There is nothing better about my job than watching families grow bigger over time so I was excited to photograph this brand new baby girl. The first time I met this sweet family it was on a freezing November day at a local Seattle beach. This bunch always looks so cute, and the session for this newest member was no exception. They have the cutest house that includes this amazing little room that they turned into a playroom for their oldest. I would have loved a little nook to play in when I was little.
As I say for all newborn sessions where siblings are present, you really never know what you are going to get. Sometimes it takes 30 minutes for them to warm up to the idea of snuggling with the new little bundle. Sometimes older kiddo surprise you and jump right on the bed and are ready to hold the baby! This older brother arrived home from preschool ready for his photoshoot! First, he had to do a bit of skateboarding and painting in his little nook! Good thing for me, it had great light!
Big brother was so excited to play trucks in the nursery with his new little sister. I love these images because you can see how tiny she is. One of the last photos we took of dad and daughter matching chin dimples!
