Welcome to the world Joy!
It is my pleasure to introduce you to the newest member of the McIlhenny family: Joy!! Will and Jessica were thrilled to receive the news that they could pick up their baby girl just before Christmas last year and I can't think of a much better Christmas gift than that, can you? :) Before they knew it, they were headed home from Georgia with their beautiful new daughter, Joy! My heart is so happy when I see how their patience and faithfulness has been rewarded; I know that God is definitely smiling on this little family! :)
Their in-home newborn session was most definitely one of my favorite experiences as a photographer thus far! It was incredibly relaxing to meet this lovely family right in the comforts of their beautiful home to capture them just as they were. Their adorable pups made quite a few appearances too and I absolutely love it when furry family members get in on the photography action! :)
Joy was a trooper for her first photoshoot! Between outfit changes and tons of kisses from Mom and Dad, she was definitely the best model her age that I've ever met!!
Congratulations to you both Will and Jess! You are already amazing parents and thank you for inviting me into your family for a day!
Please enjoy a few of my favorites from their session! The light was so beautiful, these images were just screaming for black and white!
