I absolutely adore the Artrip family!

I have had the great pleasure of working with, and become friends with, Kellie over the past four years. The first time I met them was for their  family session with Liv was just 6 months old! She was the most adorable baby then and is still perfectly adorable! Now she is a big sister!

Adam and Kellie welcomed their second baby, Elijah Martin, “Eli” for short, on 11/9/19 at 8:03 in the morning. He weighed in at 7 pounds, 11 ounces and was 20 inches long. Absolutely everything about him was perfection!

Kellie and Adam are so excited to have Eli finally here. They have been so excited for their little guy to come and make them a family of four. They are full of love for their new addition and so excited to see Liv become a big sister.

The delivery was smooth sailing compared to Kellie’s first experience. Eli must have known they were ready and waiting! Kellie told me “we have waited so long for Elijah. The first time I saw him I was overcome with joy and relief that he was finally here and healthy. He is absolutely perfect and everything we had ever hoped for.”

Eli is the first male grandchild so everyone, especially daddy, is super excited to have a little man join the family. Kellie told me that “having two little ones definitely keeps you on your toes but Liv has absolutely stepped up to be an amazingly helpful and attentive big sister so that’s been such a blessing.”

Eli has been such a great baby. According to Kellie, “Eli is pretty laid back like his daddy.  Doesn’t really fuss unless he’s hungry. He’s kept me up at night a little more than his sister but overall he’s been a pretty perfect baby.”

I am so excited to share these photos with you all!
