Madeleine is one tough cookie. At 34 weeks, she came into this world at a whopping 4lbs 3ozs. Her mommy had preeclampsia, and it was better for them both to deliver early than try to continue the pregnancy. A total fighter, she was home with mommy and daddy after only a couple weeks in the hospital. She’s doing great, and is now a couple weeks past her original due date. So, while these photos were technically her 2 month photos, we were still able to do some of the more newborn-style shots because she’s still so teeny.
We’ve been friends with her parents, Leah and Mark, for years. Unfortunately for us, they moved down to the San Francisco area this summer a couple weeks after Leah’s baby shower. We’ve been watching sweet Maddy progress, and were so happy and thankful that everything turned out well. Obviously, I jumped at the chance when Leah told me that they were coming up for a visit and asked if we could fit them in.
Seriously, isn’t she adorable?!
It’s always inconvenient when you’re trying to wrap up a family shoot, and Grimlock shows up to scare everyone. ;)
