Her days have officially turned into months. 3 to be exact….but these photos take her back to 1. They were shot by my good friend and uber talented photographer, miss SARAH SHREVES
It’s funny how one day I am a kid, and the next I am a mother…..and how quick that transition from childhood to adulthood really feels. I remember my childhood so vividly, it’s amazing to think how long it has really been since those playground days. I can still picture my mom at that time….playing with my sisters and I, reading us stories and teaching us all about the world. Now it’s my turn. Seeing Rylee grow makes me think so much about life….it’s fragility…..and really, it’s wonder. How intricately and thoughtfully we were created and how amazing the human body is. It blows my mind every time I look at Rylee’s itty bitty hands and feet, knowing they will one day grow to be as big as my own. And it makes me so incredibly thankful for my own mom and the part she has played in my life. She has taught me what it means to love unconditionally and to give sacrificially. I have realized there is nothing bigger than the love a mother has for her children. I had heard that many times before, but I don’t think it’s something I fully grasped until I became a mother myself.
We hoped to capture Rylee with a few of those sweet sleeping baby photos I love so much, but she wasn’t having it. She was wide eyed and alert the whole time, so we just went with it. A few old suitcases, a sheepskin rug and a my favorite ivory blanket from Scotland (gifted from Dear Darling) made the perfect props! Ohhh…if only baby knew how hard we worked to get a few good photos of her! ha. Thankful to have these marking her one month birthday.
You can find this hand knit diaper cover and others similar over at etsy shop, Titch.
