A Peek at our Newborn Photos and Valentine’s Gifts for Him


Our newborn photos are back and I can’t wait to share them all with you, but I went ahead and picked out some of my favorites of Brandon and Watson to show you today. Figured it was a good chance to share my gift guide for HIM for Valentine’s Day! Have I ever told you that Valentine’s Day is our “date-iversary?” This year marks 14 years. (We were babies.)

But back to this shoot… Rosie was just eight days old here. I was taking photos with her while Brandon and Watson played off to the side. I’m so glad Marni, caught these photos of them. Random shots are the best! Like the last two where Watson is eating a slice of bread! It’s his favorite thing and in a photoshoot with a toddler, sometimes you’ve just got to pull out the big guns. (We have to keep the loaf of bread on the very top of the pantry so he can’t see it and get tempted!)

Brandon’s outfit is from Nordstrom. He is not a big shopper at all, so going on their website to the men’s shop sort of takes the guesswork out of it. I picked out this sweater for him to wear for these pictures and it has since sold out, but this one, this one, and this one are all really similar! His shirt is this one and his jeans are these. I gave that watch to Brandon as a wedding gift almost five years ago, but a few I spotted that are very similar are this one, this one, this one, and this one. We opted for no shoes for this one. 🙂


BRANDON: Sweater (similar here, here, here)  |  Shirt |  Jeans (less expensive option here)  |  Similar Watch: here, here, here, and here

ME: shirt (only $19 and such a good basic for layering or alone!)  |  Similar Jeans

    They are so cute together! You are so lucky! I can’t wait to see Rosie’s photos. I actually got my husband and similar shave kit for Christmas and he loves it!
