The Earl Family | #sincerelylizphoto

I met Allison through The Motherhood Collective last year and she quickly stepped in as Sunday's nanny when we were on the hunt for someone trustworthy, reliable, and who would truly care for our baby girl. Something I really value is that our parenting styles are similar and the interaction between Sunday and Aiden is just the icing on the cake!! It makes my mama heart smile so big to know that Allison and Aiden both enjoy hanging out with Sunday two afternoons a week. You should see the two share hugs and kisses… it kills me! This family is so, so sweet. Greg works his tail off in law school (he graduates soon and is whisking them out of state for work! :() and Allison is a true role model wife and mother. She nurtures their home, cooks healthy delicious meals, leads an active lifestyle and just radiates in her roles. I admire her so much! It is an honor to call her a friend.

So needless to say, I was more than happy for the opportunity to capture their little family for a few minutes in downtown Lynchburg this past fall. Their session was so quick and easy! Aiden was a little ham and had a ton of fun in front of the camera. We shot for about twenty minutes and Aiden even hung in there at the end for a clothing change for the gender reveal pictures! I wanted to hold off on sharing this session until they shared their news publicly, so check out the reveal at the bottom! :)

And.... they are having....!

A girl! I am SO excited and happy for Allison to have a sweet baby girl!! I think it's also kind of fun that Aiden has been practicing having a little girl around for a few months now... he's going to be a great big brother!
