Let me introduce you to sweet baby Gracie.  A beautiful girl who is loved and adored by her parents, and family.  She has been anxiously awaited by many, including myself.  You see, her family is the first I have had the honor of photographing through many big moments in life.  Rachel & Ben first appeared in front of my camera for their engagement photos, and after having the pleasure of photographing their wedding I was able to photograph their maternity photos.  It has been such a great joy to watch them share love and excitement for the life they are constantly building together.  I want to say thank you to Rachel & Ben for having me along.  You are two wonderful people, and Grace is such a lucky girl to have you two as parents!  Here's to the Bauks family and their new baby girl!

Here is a little snapshot of Rachel & Ben before baby Grace was born!  It's so fun to look back on these moments they've shared together.

First (professional) family photo!  One to treasure for years to come.  I loved Grace's pink and grey nursery.  Rachel really outdid herself!

Look at those cute little newborn toes, and a lovely new Mom.

Ben & Grace.  Sheer joy for the littlest one, doing the little things.

Baby Grace has an elephant themed nursery.  How cute is that mobile with the hot air balloon?

A new family snuggling on the couch together.  Taking it all in. The Bauks have a beautiful future ahead of them.

Grace & I at the end of her newborn session!  Thanks for the photo Rachel!
