Charlotte was the sweetest little peanut. She was two months old at our session and sweet as can be. Thanks Jessica and Ben for letting me cuddle her!!!

Today is World Prematurity Day and in honor of that, I want to share a bit about my friend Mellisa and her adorable baby boy. Jack was born at 32 weeks and was two months old in these photos!

Their family went through so much to get Jack here. Mellisa has always been so brave and open about her struggles with infertility and that is something I admire so much about her! From Mellisa:

“Both of our children were conceived thru in-vitro fertilization. Our seven year old is biologically ours, but Jack Henry is an adopted embryo. We found out with further testing (while trying to add to our family) that scientifically speaking, our oldest shouldn’t be here. My eggs were never viable, and science can’t explain her. Although adoption was always something we were interested in, the desire to be pregnant was still so strong for me. So, we spoke with our doctors, and decided to adopt an embryo. Jack Henry was created from two amazing strangers, who selflessly donated so that we could grow our family. Although Jack is adopted, I was able to have the amazing experience of growing him inside my womb. What an incredible blessing. I felt him move, I heard his heart beat, and watched him grow.”

My baby boy turned one! We celebrated with a quadruple birthday party a few weeks after his day since my husband and two other boys all have birthdays too in a 2 week span of time (we will see how long I can get away with that!).

So since we didn’t have much planned for his ACTUAL birthday, I decided to commemorate with a cake smash session – on film of course!

Happy birthday sweet boy!!!

I had a great time shooting Nashville TN mini sessions this year! Here are a few snaps of two of my families from that day. I’d love to have you join me next time! If you are interested in a mini session email me at leannevicephotography@yahoo.com and like my Facebook Page for updates on when the next minis will be taking place!

You know how some photos just have that *something*. Character, soul, rich tones, vibrant color, dramatic shadows…film does all these things and does them goooood. I’m a little bit obsessed.

“But Leanne, isn’t film outdated? Isn’t digital so much better?”

You be the judge.

“But, can you even get digital copies when you shoot film?”

I’m glad you asked! You absolutely CAN still get digital copies thanks to scanners and modern technology. Shooting film is in my opinion, a win-win-win.

So for your viewing pleasure, a little bit of my life lately, all on film 🙂
