The Gagners...With baby Caroline!
Alexxa is one of the ladies that inspired the name of this blog. We met when we worked at the same nonprofit and she sat in the green chair a million times. I knew even when I left my job that she would be a lifelong friend. She will always be someone I go to for advice and perspective, whether she likes it or not.
I wrote my thoughts about her becoming a mom and big shocker: I was right. She is already patient and kind and wonderful and no one is surprised. She can't talk about baby Caroline without smiling. You can see how her world has shifted around the axis of this little babe—she is the kind of mom that will be friends with her daughter. She'll totally be the cool mom.
Her husband Nick (that link is shameless promotion. Nick is a dentist and you should go to him because he's the best) is so amazing with little Caroline too. You can tell he is perfectly in tune with her: always trying to do everything to make her comfortable, fed, and happy. What more could you ask for in a man Caroline?! He is just smitten with her and it's so fun to see him as a dad.
This session was just a couple weeks after she was born and it was incredible to see how easily they both slipped into parental roles. It was also amazing to see this beautiful baby and know that she was a piece of each of them: Nick's face and Alexxa's hair, ;).
We have another shoot coming up soon and I can't wait to share more of this incredible family then!
This kid's hair slays me. We just had to do something fun!
