Hey Jude!

It’s been quite some time since our last blog post… having a baby will do that to you! We are having so much fun adjusting to being a family of 5.

Jude Arthur Ryan made his way into the world on Wednesday, November 25th at 4:01 a.m. He weighed in at a robust 9 lbs, 6 3/4 oz. and measured 21 inches long.

We photographed Mr. Jude over the course of a couple days. It is, after all, a bit of a challenge being mommy and daddy and the photographers at the same time. We had so much fun, and I think his brothers did too!


A few more shots of his proud big brothers:

Avery and Parker
