Sadie Lynn McCombs was born on March 27, 2017 at 2:04 in the afternoon. All twenty-two inches and eight pounds of her are completely perfect, although, she's probably already a few inches bigger now. Her parents Chelsea and Chad asked me to capture her at 5 days old inside their home in Jamesville, North Carolina. Lifestyle portraits are my favorite because you see so many details: where she'll be raised, her crib, her baby presents, the dining table she'll one day eat at, her bow ties, her closet full of pink, the diaper station, everything. All of the details clue in to how her future will unfold.
Sadie Lynn played dress up throughout the photo shoot where one moment she was a flower girl, another moment she was a naked girl, and moments later she'd be in her grandmother's newborn dress. Family heirlooms are truly incredible. Then we wrapped up the shoot with something festive: Sadie was an Easter Bunny! Of course, I saved the best for last so be sure to see this entire collection of Sadie Lynn and her family. They will all tug your heartstrings!
Congratulations to the Chelsea and Chad and their families! You are brand new parents to a beautiful little girl and I cannot wait to watch you all grow.
A full cycle: Sadie in her grandmother's newborn dress, being held by her grandmother!
