Welcome to the World Harper Grace!

My brother Casey and his beautiful wife Leslie welcomed a baby girl into the world. My entire family was so excited for her arrival. Harper Grace is my parent's first grandchild and my first niece. We could not wait to take some pictures of our beautiful baby girl, so at just a week old she is already a model!

I'm definitely not a professional photographer, in fact I just got a fancy camera as a graduation present last May. But I've been practicing, reading tutorials and looking at photos I like. We took the pictures in my Mom's backyard which is well shaded and the grass is lush and green. And we picked the perfect time of day, around 4:30 PM. My Mom picked out a beautiful antique quilt my great grandmother made and an antique mirror that used to hang in my room when I was a little girl.

I have to say, she was fantastic and the taking pictures of her was so fun. I'm enjoying every minute of being an aunt. Maybe in a few years in can give her a cousin :)

Baby Shower Cookies

In a few days I will be an Aunt for the very first time! Just a few weeks ago my aunt's threw a beautiful, fun baby shower for my sister-in-law Leslie. I was thrilled to make some cute cookies for my coming niece, Harper Grace, as shower favors. I'm so excited to show them to ya'll. Enjoy!
