Welcome Stella Elizabeth Tiek!!

March 2, 2012

We are so excited to announce that Michelle and her husband Brandon recently adopted a baby girl!   Stella Elizabeth Tiek was born on February 12, 2012 at 9:02 a.m. and was 6 lbs., 13 oz. and 19 in. long.   She was placed lovingly in Michelle and Brandon’s arms by her birth mother in Texas on February 14.  What an amazing way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!!  Brothers Sam and Will are so excited to welcome their baby sister.  As many of you know, Michelle and Brandon are passionate about adoption (son Sam was adopted from Guatemala 6 years ago) and they sponsor several children an orphanage in Guatemala called Casa Bernabe.

As you can imagine, Stella has become Michelle’s new muse for her newborn portraits!  She is such a sweet baby and makes a beautiful subject!
