Charlie's First Photo Session

Of course I had to do it! I had a lot of fun taking pictures of my own newborn! Some of the pictures I took when he was six days and some I took when he was one week old. His photo session the first day got cut short because he had a doctor's appointment, but he did such a great job! It was hard to get Charlie and Hannah together, but I'm satisfied with what we ended up with. I had a lot more ideas than I had time for, but I guess that will make for fun photo sessions in the future! Sorry I had to post so many pictures, and I'm sure it's a mother's love, but he is so stinkin' cute! I love this little guy! I feel so lucky to have two great kids! Now the rest of the week will be spent packing up for good. I can't believe I'm really leaving Ohio. Unfortunately we haven't sold our house yet, but we still keep hoping something will work out.

Those turned out so cute! You are such an amazing photographer. I love the one with the beanie on his head and the OSU one. The ones with Hannah turned out great too! Those two year olds certainly give us a run for our money. I love them. Charlie is adorable, it's not just a mother's love.

Congratulations on your new little one! Charlie is so cute! Those pictures you took are amazing! He is precious! Wow! And a ton of dark hair. I can't believe he came at such a crazy time but I know you are so glad to have him! Hopefully all is well and if you are reading this, you've at least survived these past two months and the move! Good luck with everything! Keep in touch!
