the thomas family

welcome coralee!

I had the incredible pleasure of meeting this lovely little lady when she was just a day old. I met my good friends Tyler and Mandy (remember their awesome maternity session?) at the hospital to ooh and ahh over their sweet Coralee Abel as I snapped some photos. Both times I have seen her now, she’s earned the Excellent Baby Award, and as you can see…she’s perfect.
15_09_thomas_01 15_09_thomas_02 I loved capturing all the little hospital details like the footprint swaddle, the bassinet, wristbands and baby’s ankle bands. It will be crazy for them to look back on the few days they spent there getting to know their girl and remember all the little things. 15_09_thomas_03 15_09_thomas_04 A few days later, when I showed up for their in-home newborn session, Coralee was of course, happy and cooperative and Mandy told me she went a little “overboard” with cute fabrics, outfits and even a floral crown to play with for the session. I was in love. 🙂15_09_thomas_05 15_09_thomas_06 New parents + new babies = the best. 15_09_thomas_08 15_09_thomas_09 15_09_thomas_10 15_09_thomas_11 Mandy, you are a natural mom and a beauty. I love watching you with Coralee.15_09_thomas_12 And Tyler, I’ve said it before, but I love seeing you as a dad. I can’t wait to see the relationship you’ll have with her and all that she’ll put up with from you. 😉 15_09_thomas_13 15_09_thomas_14 15_09_thomas_15 15_09_thomas_16 One of my favorites. I can’t handle that fluffy pink bundle. 15_09_thomas_17 15_09_thomas_18 15_09_thomas_19 15_09_thomas_20 My other favorite. We were dying over her sweetness when Mandy put the crown on her. I mean, she doesn’t need it to be cute, but I wouldn’t be mad if she wore it everyday. 😀 15_09_thomas_21 Sweet Coralee, you were born to the best parents and you’re made of pure love. Such a treat to meet you and catch these first few glimpses of such beauty. You stay perfect, ok?15_09_thomas_22
