Welcome to the world, Ezra! I cannot describe just how much this little guy is loved in his family. From the moment I walked into the door of their home, I could feel the love for him. Big brother Noah was sitting with him in the living room, loving on him and speaking soft, quiet words to him. And while I was setting up my backdrop blankets and props for Ezra's individual photos, big sister Lydia was kissing and cuddling him the entire time. They just could not get enough of their new baby brother! It was so sweet to see older siblings be so in love with the new baby and want to help take care of him as much as they did. And they could not wait to take photos with him! They just snuggled right in and cozied up to him for their sibling photos. So adorable!!
For Ezra's posed newborn photos, mom decided on various shades of blues and neutrals. We settled on a variety of props to use, including a handmade knit blanket that mom's grandmother made special for their family. When I am preparing families for their newborn session, I always suggest including a sentimental item or special prop that we can use during the session as it makes their photos that much more unique to their family. We incorporated this little baby blanket into a prop set up with a rustic wooden bowl that mom picked out, which complimented each other perfectly!
I truly loved working with the Shriver family, photographing their newest baby and spending time with big brother and sister. It was so much fun watching this sweet family interact with each other and love on baby Ezra during the session. I am sure Noah and Lydia will make wonderful older siblings for Ezra, helping their parents with taking care of him and playing with him as he grows. They are already such wonderful older siblings!
