I had the honor of photographing Terra and Eric’s beautiful wedding in June 2011. They welcomed an adorable baby girl into the world in October. I was over the moon to meet her and photograph their family at their home in northwest Washington, DC!
Meet sweet little Lola:
Terra shares, “Lola Irene Blodnikar was born on October 24, 2013, at Sibley Hospital in Washington, DC. Despite being 3 weeks early, she weighed in at a healthy and strong 6 lbs, 6.5 oz and was 19.5” long. We were just hoping for a healthy baby, which we got, but we were not expecting and were astounded by her beauty from the moment we met her.
We chose Lola’s first name because it’s beautiful and simple but rather uncommon. Neither one of us has known another Lola. Her middle name, Irene, is after her maternal great grandma, who had a huge personality and lived life to the fullest. We hope the same for Lola!
The past 6 weeks of learning to be Lola’s parents has been an adventure. People often ask us whether she’s easy or difficult. Since she’s our first, we don’t have a frame of reference to know, but we figured out early that milk is key to her happiness so we feed her as often as she wants, which generally keeps her happy. We are so grateful to live in the city so we can walk everywhere and make the most of our time off with her. Lola is out and about with us every day, taking walks, running errands or doing lunch dates. Sure, we also have the dirty diapers and sleepless nights, but it’s worth it, and we’re already really excited to see how much she’s grown and changed in these past 6 weeks, including her latest trick, smiling!”
This one is my favorite. What a beautiful family!
Congratulations to the happy family!
