I will never forget last March when my sister-in-law, Tricia, (also Tommy’s twin sister) and brother-in-law, Jake, invited all of us over for dinner and announced they were pregnant! It was such exciting news and I couldn’t believe I was going to be an aunt!

Fast forward a few months and they announced it was a boy! We were all so excited and couldn’t wait to meet this sweet boy. 

Owen was due to arrive on Christmas Day. December 25th came around and Tricia headed in to the hospital. Early the next morning, Owen made his arrival. I stayed up texting my MIL all night long. We were so excited we couldn’t sleep. I remember rolling over around 4 am to wake Tommy. “It’s time to go!!!!” We arrived at St. Joes around 5am and 37 minutes later heard the little chime over the intercom signaling a baby had been born. We just knew it had to be him!

When Jake finally came out to announce the news and bring us back I was in the bathroom SO sick . Sorry if that’s TMI (I had just found out I was pregnant a few weeks prior and the morning sickness was REAL). I was having major FOMO as everyone walked back to meet baby Owen! But I eventually made my way (half alive ha) and of course my eyes filled with tears, he was the cutest blonde haired, blue eyed little guy. 

I photograph babies all the time, but holding my little nephew was just so special. He really is so special and our family will never ever be the same!

Tricia and Jake are doing such an amazing job at being parents. It’s so fun to see them as a mom and dad. They have transitioned into their roles so effortlessly!

I love you guys and I’m so thankful I could take these photos for you!
