Family Pictures

(all photos by Katlyn Marie Photography)

Newborn pictures were really important to me but even more important - I wanted pictures with our family and Molly Anne.  I love all of the pictures of the naked baby's but I really wanted good pictures with our parents and us with Molly Anne.  Call me crazy but in 50 years, I wanted these special family pictures.  I have a lot of just Molly Anne that we've taken.  These were different.  And I'm SO glad we have them.

Poor Mills had seen better days...truth be told - I had drugged him unintentionally!  The vet told me to choose an allergy medicine a few days prior to help him not itch as much...well I of course picked the one on the list with no side effects in dogs.  Umm, just so we're clear, Claritin does have side effects and it made Mills drunk!  He was walking sideways yall!  I hate this happened when we had our pictures, but this is real life!  Obviously we stopped giving it to him immediately.  

Back to the pictures...these were taken exactly two weeks after she was born.  

With Kevin's parents.

With my parents.

My parents!

Kevin's parents!

Yes, a baby in a basket - how cliche in the world of newborn photos...but this one is special.  It was my Mom's mother's basket.  Mom passed it down to us and we keep it in Molly Anne's room to hold blankets! 

 Love her.

The head honcho of our household and Molly Anne's room!

Dad made this cradle!

Our favorites.

So glad we have these pictures!
