Everyone, please join me in welcoming to the world and to the Ogier family, baby Julia, who they adopted 1 month ago when she was just days old. I first met the Ogiers when I photographed them earlier this year for their bluebonnet session and I was thrilled when I got a ping in my inbox last month inviting me to photograph their growing family. I arrived to their north Austin home on Halloween morning and was greeted by now big sister, Eloise, who excitedly told me all about her Spider Man costume that she would be sporting that night (go, girl) and who casually pointed towards the living room when I asked about the baby. In the middle of the living room I saw an all too familiar (and deeply missed) item from what seems like forever ago in my own life- the Fisher Price Rock n Play. For those of you with children, you know exactly what I’m talking about and for those of you planning on having children one day, take note; you’ll understand what all the hype is about when you discover it’s the only thing that your infant will sleep in. Inside was Julia, a tiny, perfect, beautiful girl staring back up at me with those big brown eyes and all I could think was give.me.that.baby.
Here are some of my favorites from our lifestyle session of this growing, gorgeous family.
