I got the chance to meet Tia years ago when she was pursuing modeling. My makeup artist has become like family to me and so has her family (Tia is her baby sister). When I first heard that Tia was engaged to be married I was so excited. I love going to weddings. Nothing more sentimental about your love joining and my favorite part is the cupid shuffle! Not too long after we started prepping for their engagement photos we found out that she and her beau were expecting a little baby boy. There was going to be a new baby in family and I am so blessed that they immediately thought to hire me. Sometimes when starting a small business your friends and family automatically want a hand out, but to find people that genuinely believe in you and support you means that much more.

So not only did they book, but they included me in the entire welcoming process!!

This new little family has an adorable little stinker on their hands. Tatum is a good mix of his parents. He looks like dad most of the time (isn't that crazy?), but there were some faces he made that favored Tia's mom, his Lola (word for grandmother in the Philippine language). Check out the rest of his adorable little self.

Do you have a little one on the way? I would love to help you capture these fleeting moments. They'll never be this small again.
