It was a rainy day when I arrived at the Rhatigan's Reston, VA home for Baby Braden's lifestyle newborn session. The Rhatigans and I go way back due to having mutual friends and I have loved photographing their growing family over the years. Big brother Colton was excited to show me his big boy bed when I got there. He was interested in his little brother, but not quite sure what to make of him yet. ;-)
Meghan looked gorgeous as always and it is even more amazing that she looked so glam considering the fact that Braden scared the living daylights out of them during his birth. Let's just say that it was a wild and crazy ride and that she and her husband, Bobby, were both so glad that everyone was ok.
Braden was an absolute dream to photograph. He slept the whole time and was so calm and chill. I loved that every once in awhile he would give me the cutest little newborn smiles and don't even get me started about cheeks and adorably wrinkly fingers. I'm so excited to be able to watch him grow and change! What a precious little guy!
