Lifestyle Newborn Session Emily and Brit just went from being parents of one to parents of two. At their lifestyle newborn session, the first thing I asked Emily was so how crazy is it really??? as I am also about to enter that phase of life. So far so good was her initial response. Then, she told me a really hilarious story that […]
