Ellen- Newborn

Nearly two years ago, I took some newborn shots of a handsome dark-haired boy named Ethan. This past week, I was back at Ethan's house taking his little sister, Ellen's, first portraits!
Ellen decided to surprise her family with a three week early arrival and a labor so fast that her dad made it to the delivery room a couple pushes before she entered the world. Weighing in at 5lbs. 12 oz., she's starting off life with triple the hair my husband has on his head.
So feast your eyes on the tiny beauty that is "Ellen"...

Love the pictures, she is a beautiful baby girl. Congratulations to the both of you. Blessed are you both, a bouncing baby boy and little princess to boot. By the way, I like the one with the bow on her head.
