We're having a mini baby boom in my family where both of my sisters and my sister-in-law were pregnant at the same time as me. My older sister lives out of town but happened to be visiting Knoxville when she went into labor and gave birth less than half an hour after arriving at the hospital. Little Landon weighed 8lb 5oz and was only a few hours old when I took these photographs at the hospital.

Here are a few more favorite photographs from my session with the triplets, including one of Alayna with her big sister Audrey. They were all three under 5lb when born at 34 weeks, and they did spend some time in the NICU. At this newborn session, they were just under a month old but still smaller than most full-term babies.

Unfortunately, I was looking forward to several weddings this year that I had to pass on because of my pregnancy. Hailey and Michael are getting married at Holy Ghost Church next month, and I was very excited about getting to work with them. Her father was one of my favorite teachers in high school, and I really enjoyed photographing her sister Hannah's wedding in 2005. I also did Hailey's senior photos, and I know that she will be a gorgeous bride. I'm confident that my friends Matt and Erin Browne will do a fabulous job in my place though, and at least I did get to photograph their engagement session at the Knoxville Botanical Gardens.

They are such a super sweet couple, and I hope that they have a beautiful wedding and a very happy marriage!

Meet Caleb, Alayna, and Charlie! I'm just processing the photographs from their newborn session last week and wanted to share this one on the triplets. Photographing three babies at the same time is as challenging as you would expect, but they were just oh so very cute.

Adorable Times Three

Edited to add a couple more favorites. These three were actually really good at sleeping for me, but they were very particular about HOW they wanted to sleep. They resisted being on their stomachs or sides and didn't want anyone moving their heads or arms around. Apparently they were trained in the NICU to only sleep on their backs, and they liked having their arms up over their faces (maybe to block the light?). I couldn't have captured the photos that I did without the help and patience of their parents and older sister. These are three very loved babies!
