Odessa | NEWBORN

    January 22, 2019

    I spent a magical morning with these two gorgeous Hughes girls, just a mere eight days after Odessa’s entrance into the world. Julie now has six (SIX!) children, and watching her bask in the happiness of newborn life was pretty special.

    “I feel like I should stop smiling so big!” Julie said. “But I can’t. I just love her so much.”

    So here’s to jumping into this next chapter with our biggest, biggest smiles, because we love so hard and are just so. happy.
    2019-01-22_0003.jpgJulie wrote this piece about Odessa’s name, and it so beautiful, I feel like it has to be included with her newborn images:

    Her name is Odessa Hughes. She is the last one to join our family, and I’ve been thinking of her odyssey which began long before she was born, and will continue long after her life on earth. Her name will remind her of this truth, and give her perspective during her earthly odyssey. I hope her journey here is full of joy and adventure, but like any worthwhile journey, she will experience troubles and heartaches too. I want Odessa to remember always that the reward will be worth it, and that the journey matters even more than the destination. Bon voyage, little one!2019-01-22_0032.jpg
