A few weeks ago, I posted a picture to Instagram of the first set of photos that I was mailing out from a newborn session.  My cousin's good friend, Blair, saw the photo and reached out to see if I could do her newborn pictures.  She was due in less than a week.  Of course I would love to document such a precious time for such a dear friend.

Blair and I met a few years ago. We were both going to be bridesmaids in my cousin's wedding and knew of each other but had not yet met. A month or so before the wedding, I was working at Simmzy's {aka delicious} and in walks a blonde asking for quarters. I look at her and say "Blair?" She looks at me and says "OMG, Erin?" We squealed and hugged and our friends and co-workers looked on in confusion, "Wait, you two have never met?"  Clearly we were meant to know each other.

For Cole's newborn session, we spent a sunny Sunday in their beautiful home full of dreamy light.  Blair and her husband Amir are such a warm and loving couple who know how to enjoy life, and Cole is a very lucky little man to join such a wonderful family.

Introducing Cole Carter, at five days old.  Handsome little heart-breaker.
