Happy New Year friends!  I meant to share this beautiful family before Christmas but life got too busy!  I met Courtney and Zach when I photographed their wedding a few years ago, and now they have a beautiful little baby girl.  I think this was one of my favorite newborn sessions ever, due to the way these two doted and laughed over their precious daughter.  I hope that you will be able to see it too in these pictures.

After I shot this photo, a friend of mine shared that it was a tradition in their family to lay underneath the Christmas tree and look at the lights.  That made me love this one, even though at the time, I thought it might not make sense.  Maybe baby Charlotte will make a tradition of laying under the tree too.
