I had the good fortune of documenting a slice of a day for this beautiful family back in June (you can see their blog post here). Their sweet little boy finally joined the family a couple weeks later, and I was holding my breath waiting for the call to come visit!
There is something so magical about watching a family, whether it’s a family of 3, or 4, or 10, welcome a new baby into their lives and routines. I get a special joy knowing that I was able to freeze those little moments, because as a parent, it’s shocking how quickly you forget just how TINY babies are! I watch parents post proud photos of their baby weeks after visiting them, and I’m stunned at the changes in baby <3
Baby K is soft, and sweet and deliciously wrinkly <3 He has the most adorable, tiny knees, and big beautiful eyes. The best part, though, is he has a crazy fabulous and adoring sister.
The sound from this bowl was so incredibly soothing. I love to see clients include rituals that are so special to their family in their sessions <3
Well hello there bright eyes!
This little girl has so much character packed into her tiny body. I could watch her all day. Plus she is such a big helper.
It’s not always easy to go from the one and only to part of bigger family. I know that a mama’s (and daddy’s) heart just grows bigger, and there is more than enough love to go around, but when you’re small, the changes can be hard sometimes.
I cannot possibly tell you how much I love that this mama let me capture her nursing baby K. No matter how you choose to feed your baby, it’s such an amazing connection, and one I miss now that my littles are bigger. I’m so glad she will have these images to hold on to when baby is bigger.
Character, right? Awesome.
Mama will always have time for her baby girl.
I love seeing how proud this daddy is.
Haha, I love this. Music is such a HUGE part of this family. Baby K will be rockin’ out soon, I’m sure.
This is probably my favourite image from this session.
Never a shortage of fun here 😉
The perfect way to end the session – a quiet, sweet moment between mother and son. This little boy is so lucky to be born into such a beautiful family.
Welcome to the world little one <3 Enjoy your adventure!
