YOUR BABY IS NOW A BIG SISTER

So here is another everyday beautiful gallery of photos – meaning not quite full official session – just me visiting with a new friend and deciding to bring my camera along because my new friend has a ten-day-old newborn and honestly, I just can’t not take new baby photos, I love newborns so much.  I was getting some major flashbacks, because this baby is number four for this family – and since I have four, I remember very vividly the days when my own number four came home.

SPRING ARRIVES

Spring is the perfect season for babies, right? It’s finally warm after a long winter (bundled up and pregnant – ooh, believe me I know the feeling) – finally sunshine arrives in it’s burst of beautiful. Little Ms S arrived at the perfect time and I was so happy to capture her one week old birthday in this family’s Old City loft. The walls of this gorgeous loft just call out spring too – with window light and bright colors on every wall – the perfect backdrop for welcoming new sister, who is destined to bring trouble to her big brother.

MEETING MISS BRYNN | Newborn Video Slideshow

This is why I am a documentary photographer, friends – to capture moments like the very first meeting of big brother and little sister.  It’s about as authentically awesome a moment as you get – magical – like a wedding.  Everyone in the room is teary at how beautiful it is. Mom and dad are incredulous at how huge their first baby now is in comparison with the newest little one.  Big brother is wondering a little bit at what the fuss is all about.  Little miss is about as little as they come.  And beautiful and true – and seriously – this is why I am a photographer.

INTRODUCING VIDEO FUSION SLIDESHOWS

One thing that I am working on to eventually add to clients, both newborn and family, who are at my All of ‘Em tier of packages, is a video fusion slideshow – where I take my favorite images from your session, add some video, a licensed soundtrack, and put them all together for you into a video hopefully you can pass along forever.  Trust me, when they are 12 and smelling like either sweaty locker room or AXE body spray, you will stumble back onto this slideshow and you will fall over in gooey sappy happy feelings remembering when they were so little.

MR. C & HIS FAN CLUB

This darling boy has an adoring fan club of sisters who are totally loving their new brother — I can’t tell you how much this house was abuzz with the energy and joy of HE’S FINALLY HERE!  What I really love about in-home newborn lifestyle shoots is the ability to spend some time with each kid, and capturing some of each personality in your home.  Yes, your new one will be the star of the show, but some of the story is how everyone else is easing into the new transition too.
