Ellen- Newborn

Oct 4

Nearly two years ago, I took some newborn shots of a handsome dark-haired boy named Ethan. This past week, I was back at Ethan’s house taking his little sister, Ellen’s, first portraits!
Ellen decided to surprise her family with a three week early arrival and a labor so fast that her dad made it to the delivery room a couple pushes before she entered the world. Weighing in at 5lbs. 12 oz., she’s starting off life with triple the hair my husband has on his head.
So feast your eyes on the tiny beauty that is “Ellen”…
With 25 different comments on this post, Ellen’s parents will get to choose a free 5×7. So leave them some blog love!
