Maggie Newborn / by Ally Willix

These images have special meaning to me. Sweet Maggie is my cousin's daughter. Her dad is Adam is my cousin and we've grown up together. He's exactly 11 months older than me and we're the two grandchildren that have carried on the red head gene on the King side of the family. I have looked up to Adam for as long as I can remember. He's always been my role model because of his faith, his strength, and the way he selflessly loves others. When Karleigh and Adam met I couldn't have been happier for him. Karleigh is the perfect match for Adam! She is confident, has a strong faith, the voice of an angel, and has felt like family from the moment I met her. 

One of my favorite memories from our own wedding was during dinner when Adam and Karleigh told us that their family would be growing the next spring! Bobby and I were both overjoyed for them. Sweet little Magnolia Carolynne King was born on June 18th! It was such an honor to be able to come into their home and photograph Maggie in her first week of life. She was so tiny!! Karleigh and Adam make such amazing parents, and I'm so happy I'll get to watch Maggie grow up and blossom into a beautiful woman.
