Growing bigger every day…

“Babies make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, homes happier, clothes dirtier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.”

I was super excited when Jacquilyn Avery (also known as Jax from Aly & Ash) offered to do a newborn photo session for Mason when he was only 10 days old. Weighing in at only 5 and a half pounds, he certainly was a teeny little thing. Now, at 6 weeks old he is already 8.7 lbs, growing bigger and changing every day! I am grateful for Jax in taking the time to capture these sweet pictures of Mason. I already miss this tiny little body that curls up in my arms when he sleeps- newborns are the sweetest!

Take a look at some of my favorites:

Jax was so professional, loving and full of patience. Her pictures are amazing and I am sad I didn’t invest in newborn pictures as good as these for my first 3 kids- what was I thinking?!?!? I am so happy to have this moment of Mason’s life captured in fabulous photos- they really are priceless!

  8. How lovely! He seems to have sweet dreams!

  9. Awww, he slept the whole time and y’all just put him in adorable fluffy things to sleep on! That is so stinkin’ cute! I’m imagining what newborn sessions with my kids would have looked like–little red-faced screaming babies on top of adorable fluffy things. Not the same effect, perhaps…

  10. omg he’s so precious and little!! You’re a lucky mama!

  11. Oh how precious is he! Those are beautiful.
