Watching Families Grow! | Dawn, Paul & Newborn Elliott

It’s a joy and a blessing witnessing friends grow, marry, and start families. We’re so happy for our friends Dawn and Paul and how they’ve really flourished. From Wedding to the arrival of their handsome little newborn boy, Elliott! Precious Elliott’s newborn session is super cute and we just LOVED receiving his birth announcement card in the mail! Proud mom & dad answered a few questions for us, so read on to learn more about Dawn, Paul, & Elliott; to have a peek at a few of their portraits through the years; and OF COURSE to see sweet little Elliott’s adorable Newborn Session Photos too!

First here is a little info about Dawn & Paul!

What do both you and Paul do? Paul writes software code. I work for a Homeschooling co-op.

How long have you been together now?  We've been together for 4 years. We'll have been married for 3 years come August 2018.

This is the beautiful Bride at her Bridal Session in Hampton Park, Charleston!

How did you do your gender announcment? For our gender announcement, we invited family and friends to our house for brunch, then we had everyone gather outside.  Paul revved up the tractor and blue smoke came out of the exhaust for baby boy. It was pretty cool. There's a video on youtube where you can check it out right here!

Here are just a few super sweet Charleston Maternity Session photos!

Do you have a nursery theme and if so what theme did you choose for Elliott? Animals.

How have you, Paul, & Elliott adjusted since bringing baby home?  ;) We're exhausted but beyond joyful and in love with our little guy.

From belly to baby! love these "before & after" images of Paul lovin' on the baby! ;-)

What do you like most about your newborn session?  I love all the options. There are so many positions and different backgrounds and themes to choose from.  It was very difficult deciding which pictures to put on our birth announcement, but it was worth it for all those amazing pictures!

We're so happy that our friends are SO HAPPY with their Newborn Session Photos! If you'd like to see some more photos of a family we've seen grow from wedding to newborn check this out!
