Olive | A Life Story | Olathe, KS In Home Newborn Session

This is my first time getting to photographer the Bates' as a family. I've photographed their engagement, wedding, and maternity---and now their sweet little girl Olive. Do you know how exciting that is? I feel like I've said this 1,000 times, but t's amazing to be with others during some of the most important times in their lives.

When I found out Elizabeth was pregnant I could not have been happier for them! There is no doubt in my mind that they are going to be loving, supportive, and caring parents, and they are going to equip their little one with as much as she needs.

They were so sweet to allow me to capture them in their natural habitat, seeing Olive's nursery, and getting cozy in the natural light with sunshine and happiness.

Now, without further delay, here's little miss, 23 days fresh, Olive. :)

Oh Elizabeth, mommyhood looks so good on you! You're such a babe. In a modest... mom... kinda way. Clearly those genes were passed down. ;)

Sean---these were some of my favorite daddy moments ever! It's so clear that you're filled with love towards sweet little Olive. And ready to polish that shotgun when boys come over. No big deal.

And there it is. You guys made a freaking baby, and look like you just went to the mall or something. I'm so happy for you family of three, and I can't wait to see where Miss Olive goes in life. :) Thank you for making time to welcome me into your home and capture her during this point in her new life!
