First I need to say thank you SO, so much for all the kind and loving comments on Isla’s birth story. Like I said, I was hesitant to post such an important and personal story but I’m so glad I did. Each comment truly meant so much to both me and Drew and we appreciate the support that all of you have shown us through the years, especially on the birth of our little Isla Rose!

Ever since I had Isla I’ve been living in a robe and socks with messy hair and no makeup. I wanted to dress up and have family photos taken close to Isla’s birth so we could capture our growing family while she is still in this tiny newborn stage. Thanks to my little sister Amy for coming over earlier this week and doing my hair and makeup for me so we could take these photos!

Love this little family of mine. I don’t know how I got so lucky!

  1. This looks so glamorous and beautiful. Sometimes you do need to get out of robes and socks and look fabulous. She is such a blessing. Your family looks beautiful.

  2. I afore the fact that for every post you have included Dasherboy, even after Baby Isla Rose arrive, Dasherboy is still very high on the list. I have witness from experiences in the past of other families they changed and treat their once beloved furry friend bad which then turn into being neglected, almost like non-existed when they welcome an addition into their family.

    I feel the love flowing out of these pages as you write. I’s the pure sincere love & passion that really makes this is all what love and loyal is all about. Keep up the great love you have! :)

  5. Wow!! Photos right out of a magazine… I love all the light coloring. That dress is GORGEOUS! Beautiful little family!! It’s okay to dress casual, you just had a baby!! No doubt, though, you’ll keep making time for yourself and dress up for you, do your hair and nails and everything for you…because it’ll make you feel good! xo!

  9. She is beautiful! Thank you for sharing your story with the blogging world. I’m sure it’s not always easy to open up your private life to strangers. Enjoy this time with your little one, as they grow so fast! Mine are 23 and 28 :) It’s a magical time, and no one will care about your messy hair and robe…soon enough you’ll be chasing her around the house :) Wishing you much happiness and blessings always!

  10. Sooo precious. I LOVE everything about these photos. So timeless. So classic. You are one very blessed woman.

  11. These photos are ethereal and stunning! Your family is gorgeous including your fur baby! There is no way I could have looked that good-even with someone doing my hair and makeup-less than two weeks after the births of my children, lol. I am so looking forward to watching sweet Isla Rose grow up by way of your pics. My mom’s best advice to me after my kids were born was, when they sleep, run, don’t walk to your bed! Xo

  12. Congrats!! I almost cried after reading Isla’s birth story. I have been following you for almost 2 years now but first time ever leaving a comment! Best wishes to you and your family!!

  13. Okay…these pictures are STUNNING! Your growing family is so cute and I’m beyond happy for you. Loved the picture you posted on your instgram of you in your closet holding Isla. TOO CUTE! Congrats again and thank you for letting your followers join you on your journey,

    Stay Styled,

  14. Love love love the pictures!!! Call me crazy but you can feel the love through the pictures! In deed you are so lucky sweet girl. Thank you for sharing :)

  15. I absolutely love your family photos! They capture the beauty, love, and joy of your family so perfectly! And you look so amazing in that gorgeous gown :) I really enjoyed reading your birth story, thank you for sharing it! It gives me a lot of inspiration for when I have my own little one in the future :) the photos taken during your labor & delivery are so special and I love the idea of creating those memories for yourself as well as for little Isla Rose to be able to see when she’s all grown up :) I absolutely love your blog, can’t stop and won’t stop reading & following. You are truly an inspiration! Thank you :)

  16. Thanks for sharing!! Such beautiful family memories to have. Loved the fact that Dasher was in the photos. God bless

  17. Stunning photos! You have such a beautiful family :)
    Thank you for sharing not only your birth story but these precious first photos of your little Isla. Wishing you lots of happiness (and as much sleep as you can sneak in).

  18. I started following your Instagram page about 4 months ago, and have SO enjoyed seeing your pregnancy style and your beautiful home + interior design. We are trying for a little one, and remodeling our home, so you’ve been a huge inspiration on many fronts. Congrats to you and your beautiful family, so happy for you guys! :)

  19. These photos are so incredibly beautiful! I love the timeless elegance of them. Isla is gorgeous. It still makes me smile every time that I see her name, as I suggested both when you asked for recommendations (although you may have picked it out already!). I hope you’re healing well and that you’re getting as much rest as possible. Xo

  20. I think it was very brave of you to share your birth story.

    Wearing a robe all the time is the uniform of the Mama of a newborn – don’t worry it doesn’t last! Enjoy every moment of it as you will be AMAZED at how fast she changes and grows.

  21. Congratulazioni Rachel e benvenuta Isla Rose! I just wanted to send many hugs to your growing family. Baby Isla looks gorgeous and I may be mistaken but for the moment she resembles also her daddy, at least in some pictures. You seem such a perfect mom! Enjoy this special moments and thanks for sharing with us this part of your life, love from Italy.

  22. Rach – such lovely photos! Congrats on your baby girl. Isla looks precious. Enjoy this special time in your life! xo,

  23. Gorgeous family photos and congratulations on the baby! I’m just half way through with my first pregnancy, super anxious to meet my little one :)

  24. Oh Rach, I’m just so thrilled for you!! These pictures radiate so much love and happiness!! I love how glamorous these photos are but they have a cozy touch to them because they were taken in your home and include Dasher boy! The pic of a Isla Rose with her precious little mouth in an “O” shape is the absolute cutest!! That gown is beyond incredible and it is perfect for you. You are just glowing. You are so blessed! Enjoy every single moment of these precious days in your robes and snuggling your baby girl.

  25. Love the photos of the 4 of you. So nice you included your fur baby too. She is adorable. So glad you and baby are healthy and home.Blessing to you all.
