Ryker 3 Month Update

Wow! Where has the time gone? It seems like just a few days ago when I posted a few updates on Ryker at 7 weeks and now he is 3 months old! A lot has changed in the last several weeks as Ryker continues to grow and develop. We are starting to see his personality come out, he’s smiling more and more, and constantly bringing joy to his Mom and Dad’s hearts. We hope you enjoy some of the photos below from the past few weeks! Feel free to check out more over on our SmugMug site.



Ryker 7 Week Update

Ryker continues to grow leaps and bounds. We’ll have his 2 month check-up in just over two weeks from now. I’ll be really interested to hear how much weight he’s gained! He’s gotten on a relatively good schedule, eating about every 3 hours except at night where he’ll go about 6 – 7 hours between feeding. In the next week or so, we’ll be trying to get rid of that middle of the night feeding. I know LaBranda will be a whole lot more grateful about that, as she’s usually the one that gets up to feed him at 4am! Hope you enjoy a few recent photos!

Ryker Newborn Photos

In case you missed our Twitter and Facebook posts, LaBranda and I welcomed our beautiful baby boy, Ryker, into the world on May 30th. It was a long labor process with many ups and downs but in the end we have a very healthy baby boy. A week after his birth, the ever talented Rebecca Mill of The Indie Image (you should really check our her new site – it is pretty awesome) came to our house to photograph some amazing shots.

I’ve shared some of our favorites below. If you want to look at some more, check out the full Ryker’s First Photo Shoot gallery.


Maternity Photos

Early on in our pregnancy we decided that we wanted to invest in some maternity as well as newborn photos. We knew exactly who we wanted to capture these special memories for us – Rebecca Mill of The Indie Image. We met out at Joyner Park in Wake Forest one evening around 6:00pm and in just over an hour, she captured some amazing shots. Once Ryker arrives, we can’t wait to see what sort of newborn shots she captures for us. If you are in need of a photographer for any kind of event, connect with her on Facebook or Twitter. We hope you enjoy some of the photos below!
