Welcome Veda Kathleen!
Veda Kathleen made her grand entrance into the world on August 6, 2017 at just shy of 8lbs.
We are all so happy to finally meet Veda especially Mommy and Daddy!
Let me tell you a little bit about Veda’s mommy and daddy, also know as Lizzie and Drew. I’ve know Lizzie for over 10 years and she is the most chill, laid back person I’ve ever met. The only time I’ve seen Lizzie all glammed up was at our high school prom. Honestly, she looked like a rock star after 19 hours of Labor!
If I had to define Lizzie in three words they would be kind, calm, and caring. She’s always in comfy clothes and smiling. Fun Fact: Lizzie introduced me to The Office. I remember watching The Dundies episode with her in high school and thinking to myself “I don’t get it maybe she’s a little weird”. Little did I know, my future husband would be obsessed with The Office and therefore, I have seen every episode multiple times. I now believe it’s a great show and am sad it’s over. Needless to say, Lizzie is a good influence (and a little psychic?). Lizzie loves sarcastic humor which makes Drew perfect for her. In the time I’ve gotten to know Drew, I am really fond of the way he cares for Lizzie and Veda. I can tell he loves them both so much.
I love the interaction between Veda and her daddy. It’s amazing how a newborn baby can recognize their mom and dad by their voice.
As I was taking these photos, I couldn’t help but think how amazing the female body is, to be able to create life.
“Come stop your crying
It will be alright
Just take my hand
And hold it tight
I will protect you
From all around you
I will be here
Don’t you cry
For one so small,
You seem so strong
My arms will hold you,
Keep you safe and warm
This bond between us
Can’t be broken
I will be here
Don’t you cry” -Phil Collins said it best.
The natural smile that appears on Lizzie’s face as she looks down at her baby. 😍
I was so honored and humbled to be asked to take Veda’s newborn photos. Thank you Lizzie and Drew! It was a wonderful experience! I look forward to photographing her milestones!
