Baby Lucas - Kent Island | Maryland

It's always really incredible to see the friends I've had since childhood have kids of their own. Alyssa is a bit more special - I've watched her go from being the stellar big sister of four to a  super rockin' mother, not that I expected anything less. She and William welcome baby Lucas on June 22nd, and we finally got a chance for a session at the end of August.

Lucas has inherited his parents' love of video games and galaxies far, far away - his nursery in their new home is full of bright characters, colors, and other fantasy finds.

Hey! Lucas! Wanna get in some adorable knitted hats and ham it up? "Sure!"

"Wait. Okay, I'm done. This is silly." 

"No. Seriously. Take me out of this getup. Now. Don't make me throw a bird.


Okay, but back to it! We had phenominally mild weather, so we decided to shoot outside - a rare opportunity with new little ones!


The natural light was so stellar - I love how the tree canopy overhead reflected in those big ol' blues and how super smiley Lucas was.

Congratulations to William and Alyssa on their beautiful, healthy little dude. I can't wait to watch Lucas grow! xomj
