L is for Lyric


photo sessions for new families are always fun. especially when they have little blessings like baby Lyric here. it was such a pleasure for april and i to share these moments with lyric's ohana.




there's no place like mama's arms.




how cool is this?
we wrapped lyric up in the veil that octavia (lyric's bonita mama) wore during her wedding in india. so cute!
when rain saw this picture she asked "is that a real baby? she looks like a doll."




only God could make a doll this beautiful.







are lyric's parents in trouble or what?
good luck saying "no" to puppy dog eyes like these. can't be done. don't even try.




hitting the books with papa.







john is an amazing guitar player. during our session he broke out the acoustic and played some suhweet music that kept lyric happy as a clam.
i have to say that it was pretty soothing to our ears too. april wasn't fussy at all and i didn't have the urge to cry once. :)




lyric was loving papa's music. it would be so sweet to have concerts performed daily, just for you, by your own dad. lucky ducky.




lyric's first guitar is waiting for her. it won't be long until she's rocking the suburbs.




she is so precious!




what a blessing it was to have met john, octavia, and little baby lyric. they are first ballot candidates for the super-ohana hall of fame.
thank you so so much john and octavia for allowing april and i to document this precious fleeting moment in lyric's life.
may God continue to shine His light on you and keep you safe and happy always.
