Lauren worked very hard bringing sweet Violet to the world. Overdue at 41 weeks and 2 days, Lauren and Kyle headed to the hospital to be induced that evening. Lauren started contracting on her own and labored all the following day. Baby Violet was born at 11:21pm on February 7th, 2017. Lauren's birthday is February 8th and she wanted Violet to have her own special day. She got baby girl out just in the nick of time!! I had the honor of coming up the day after she was born to photograph Violet and her family before she was even 24 hours new. We spent some time just photographing Lauren, Kyle, and Violet. They are the most precious new parents. They were so tender and gentle with Violet and every movement she made dazzled her new parents. Afterwards, we welcomed family to join us and the happy crowd flooded in. Lots of smiles, laughs, baby cuddles, and pictures later, I snuck away to let this sweet family enjoy their brand new baby girl. I can't wait to meet with the Cannadays in a few weeks for their newborn lifestyle session!
