Baby Willa

Two years ago I photographed Mark & Ashley’s wedding in Mystic, CT (See Part 1 and Part 2!). When I photographed my first former bride’s belly in the spring Ashley saw it and emailed me to share the news that she was pregnant as well!!

I visited Ashley’s nephews a few weeks ago so it was another family reunion when I saw them πŸ™‚
Mark & Ashley live in Hermosa Beach so met up with them over Thanksgiving when I was out in L.A. visiting my in-laws – it was so great to see them and meet little Willa who is just under three months.
Like her Mom Willa has the most beautiful big eyes. She loves being on her changing table and immediately gave me a huge smile…..I felt most welcome πŸ™‚

Ashley is such a natural and relaxed Mom and just loves her little girl to death

Mark painted this beautiful tree in Willa’s nursery – they hung family photos on the “branches” πŸ™‚

Parental multi-tasking – you button her up while I hold her and she gums on my fingers πŸ™‚

Willa’s Grandmother sewed the beautiful bedding for her crib

We moved into Mark & Ashley’s room where it was fun to see one of my wedding photos hanging above their bed πŸ™‚

Safe to say that Willa is a pretty happy baby πŸ™‚

Those eyes!

The whole family πŸ™‚

And their first child Rooney πŸ™‚

This one cracks me up!

A beautiful Momma and her picture perfect little girl πŸ™‚

I think I see a slight resemblance πŸ™‚

At three months Willa already has fabulous style just like her Mom and Dad πŸ™‚

We drove down to the beach and took advantage of some huge sand dunes for a California background πŸ™‚

SO CUTE!

Hermosa Beach had a plethora of fabulous walls πŸ™‚

LOVE.

Willa was totally tuckered by this point!

So home we went for more snuggling in Mom’s arms

Ashley & Mark – it was SO SO much fun to see you both and meet Willa….she is perfect.
