Last weekend I had the opportunity to capture a family and their newest addition - who was just 5 days old! He was so small and fragile. It is hard to believe that my son was ever that small. They grow so quickly which is why I love newborn sessions. Baby L was so cooperative, too! He just napped and napped, and if he woke up, a quick snack and a little cuddle from mom or dad and he would drift off again!This mama is amazing. Despite having had a baby a few days earlier, she was doing so well. She was also so beautiful and serene. This is one of my favorite shots from the day. Even though Big Sister is playing around, you can still feel the calm of mother and her new baby boy. Tiny baby feet are one of my favorite things (feel free to break into song, here!). This little man could not have posed more perfectly for a close up of his feet!
Getting shots of siblings can be tricky, but Big Sister was wonderful. She was so excited to hold baby brother in her lap. I love how tender her hands are resting on him, and that she's about to give him a big kiss!
Thank you for introducing me to your newest little man in the house. He is so beautiful. Congratulations.
