Baird Family | Newborn Session in Belleville, IL | St. Louis Photography

I remember when Jordon and Erin told us they were pregnant. They met us for dinner at the local German restaurant, Hofbrauhaus in Belleville, IL. Seriously one of the most amazing restaurants. A live German folk band, authentic German costumes for all of the staff, massive amounts of food, the most delicious baked pretzel with a sweet onion sauce, and the BEST apple strudel ever!!!!

We ate this amazing food together, when they popped their news. I couldn't believe it!!!!!!!!! And my husband and I were so so honored to be two of the people they told their special news to!

Jesse and Jordon spent two years earning their nursing degree in the same program. They were fast friends! When together, they are absolute goofballs. But we love them just the same - despite their cheesy jokes and all!

And when Erin texted me asking me to shoot their Maternity photos, I was thrilled. Not gonna lie, these two are beautiful people, inside and out! So photogenic! So I was excited to work with them!

Lo and behold, little baby Nora decided she wanted to join the world. We didn't get to do the maternity session, but instead met for a NEWBORN SESSION!

Nora made it easy! After cuddling with her mama, she slept like a little angel and made the most beautiful pictures! Her room - oh my land - was literally everything I dreamed of having for a daughter someday! I'll have to get some tips, Erin!!!!

Check out this amazing family!
