sydney | newborn portraits

i spent the week with my best friend and her husband after they had this little bundle of sweetness. i got to change hundreds of diapers and rock this little angel to sleep…. it was heaven.:)billie and i also learned a very valuable lesson about babies and diapers…. letting your newborn go diaper-less for too long can be very very very dangerous… we learned the hard way.;)haha.

enjoy the beautiful Sydney Marie’s newborn portraits! xoxo, lindsey

p.s. check out her birth story here!

i so love this first photo. however, it was a long road to get there!

Billie Jo is my best friend in the whole entire world. we’ve have been best friends for the last 17 1/2 years. that’s a very very long time. i would jump in front of a car for her, bring her chocolate milk every day, share my donut with her {that’s saying a lot}, and stay up all night long to photograph the birth of her first baby.:)so basically, i would do anything….

when she called on Friday March 21st to say she thought it was happening – as soon as i could i packed up the car – grabbed her mom and her sister and jammed the 4 hours south, praying to make it in time! well, turned out we had plentyyyyyyy of time.

here is the story of the birth of the most beautiful Sydney Marie. xoxo, lindsey

March 21st is an incredibly popular birthday in Ray’s family. this is his mom and his twin sister celebrating their birthday! we all had our fingers crossed for Sydney to be born that day as well – but she decided she wanted to have her very own special day! a little princess already….:)

what happened in between this last photo and this iPhone photo of Sydney Marie just born, is a complete blur. Billie was rushed off to have an emergency c-section – it was like we blinked and all of a sudden she was gone! but it all turned out perfectly.

Welcome Sydney Marie!! {this image was taken by a very proud daddy}

Of Wind & Waves is the amazingly talented music duo of Jeremy & Sarah.

if you don’t know who Sarah is by now, well, then you should. not only can she sing like an angel, but her photos have a way of blowing my mind.

Jeremy is one awesome guy.  he roasts some mean coffee beans over at Joebella. he can also write one very pretty song.

we set out on an adventure to get them some new band photos – and this was the result. we had so.much.fun. make sure you click here to ‘like’ them on Facebook and to know about upcoming shows! xoxo lindsey
