The Miracle Triplets

These triplets were born at 25 weeks old!  Yes, just barely half of their gestational period!

They are now only 9 weeks old, though they were born in December, 2008.  Such precious miracles of life!

Welcome home, Alivia, Lucas and Sophia!


“One, two, three, okay let go!” (This photo was taken the moment before the one above!)

With 3 newborns to photograph, we had to really get the timing just right.  And I say “we” because it usually took 5 of us adults (me, the parents and the grandparents) to take photos of the triplets!


This is Sophia, who just came home from the hospital this month.

I find it utterly peaceful to watch a baby sleep.


This is Baby Alivia with the dreamy eyes.

She’s going to break some hearts with that gaze when she’s older!


The greatest gifts.

Sophia and Alivia were wearing their tutus while sitting in these baskets, but the tutus inside the baskets looked more like tissue paper inside boxes!  Ha ha.

But how true that is… these babies are the greatest gifts!


Baby Lucas came home first.

He is now 3 lbs heavier than his sisters!  He has the chubbalicious baby rolls that I love.


The gorgeous mom with her precious babies.


And I’ll end this blog with some fun ruffles-on-the-bum shots…

    Annie these look amazing!!! Great job! I’m so excited to see the rest of the photos 🙂 Thanks so much for getting the sneak peek out so quickly. The one of Sophia sleeping is just precious, babies in baskets…so cute…oh & I love how you captured the babies all calm and curious in the photo of me with them (absolutely love this photo). I can’t wait to see the family of five photos. Thanks for all of your patience today. Three babies is a lot of work but they sure did better then I thought they would 🙂 Thanks Annie

    Lyla, your babies are incredibly precious! I really enjoyed photographing them and didn’t mind staying longer at all. I hope you’ll some good sleep soon. I see that you made your comment at 4 am!!! When they’re a bit older, maybe when they’re sitting up or learning to walk, we should do another shoot! It’d be amazing to get photos of their development. 🙂

    These pictures are priceless and long anticipated. The photography is superb. We have followed Lyla’s pregnancy and birth of these precious babies through her Aunt Ida Culliton with whom we work at Kaiser. Our prayers and thoughts have been with you all along. Congratulations to all of you!
