Grace and Matthew live in the previous home of Grace's Grandfather. A very special place to bring their new baby boy home. Francis was one week old during his newborn shoot and decided that he didn't want to miss one. single. thing. He hardly slept at all, already ready to meet the great big world.
We decided to skip the sleepy snuggle shots and went right in for his bright blue eyes. Grace and Mathew enjoy the color blue (one of their wedding color's), and dressed baby Francis in the sweetest navy Ralph Lauren sleeper. Grace, one week after giving birth lets remember, wore a gorgeous blue lace dress. She reminded me of Princess Kate leaving the hospital, and made me question, "Did you even have a baby?!"
Needless to say, these three were one for the books and I could not have enjoyed my morning with them more. I can't wait to watch baby Francis grow. Grace's grandfather landscaped their yard so beautifully, it will be a wonderful place for a little boy to go on grand adventures. Thank you for letting me photograph your growing family Grace and Matthew.
