Sorry, don’t mind me. Just melting over here!
My lands, we have waited for little Aily to arrive for sometime now, lots of prayers and love went into her arrival and I am glad to introduce you all to The Adorableness herself. Aily’s parents are also the parents of those cuties, Emma and Zackary, back from our halloween shoot. They are now proud siblings of their new baby sister. Her mommy Mariko, who was my Japanese teacher from high school and one of my dearest mentors, was probably relived that she came right before the summer holidays. Her parents even came in from Japan to stay for a month to help out with the new little one! Fun fact, here parents were one of my home stays when I first visited Japan-so it was a blessing of a time for me also to be able to see them again for the first time in 5 years!
Aily’s name is a special one. Her full name is Aily Laurel Anderson. Aily is the english version of 愛里 (Airi,) which means “The reason of love or reasons to love” as well as the same character “ri” used in Mariko’s name. Laurel was from the Anderson’s family great grandmother who recently passed away. She was a lady who was loved by all the of them very deeply, especially by Mariko even before she came into the Anderson family. I love this little clan, and am so happy to continue to share their ever growing bunch! Especially when we get to create in their own living space. Those are always my favorite type of Littles or Family shoots. Congrats again, Aarin and Mariko Anderson!
But I gotta say, I am calling it now. Aily has a great set of lungs. This little one if going to be a singer with attitude. I am just saying…
Thank you Lord for such a healthy, precious little baby!
