Baby Kate {newborn}

I’ve been friends with Emily and Brent for years – FOR YEARS.  And I’ve had the absolute pleasure of photographing them and their boys a few times over the last couple years.  With three young boys, they keep me on my toes, keep me laughing and have energy for days.  But when Brent and Emily announced that they were expecting their fourth, I closed my eyes real tight and started wishing for a little girl.

Throughout the first half of her pregnancy, Emily admitted that this one felt like the three before – she was certain it was a boy.  I really think she was bracing herself for the doctor’s visit where she’d find out the sex of the baby and told herself to expect to hear that it was “another boy.”  But instead the doctor told them it was a girl.  A girl!

I know that my friends were so surprised and happy to hear that their fourth child would be a girl – a girl with three older brothers at that – but I believe that this was the cherry to top their family.  And so Baby Kate was born on October 17th.  I’m completely over the moon for this little lady – I can only imagine how her whole family feels about her.

My favorite.  So sweet to see that little face and momma’s touch.  I love it.

I’m kind of in love with this one too.  Oh Baby Kate… gah.

And yes – she slept through our entire session. :)
