Madison, Mississippi baby boy lifestyle newborn session

Oh what a blessing it was getting to capture this newborn session for my sweet friends!! Callie & Dakota welcomed Houston Wells Tate on June 13 at 12:51pm. Houston weighed 9 pounds, 8 ounces, & was 21.5 inches long. I was SO excited to get to meet him & capture their first official family photos during their baby boy lifestyle newborn session in Madison, Mississippi!

You may remember Callie & Dakota from their maternity session back in the spring! They are some of our dearest friends, & we have loved celebrating baby Houston’s arrival. Houston ended up having a stay in the NICU after he was born, but Callie & Dakota never wavered in their faith in the Lord! We prayed for God to heal Houston & for Him to bring peace to Callie & Dakota as they waited to bring him home. They finally got to come home as a family last week, & we rejoiced alongside them!! We’re so thankful fo the Lord’s faithfulness & can’t wait to watch Houston grow!!

I absolutely loved taking their photos in Houston’s beautiful nursery that Callie designed. It has so many sweet details – a painting of Houston’s heartbeat during pregnancy, special books that Callie & Dakota will read to Houston, & a custom painting above Houston’s crib with a prayer that Callie & Dakota wrote for him. They put so much thought into every part of the room – so precious!

Dakota & Callie – we love y’all so much & are so thankful for y’all’s friendship. Y’all are already incredible parents to Houston! Continue to trust in the Lord on this parenthood journey. He will always be faithful!!
