What a fun family! I was contacted by mom's sister who wanted to gift a maternity and newborn session, 'Belly to Baby' package, in celebration of their second baby girl. What an amazing gift!! They decided on in-home, lifestyle sessions, which were perfect for this family. I loved the casual, relaxed atmosphere in their home and it was fun getting to know them all during both of the sessions. I really enjoy doing the Belly to Baby sessions because it gives me a chance to watch the family and grow with the birth of their new baby. Whether it's their first child or their 'we-have-too-many-to-count' child, the family dynamic always changes when the newborn comes home and its really fun to capture those moments!
In the maternity session, mom really wanted to capture silhouette images of her belly and her toddler. They had a big, beautiful window that had gorgeous light to help backlight the images for her. These were some of my favorite images because of the closeness and intimacy captured between mom and her daughter.
For the newborn session, we used mom and dad's bedroom which was the perfect backdrop for their family photos. The casual, cuddly images were absolutely perfect to showcase the love and connection between them all. When it came time for big sister to take photos with Baby "L", she was cooperative and excited to lie with her baby sister for the photos. Plus, with a promise of a sweet treat at the end, big sister was eager to help out.
Baby 'L' has arrived!!
