Look at this beautiful baby girl and look at all that hair! Baby C came to visit me a few weeks ago along with her big brother, mom, dad and grandmother. I first met this family about 2 1/2 years ago when they were pregnant with their son. It was one of my favorite sessions, and still is. Mom and Dad are both gorgeous and have matching wonderful personalities. We instantly clicked and their session was a breeze. Big brother’s newborn session was also a breeze. He had slept like a champ. Fast forward to 2017 and the sessions went a little different this time around now that we had a 2 year old toddler to contend with. He was a man on the move for the maternity session. When I say we couldn’t get him to slow down, I mean we couldn’t get him to slow down. We could barely get dad in the pictures as well since he was the one chasing him. Needless to say this made us a bit nervous about sibling shots once baby sister arrived.
We were right to be nervous! Sibling shots were definitely a bit of a challenge. Big brother wanted nothing to do with them and was up and running away. As a last resort we busted out the iphone and played some Lightning McQueen and luckily that caught his attention enough that he sat still and let us get a few shots. Success!
I thought the newborn part of the session was going to be the easy part. I was wrong! This little princess had other things planned. She was way more concerned with staying awake and trying to find out what little brother was up to. She was having no part of sleep. We waited about 2 hours with her and still she wouldn’t give in. Finally we called the session and decided to try the next day instead. I am so glad we did! She came in the next day and was already sleeping, and she left that way. She let me go through a ton of poses and got some amazing shots! I couldn’t be happier!
