The Paynes have easily become a family favorite for me. Last year, I captured maternity photos for Trish and James, so it was an awesome full circle moment meeting their little babe, Ellie!

Let me tell you. Babies can be one of the most challenging subjects to photograph. While they are adorable, you definitely can't communicate with them the same way you would an adult or even an older child. But Ellie was a little pro. As soon as I met her and whipped out my camera, she was all smiles.

Much love to the Payne family!
