Kiss Me, I'm Irish

November 30, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Handsome little Conor was welcomed into his very Irish family just a few weeks ago.  The pleased look on this young Irishman's face tells me he knows that now is a good time to be a Notre Dame football fan.  #1, baby...

"Go ahead, kiss me.  I'm Irish."

Aidan and Maeve seem to have warmed right up to their baby brother.  This sibling-cuddle picture just might be my favorite pic from the entire shoot.  They are all so young and precious!  Conor fits right into the fam - he just needs to catch up on his freckles! :)

Big Brother Aidan is ready to show Conor the ropes to boyhood...

Maeve is also ready to be a big helper.  I love this picture of the two together.  Conor is perfectly happy and content in the arms of Big Sis.

Conor has some pretty stellar parents.  Mike isn't just a Notre Dame fam - he is an alum.  His bride, Ellen, went to school just down the road at St. Mary's.  I met this couple through a mutual friend at - of all things -  an Irish Breakfast on St. Patrick's Day several years ago.

Thanks so much, Ellen and Mike, for inviting me to capture this special time for your family!  It was a blessing to spend time with you and your awesome little kiddos!
