Gosh I love this family. I met them when we did big brother’s newborn session and I have photographed them several times since. With these two so close in age, it feels like I have seen them every few months over the past couple years (probably because I have!).

Mom was nervous about baby girl’s newborn session because her nursery was going to be basically the same setup as her big brothers nursery was (plus a little pink). I assured her that regardless of the room setup, the session would look and feel different because she now has a toddler in the mix. Big brother kept us on our toes. He wanted to play. And then he didn’t. And he definitely was not so sure about his new baby sister. And you know what? All of that is ok.

Life with two babies close in age is a little messy. It is definitely less than perfect. And it is hard. But it is also amazing and rewarding and SO full of love. I am thrilled that I was able to capture this sweet family during the early days as a family of four.

Just like the last blog, this is another family that asked me to photograph their new baby in the hospital and also at home. I LOVE getting to do both of these sessions. Every time I do this for a family, they are always so surprised by how quickly a newborn changes. Before booking I am often asked if having both sessions done is too much, or overkill. “Won’t the baby be the same just in a different space?” I respond by assuring them that the sessions are both valuable and they will not regret doing both. And every single time, when I arrive at their home for the lifestyle session, the parents tell me how much baby has changed and how glad they are to have had both sessions.

A first 48 session is so unique and a time that you will always look back on as magical and sacred. With a lifestyle newborn session, the baby is a bit older and has begun to fill into themselves. The parents are starting to get into a routine and have gained some confidence. The two sessions are truly unique and such a nice compliment to one another.

For this family, I was capturing their first baby. Which is always SO special and such an honor. When I arrived at the hospital for their first 48 session, their daughter was only a few hours old. She had been born in the early morning hours and I arrived around lunch time. Y’all, mom looked AMAZING. I was floored. I did NOT look like that within hours of having any of my babies. Not. Even. Close.

When I arrived at their home a few weeks later, as I said before, baby had changed. Not only was I there to capture her changing, I was there to capture them as a family in the space that is most comfortable to them. There is nothing like being at home with your first born. I have such fond memories of those early days with my oldest. I had slowed down for the pace of my working career. I was getting into a parenting rhythm. I remember those lazy days of exhaustion and laundry and naps and figuring out nursing. I will never forget those moments in our first home.

This family welcomed sweet baby number three last fall and I was lucky enough to capture them in the hospital and then a few weeks later at home. When I first met them at the hospital, their baby boy was a day old. I got to capture all the details of newborn newness that I love. Halfway into the session, big brother and sister were brought up to the hospital and I was able to capture them meeting their baby brother for the very first time. It was such a sacred moment to get to participate in.

A few weeks later, I went to visit this family at home to capture their new life as a family of five. Every time I walk into a clients home, things are different. No two sessions are alike. I never know what to expect. It is challenging but I love it. When there are older siblings involved, newborn sessions are always a little wild (just the way I like them). We played. We took breaks. We laughed. We danced and I was even given a special performance on “stage” from the older siblings. It was a really fun morning and I left this session feeling so privileged to have been given the opportunity to capture the early days with baby number three.
