Introducing Miss Charley Jean| Newborn Session| Hickory, NC

I was thrilled to get to do this newborn session for a friend of mine, Lauren.  If you follow my blog, you will remember a little over a month ago, I did Josh and Lauren’s maternity session.  I would like to introduce Charley Jean.  She is named after two of her grandmothers.  I just love her name.  It sounds so southern to me.

Let me share a story.  Josh’s grandmother passed away last year, but before she did, she knitted two blankets for Josh and Lauren.  One pink and one blue. Lauren wasn’t even pregnant when she gave the blankets to them.  Now that she is gone, these blankets are treasures to Josh and Lauren and it is something that they will pass down to Charley Jean one day for her children.  That is just so special to them both so you will see some images of those blankets throughout this session.

Charley was so perfect for this session.  I could not have asked for a better baby or parents that just dove right in and helped me with anything I asked them to do or needed.  I always have fun around these two!
