This precious girl is so special to us! We first got to know her family when Collin photographed her parents’ wedding. The entire family was so much fun to work with and we anxiously waited to see if we would get the opportunity to photograph another Patterson wedding when one of the other sisters got engaged. We did! In fact, we photographed Sweet Eleanor’s Aunt Anna Weston’s wedding on our tenth anniversary. Their reception was at The Columns, the same place where Collin and I had our reception ten years earlier. That day we got to know the family even better and they became some of my very favorite people to be around. So you can imagine how excited I was to hear that Elizabeth and James were expecting their first baby! We LOVE watching “our” brides and grooms become parents and I have to say that this couple did a VERY good job with Miss Eleanor. She is such a doll-baby! And see that GORGEOUS veil that she is wrapped up in? I LOVE this veil. It has an incredible story and I’m so glad we were able to incorporate it into the newborn session. They bought the veil years ago when Grace (Eleanor’s grandmother) took her three daughters on a trip to Belgium. They found this amazing veil on that trip and it was determined that all three girls would wear it one day when they walked down the aisle. Don’t you just LOVE that?!?! It makes me so happy and makes me want to do something special like that with my Clara Beth. Baby Eleanor, you have been born into such a fun family! We are so excited to watch you grow up, Sweet Girl!
