Lydia's Newborn Session

September is a month that I have been patiently (okay, so not so patiently) waiting to arrive. I didn't schedule anything during the entire month because I didn't want to miss a very big day that I knew would sneak up and surprise me.

I am blessed to have a couple very close friends whom I consider sisters. Cora is one of those. You may remember some photos from her maternity session a few weeks ago where I mentioned her son Landon calls me "auntie"... Well, this auntie was VERY anxious to have a new little niece :o)

Cora & her family live back in Oklahoma, so I knew that making it there in time for Lydia's delivery would be a challenge. When would she go into labor? How much notice would her body give her before Lydia entered the world? Would I be able to find a flight quick enough? It was very important to me to make my best effort to be there to welcome her into this world. Through God's divine timing, Cora and I were chatting one Wednesday night & decided I should hop on a plane the next morning... Just incase. I arrived in Tulsa Thursday at 11am.... Cora's water broke at 5pm & Lydia was born at 5am on Friday. Thanks, God for that blessing! It was SO amazing. I was able to spend the next 7 days helping Cora & her family out & tending to little Lydia's every need.... Well, almost every need. Couldn't really help in the feeding department if you know what I mean :o)

Of COURSE lots of photos had to be taken during this amazing time & I wanted to share a few with you. I still have sessions to blog from before this trip, but I just had to show of my new little friend. Her auntie is very proud :o)

Beautiful Cora & her baby girl (finally!)


The best big brother a girl could ask for...

Sweet moments with daddy...

My absolute favorite...
