The Daughertys {family}

Talk about a blast from the past!  I seriously have not seen Laura since high school, so when she emailed me about family photos, I was all over it.  Of course, I stay in close touch with her brother and his family, but I hadn’t had the chance to meet Laura’s family.  So we set a time (very early) and a place (her mother inlaw’s backyard) and got to work.  It may have been a little toasty for 8:30am, but I like to think we had  a great time hanging out. :)

Laura has the same smile I remember from high school and her husband Stephan was so kind.  To see them fawn over their little guy, Connor ?  Jeez… talk about a love fest.  Laura calls Connor her miracle baby – he was born eight weeks early and still so small for being six months old, but he is such a precious little thing.  Big bright eyes, smiles to sound of his momma’s voice – just a sweet, sweet tatertot.  And in dad’s arms, Connor melts into the crook of his arm or against his chest.  These two deserve this miracle baby.  And I feel honored that I got to photograph the three of them together, happy as can be.

I mean, look at this little guy – how can you not fall in love with those big eyes and his little lips?!?

Confession: This is my fave.  I have not stopped starring at it.  I tell myself it’s Connor’s kissy face.  *love it*

I love how comfortable they were together.  It was like I wasn’t even there.  Like they were hanging out in the gazebo after breakfast.

OK, another confession: I love this one a lot too.  Laura and Stephan’s smiles just do me in.  *gah*

Daddy’s with their babies?  And sweet little kisses to little bald heads?  My cup runneth over.

Such a beautiful family.  Such a sweet family.  I left them that morning and smiled all day.  I just couldn’t help myself.
