Oh that Mel. She just kills me. It's been since THESE gorgeous pre-baby images and THESE first family photos that we've shared any of Mel's work over here on the blog. I literally cannot even look at that first set of pics without tearing up. Just thinking about the amazing boy that was inside of me, just waiting to make his entrance into this wild life.
And now, he's this handsome little fella (at least we think so) with this amazing heart and inquisition for life. Mel did such an amazing job capturing Nash's true personality and we were all floored that she even got a few grins and smiles. Nash surely doesn't give those away easily. I was a little over 6 months pregnant and Nash was almost 18 months.
Thank you Mel for the laughter, memories and beautiful imagery of that day. We'll absolutely cherish these forever. If you're in the Austin, Arkansas or New York areas, make SURE to check out more of Mel's work via The Cole Collective and RollinsCole.
I literally cannot even look at this image above. It's one of my favorite I've ever seen. Or wait, I can. I'll just sit here and stare at it, losing total track of time. Those tiny, amazing eyes...watching, waiting, taking it all in. This is my Nash. This is my boy. This is so much of the joy and pride in our life. Captured, raw. Ok, my eyes are watering. No more photo chatter. My pregnancy hormones are getting the best of me.
Hope y'all enjoy and happy Friday, friends! I'm heading off for a girl's beach weekend with Luann over at The Riley Fam and Walt has his first official Daddy/Dude weekend with the lil' Bubs. I cannot wait to hear the monkey business those two get up to for the next 48 hours. That, in and of itself, could probably be a pretty entertaining post. I'm not worried one bit about them but I'm way worried about how much I'm going to miss them both!
