The West Family | Azle, Texas

There really are no words for how excited I was to be able to fly out to Texas to spend some time with my brand new niece and my little sister. When I found out that I was going to be an aunt again, and then that it was a girl, I was over - - the - - moon. We have a little tribe of girls on our side of the family!

 Having lived so far away from my family for as long as we have, it is always a blessing when I get to go and spend time with them. And you can bet I soaked it all in, every last baby snuggle and blueberry pancake.

Photographing them and telling this tiny part of their story while I was there was the cherry on top of an already perfect sundae.
