Rhett (5 days old)... / by Julie Cruz

A perfect couple, a perfect home, a perfect dog, and now a perfect baby! This adorable family was an absolute dream to shoot. If you follow my Lot116 Facebook page, you might have seen my post, bragging about showing up at a shoot where homemade cookies were waiting for me. Yes, this was the home....and how anyone who JUST had a baby, also had time to make cookies...is beyond me. On top of her amazing cookie making skills (I had to stop myself from eating PJ's! ....and when PJ ate hers, she kept saying (make sure you say this with a full mouth) "Mmmmm....this cookie is soooo goooooood"), Nena looked AMAZING! I told her during the shoot that women all over the world were going to be cursing her name and saying "HOW did she just have a baby!....let alone FIVE *DAYS* ago!?" ;) hahaha. Along with perfection comes the most perfect little boy. Oh my goodness, Rhett is just so adorable, so sweet and soooo handsome already! I can't wait to see him again in a few months! Oh and I can't forget to mention the two other awesome "guys" of the house, Rhett's daddy (who was SO sweet and awesome and helped me so much!), and Rusty, their adorable black lab who showed off his swimming and diving skills for me. On to the adorableness.....

They didn't find out the sex of the baby, so since it was a surprise, so were the final touches of their nursery. Their designer was actually coming over later that afternoon to finish adding "boy" touches to the nursery, but even "not complete"....his nursery was awesome...and the light in there was amazing!
