Intimate and organically styled family photography sessions are such a precious way to capture a budding family, and Rylee Hitchner has a gift for capturing a family as they truly are. Emily, Brett, and Lily are all so sweet together, and Rylee has been beautifully photographing their journey as a family over the years.

From Once Wed’s own, Emily Newman:

The wonderfully talented Rylee Hitchner recently took some family photos for us and I couldn’t resist sharing them on Once Wed. We’ve been so fortunate to have Rylee documenting our family from the very beginning when I was still pregnant with Lily.

When I look at these photos, I love how perfectly they capture this sweet time in our lives with Lily. Every day I am greeted with “Momma, I need to give you a kiss” and the affection doesn’t stop until bedtime. I’m amazed at how compassionate and loving she is at such a young age, and I treasure these moments because I know how quick these younger years fly by. Lily is almost three, and fills our life with so much laughter, love, and fun. Thank you to my gracious friend, Rylee, for gracing the walls of our home with such beautiful memories.
