her before they moved acrossed the country. Then another little thing happened when Devan and Kelci announced they were pregnant and coming back to Knoxville to be close to family! I got to shoot their maternity session at my house.. which was SO much fun… and now I’m getting to share with you sweet sweet newborn pictures of their little Lillian Kate! She was only 5.5 lbs at this newborn session (full term too), by far the smallest newborn I’ve ever photographed. She was so sweet and so precious. We learned the hard way that it’s harder for her to fall asleep when there’s a stranger in the room and she’s not super fond of laying on her stomach! The couple photos that you see below of her on her stomach was directly after the second feeding of the session in hopes to fill her belly up and make her super tired. It was so awesome¬†to see Kelci and Devan in parent mode as they worked together to calm her down, get her to sleep, change her clothes… AND might I add that Lillian is literally the first newborn to not pee or poop on any of my blankets OR me! If you haven’t heard about the last newborn session + pee event, you can read about it on my 2015 favorite portraits post, or the actual newborn post.
