"a portrait of niels once a week, every week, in 2016."

we spent the weekend house/dog-sitting in park city, and nielsy looooved milo (the dog). nielsy crawled around saying "da da dog gog dog" on repeat all day, and got so excited every time he saw milo. niels loved patting milo's back, grabbing his tail and poking him with one finger. niels also loved trying to steal the dog food/chew toys and share his binky with milo...

the wilsons


these are our friends we stayed with in dc last month. we ended up taking a spontaneous day trip to baltimore, and the light was so good when we were sitting in this little park, that i had to snap a few shots of their cute, growing family.
they're the nicest, happiest people, and one of my favorite things about staying with them was our late night chats, after the babes went to bed. it was so fun to hang out with friends late into the night (since that seems to happen less and less these days), and worth every bit of sleep deprivation. :)

niels has been pulling himself up into a standing position with anything he can get his hands on. (he's also sometimes so cute that his mom can't choose only one weekly portrait.)

zach, meredith and sweet little ruby que make the cutest family. ruby is so precious and such a strong newborn, and zach and meredith make the sweetest, most doting parents. plus, can we talk about how amazing meredith and her lush mermaid hair look just two weeks after giving birth?? i just love these guys and am so glad they chose me to capture these tender moments. :)
p.s. email me at shaylalilianblog@gmail.com if you'd like me to take your family photos!

if niels had it his way, he would have a toy in each hand at all times.
