Introducing sweet little Adelyn Joy! This darling baby girl came to me just 11 days after she was born at Doylestown Hospital.
I was so excited to see this family back in my studio, since I had done the photography for big sister Liliana Grace when she was born—and then again when she turned 1. I can’t believe how big Liliana is now—and how beautiful she is—and it really was something else to see her being a big sister to sweet little Adelyn. These two girls were just so cute together, and I couldn’t get enough of them!
Mom told me that Adelyn was a beautiful Christmas surprise for her family:
I found out I was pregnant a few days before Christmas, so I decided to share the news with Matt and Liliana by having them open a special gift on Christmas morning. After all the presents were opened, I said I had one last gift, the best one of all, and Liliana opened up a “big sister” shirt and Matt opened up a “we’re expecting” Christmas ornament. I videotaped the whole thing. As hard as it was to keep the secret on Christmas Eve, it was well-worth the wait seeing Matt’s reaction when he opened his gift Christmas morning.
I also loved the way they picked out little Adelyn’s name:
We chose Adelyn’s middle name (Joy) after my Aunt Joyce, who passed away from cancer nearly 15 years ago. She was a special person who was loved dearly. This was the perfect way to honor her memory and celebrate this joyous time in our life.
Jenna & Matthew, thank you for bringing your beautiful family to my studio. I loved getting to see you all again and celebrating with you as you become a family of four!
