Newborn babies are always a favorite to photograph, but this one seemed to be especially close to my heart. Two big brothers and one new baby sister all dressed up and ready for their newborn photography session just reminded me of my own little family just a short 9 years ago! I remember the excitement of finding out after two boys we were about to add a baby girl to our family, and I remember how dearly the boys looked at their new little baby. These boys were no different. They were adorable, and so in awe of her…they had fun cuddling up to her, kissing her, giving her tiny tickles and just being the best big brothers ever. Watch out, mommy and daddy…9 years have flown by for me, and very soon you’ll have 2 teenagers on your hands with a younger sister they will look after.
I was delighted to find out from mommy that the colors they have chosen for baby girl’s nursery were purple with white and green as accent colors. Such a nice, fresh change for pictures. I do a lot of neutrals and a lot of pink with baby girls, and it’s really great to be able to photograph a fresh color! I brought as much lavender as I possibly could find, from blankets to props to headbands and hats. It was so fun!
Baby girl was amazing through everything. We started with the family and the boys first…because as great as young boys are, they do tire quickly, and all they want to do is be able to play, right? So, then after those pictures we were able to focus on just the baby. She did amazing. At 5 days old she slept like a dream, and I was able to get through my set in record time. What a fun session!
