Venna's Newborn Photos

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

Life was crazy hectic at this point but we just couldn't skip sweet Venna's photoshoot! She wasn't super into but we still snapped some sweet ones! Plus I did most of the same shots as Nora so I love to compare the two (see below).

These were taken when she was 7 days old. 

She was obviously THRILLED to take these :)

My sweet ballerina baby

Love how pensive she is here! 

My two beautiful girls! 

Hospital Visitors

Monday, November 7, 2016

We were lucky to have so many people visit us in the hospital! First Allisa came to take photos, then Brit and Addie with their kiddos (who overlapped with Allisa so she snapped a few photos!), then Jen and family, Cami and family, Matt & Jaymie, Karen & Jedd and Dad and Carol! Phew- Venna is one loved little girl already!

2nd Cousins just a few months apart! But I make little babies and they make chunky babies so they always look far apart for awhile! This set also has the matching names: Gwen & Ven! 
Cutest wild haired 2nd cousins with matching names too! Nora and Cora! 
Aren't they just adorable?!

2 cousins with their 2 girls! 

Thanks for stopping by guys! We love you! 
Not sure which day this was but Nora was still in love with sister! 

Love this photo of Amelia with Venna! 
And Juan and Oscar

Jen and Trey! 
Trey was so cute with her! Adorable!

Grandpa and Mimi did their best to corral Nora while we tried to get discharged 

And Grandpa Wes! Proud Grandpa for sure! 

Thanks friends! We love you all and are so blessed with so much love in our lives! 

Nora Meets Venna Photoshoot

My friend Allisa is a new but amazing photographer! She especially loves birth photos and "Fresh 48" as she calls them- taken in the hospital right after baby is born!

Venna's birth just didn't really accommodate her with timing (I kept laboring and laboring!).We opted for these photos of when Nora met Venna instead and I love that she captured so many precious moments. And I love that I could enjoy watching them together without worrying about snapping photos. What I REALLY WANT is her to follow me around all the time. ha!

So this was the morning after Venna was born on Saturday July 30. Nora spent the night at Jen's house on Friday night and Jason went to get her in the morning while I ate and cleaned up at the hospital. Nora and Jason stopped for donuts and balloons on the way and Jason told her all about her new baby sister.

These photos are real! It's the first time she has seen me in a couple days and her first time laying eyes on Venna and it was definitely love at first sight!

She has her special "Big Sister" shirt on and the hospital gave her a "Big Sister" sticker. Jen also braided her hair into the cutest thing ever!
I got Nora a book (from Venna) and we read for a minute before Jason brought Venna in. 

Proud Daddy! 

She was SO excited! 
My heart!!

Pure sisterly love

My heart nearly burst at this moment!! 
That gaze!!

Inspecting the  hair to see if it's really red! IT IS! 
Tiny baby feet 

Two sisters!! 
Sweet baby Venna (still a little swollen) 
Love this shot

She did NOT want to put her little sister onesie on. ha! 
I want a million of these photos! 
Love this angle too. 

These girls have their Daddy wrapped around their fingers!

Isn't this just a magazine shot? With Nora's gorgeous hair and the colors? 

Thanks for the amazing photos Allisa! If you are in Austin definitely look her up!

And I feel so blessed to have two beautiful girls to call my own!
