Because they are only small for like a day


This third one…she’s going to be either a) my biggest troublemaker or b) my calm, cool and collected go with the flow one. It’s still up in the air.

But, either way, she’s not going to be tiny forever. In fact, at the doctor just this week, she was already 10 pounds with clothes on! Our oldest was only 13 pounds at 6 months!

Because they only stay small for like the blink of an eye, I jump at pretty much any chance for an awesome photographer to capture her smallness (everybody does a better job than me!). Plus, everybody captures them in their own unique way. I love seeing my girls through another person’s eyes.

So when Atlanta area family photographer Kate T. Parker contacted me to snap some pictures of my girly girls, I had to say yes. Especially after I looked at her portfolio of newborn pictures and more. They are so unique and different than what I had seen before. I’ll let the pictures do the talking…well, I have to say a little. These are all natural light in my house. The same house that I have the worst time getting pictures with natural light without them being super yellow.

See my sweet baby girl? Sleeping with her mouth all open? We call that “catching flies.” Fortunately, she hasn’t caught any yet.

And, these three? Totally got all of their personalities. #1 sort of in the moment, but distracted by something. #2 messing with her baby sister and totally engulfed in her. #3 not too happy that they are messing with her.

Sweet newborn sleep. All by herself. Looking oh, so tiny.

A moment captured snuggling with mommy. Just me and my littlest.

And, this one. Kills me. So big. So grown up. How did she get here…and those freckles and that gap. Totally a mini-me.

And, number 2? Showing off her bed. She sure likes people to know about it…why can’t she go to sleep in it without yelling for us to get her something every two seconds?

Calming. Shushing. Drifting.

This makes my house look so glamourous. I assure you, it isn’t! Look at that hand flipped out, just so. Miss Personality.

Oh, the squished up, cuddliness that is newborn. I swear she’s already a million times bigger than this picture.

These tiny feet. Ten perfect toes. So very, very very blessed.

Check out kate t. parker photography. If you participate in the I <3 Faces challenges, you’ve probably seen some of her work…and seen that she’s won a couple times, too.

Kate captured our girls just being…she followed the older ones around the house and let them give her a tour of their room and just snapped away. I couldn’t be happier.

I’m linking up here.  Go and visit their Wordful and Wordless Wednesdays.


*Kate came to my house and took these pictures. All thoughts are my own. I’m not easily influenced, either!
