Sweet, sweet babies. I have had so much fun photographing quite a few new babes throughout the past few months. This little lady and her family were quite the bright spot in an otherwise long and dreary winter (that I’m optimistically assuming is all but over, at this point).
This had to have been one of the most special hospital shoots I’ve had the pleasure of doing: I was almost in tears walking into the hospital room of these close friends who had just welcomed their fourth child, their first son, a Halloween treat indeed. (clearly I’m still catching up on some very overdue posts)
I’m fairly certain this family sufficiently spoiled me – I know I have never encountered such close and loving siblings before this one. And that’s not to exclude the littlest lady – she was all smiles for me as well. What a fun morning spent taking a stroll with this gorgeous, inside and out, family.
Though you wouldn’t have known it, when I had the pleasure of shooting this family last summer, there was a bun in the oven so I was thrilled to hear the little lady had arrived a few weeks ago. She’s got some big shoes to fill to catch up with her big sister but I think this sweet family has got it fully under control.
Third time’s a charm, right? Weather was not our friend the first two times we attempted this session – but finally, on a miraculous third occasion, we were gifted with gorgeous light and such wonderful moments together.
This little guy is super special to me since he’s one of my best friends’ from college sons. Sadly, our recent time together didn’t allow for a full shoot but I grabbed a few sweet shots of this guy and his mom… and couldn’t resist sharing.
After having been lucky enough to meet this little guy at his most new in the hospital, I loved spending the afternoon with this new family of three (or four, depending on who you ask… see the proud older puppy brother). The brand-new parents were so relaxed and took everything with their sweet little guy in stride… I only wish I had been so laid-back as a new mom.
Even though these hospital newborn sessions are the least planned, there is something incredibly beautiful about photographing an hours-old baby and his (or her) parents in the environment where they first met. This sweet little guy stole my heart with his adorably huge yawns and cuddly personality. Thanks, A family for letting me capture this glimpse of your family.
Mix a sweet family excited for an adventure in their new home (too many farewell sessions these days!) and some favorite costumes and boots and umbrellas on a suddenly rainy afternoon, and you’re certain to get one of the most memorable sessions. I felt like such a celebrity being followed around by my personal umbrella-holder. Thanks, R family, you will absolutely be missed!
You can’t help but love photographing a family who has such infectious energy and joy. This was definitely one of them. From the adorably chubby baby brother to his sweet big sister, and adoring parents, this family was so much fun.
