Avelyn | Newborn Session at the Mansion on Walnut | Pekin, IL

If you follow me on Facebook, you'll see this little peanut was the baby that humbled me in a way I hadn't realized until this past week. She reminded me of the sacrifices my husband makes to care and provide for us. And I think that is something that can resonate with the Daniel family. They are in the midst of moving to another STATE with a NEWBORN. Can you image? Nope. Not I. Avelyn will be such a beautiful reminder of how strong their family is.

There are so many little and lovely things about this child. Her snuggles, her long fingers, her perfect hair swirl, that beautiful skin. And I love the way both of her parents hold her. Mom with such confidence and grace, dad with his whole body. He holds her in such a protective way that any heart could melt. And Avelyn knows it too. She cracked on and only one smile for me during our whole session... right when her daddy gave her a smooch. I'm not sure how much more perfect they all could be.

Thank you Holly for sharing your family with me. Without further delay... here's what you all came here for.
