Introducing little Tenley Evelyn! This cutie was a little bit older than my usual newborns, at 29 days old, but she was an adorable little peanut.
Sweet little Tenley was born at Bryn Mawr Hospital at just about 34 weeks along. She spent 18 days in the NICU after her mom had been on bed rest for 2 months due to some serious complications. But both Mom and Tenley pulled through!
Mom said that it was a trying time, but it was also one filled with love:
Since I was in the hospital for the two months leading up to my delivery, there were so many people who helped and continue to help our family. My Mom, Jamie’s parents, other family members, and countless friends did so much for us, and we are forever grateful. However, my husband is the true hero who kept our house running smoothly, comforted Tristan when he really missed me, and helped support me from afar. I truly fell in love with him all over again!
I was so glad to see Mom and Tenley in my studio after everything they’d been through, and of course, I was thrilled to see little Tristan as well. I did the newborn photos for him, too, so seeing him in full big brother mode was so fun!
Mom also told me the sweetest story of how they found out that they would be having a daughter:
We found out it was a girl through a cupcake reveal with a few family members. It was such an exciting moment, one I will never forget. I was the first one to see the pink icing. The confirmation of being pregnant with a daughter truly took my breath away, and then I cried so many happy tears. I just couldn’t believe it! Tristan said there was a baby sister in mama’s belly since day 1, and he was right. He even said he had a baby sister in his belly too!! Thankfully, that was just pretend.
James & Carrie, I’m so glad that I was able to do these newborn photos for you, and I’m thrilled for your little miracle!
