Little lady, two brothers- Lifestyle Newborn
This little lady is so lucky to have two older brothers. She has a built in fan club ready for her. The oldest was especially helpful. He is so big that he was able to hold baby sister all by himself. He did so ever so carefully. We talked about all of her adorable features and were able to just stare at her. Newborns add such a special spirit to a home. They add a peace and always remind me their is so much good in the world. I felt so grateful to be invited into this family’s home.
Since this darling little girl is the third child the atmosphere in the home was very laid- back. The parent’s took everything in stride. We did family photos first and then the boys went to the dining area to have lunch. One of the benefits of doing a session at home is anything the older kids need is just a room away. It’s always amazing to me that this little person wasn’t here a few weeks ago. Then she came and fit ever so perfectly into the home. She fills a gap in the home that the family never knew was missing.
One of the things I love to showcase in my newborn work is holding your babe. Images of me holding my children are so precious to me. It takes me back to the moment of being so close to them that I can smell them. Snuggling them right next to my chest is as close to them as I’ll get. I love the innocent intimacy between a parent and child.
Children all love to play. So, we take photos, play then redirect and take more photos. I love this image because it’s a little real life mixed in with the sweet and tender moments of motherhood. One minute the rambunctious three year old is jumping on the bed and then the next he’s snuggling with his mom and siblings. She’s a beautiful little lady isn’t she? The flowers are from Trader Joe’s (my go to place for flowers). I love watching little newborns with their eyes open. They look especially innocent to me all swaddled up with their eyes open. I have to admit while uploading these photos and seeing how cuddly and little she is I’m a little baby hungry.
