I can’t think of a more relaxing way to start off a home session than sitting by a crackling fireplace, with a sleepy babe in your arms. This was the scene I walked into when I arrived at the Kearns home earlier this week for Baby Emmet’s lifestyle newborn session, and I knew this was going to be a good one! Megan and Lance welcomed this sweet boy into their world and it’s easy to see that they are just a little over-the-moon for this guy :) We spent the afternoon indulging in baby snuggles and oohing and ahhing over this wide eyed little wonder! Emmet spent most of his time in front of the camera with his eyes open, taking it all in! Only at the very end did he get a little sleepy! I love when babies open their eyes for sessions though, I think we got a little peek at his sweet personality :) He’s got cheeks you just wanna pinch, and it looks like Emmet is going to be a redhead like his daddy!
Megan and Lance met back in college at Texas Christian University, and Texas has a special place in their heart. Megan is from the Lone Star State, and knew she wanted to pay homage to her roots by incorporating her home into the decor of the nursery. I should also mention that Megan is an interior designer, so of course every inch of the Kearns home is just beautiful! Her creativity definitely came to life in Emmet’s nursery! A beautiful photograph of her family’s ranch in Texas hangs over Emmet’s crib, and a mobile hanging overhead has handwritten words on cut out cacti from friends and family, telling Emmet just how loved and special he is. The personal touches that Lance and Megan added to Emmet’s room are awesome, with many stories woven into the details. And since Megan and Lance met at TCU, their mascot the Frog is a big part of the nursery as well!
Enjoy a glimpse into my afternoon with the Kearns family! Congratulations to you Lance and Megan, Emmet is simply perfect! It was an honor to capture this milestone for your family!
Big brother, Tank! He’s not too sure about the new addition just yet.
The not-so-calm-and-quiet moments with a newborn are memorable too :)
Look at that red hair!
Emmet looooved staring at his beautiful mama!
Congratulations, Kearns family!
