This was my second time working with this family and I was so excited to meet Sam. Sam loved to be curled up next to his mama. I love photographing those moments where they prefer that to anything else... because I really miss them with my own little ones. I loved how much his big siblings loved him. They kept sneaking little glances and touching his tiny hands off and on throughout the session. Siblings always add an element of real life to the newborn session, and I think that's perfect. There is nothing better than when a little real life sneaks into a family shot <3 They are my favorites to look back on. As much as I love getting a nice family posed shot, there is something extra sweet about having one like this to smile at as the years go on.
I loved working with this sweet family of four. Their sweet little girl was nearly two months old and seemed so strong and curious :) I loved capturing all of her little expressions and the love her big brother had for her. It was a beautiful February day, so we were even able to sneak outside at the end for a bit :)
It has been awhile since I've blogged but I've been excited to share this session since April! This session turned out to be one of my most favorite newborn sessions to date. I always talk/email with my clients a good bit before the session to determine what their goals are for the session. For this one, mom wanted to focus on alone shots of Henryk, very natural sibling interactions, and babywearing. We did the entire session on one bed, in one room. He nursed, we changed diapers, we played UNO, we talked about birth and babywearing. I adored the simplicity and how that allowed the focus of the images to be the newness of Henryk and the raw emotions of bringing a new baby into the family. I absolutely loved working with this family and it was fun to pull up these images again... it's really hard to believe how small he was :)
