Ari graced the world with her beautiful presence 9 days before her due date. She was born after only 7 hours of labor on 7/7/19 weighing 6lbs. 11 oz. and was 19 3/4 inches long. After arriving to the hospital at 9 cm, Joy chose a water birth in which Nathan was able to catch her as well as cut the cord.
Joy shared that everything about Ari’s coming into the world was laid back and perfectly timed. Ari loves to eat, be in water, and look at the dogs.
Her favorite place is in mom’s arms and a close second being inside dad’s kangaroo shirt pouch. While they don’t want to jinx it, she is such a calm, peaceful baby and rarely ever fusses. She is the first grand baby on mom’s side, and the 12th on dad’s side.
It has been such an honor to take Joy’s maternity photos, and now Ari’s newborn photos. The family has chosen my “Grow With Me” package which means they will also receive two more sessions (one of their choice and the other for Ari’s first year birthday photos) along with Ari’s 12 month photos which means I literally get to watch her grow with Joy and Nathan over the course of her first year. Feeling so blessed to continue sharing and capturing these moments for them. Thanks again and congratulations to your precious growing family!!
