Anyone who knows me or follows me on Instagram knows that I am so in love with the O'Neill family. I've known them for over a year now, but since Kellan is only 2, I've known him for half of his life!! How crazy! When Susan told me she was pregnant, I was so excited that I called my mom to tell her the good news. With the amount of time I spend with her family, I was so invested in this little baby. I don't have tons of little ones coming into my life, especially ones that are only 5 minutes away!
On August 24th Rory, Kellan's dad texted me this. Kellan was a big brother!!!!
The next day Susan told me their new bundle of joy's name was Declan Max. Fun fact: Kellan was almost named Declan! So since they were having a boy, they came back around to it after he was born. Max comes from Susan's mother, Maxine, who recently passed. There's no doubt in my mind that Declan will make Maxine so proud to share her name.
Kellan and his baby brother are so SO so loved by tons of family and friends. These boys hold a special place in my heart, and I was so honored to be able to photograph Declan in his first few days of life. It's families like this that make my heart so full of love. So here he is, Kellan's baby brother, Declan Max O'Neill!
