I met up with C and A and their family at their house in late September for a Milton MA newborn photoshoot full of snuggles and cute big brother/little sister moments.
This session was a baby shower gift for Mama; her sister gave her a gift certificate at her shower last winter. What an perfect present to give a new mama!
A Milton MA Newborn Photoshoot
C is 11 years old and the best big brother to little A. He loved cuddling her, and he loved her toes, especially. But really, is there anything in the world as amazing as baby toes? I can’t blame him. C was so sweet and gentle with her, completely in awe.
It’s so fun to photograph siblings with an age gap like this, and C was so gentle and loving with A. He was big enough to pick her up, play with her, talk to her, help with her bottles, and generally make sure he was the best big brother he could be.
And of course, A herself was perfectly content to snuggle up, whether it was with C or her soft blanket. She looks so peaceful!
Real Newborn Moments
My favorite moment, though, was this progression of pictures here. Don’t you love this? Mama and Daddy are enjoying cuddling their sweet little bundle… and then oops-- Spit-up! I just love an action shot; it’s my absolutely favorite thing. And really—tears, spit-up, all that fun stuff that happens with babies… it's all a part of newborn sessions. I love being able to capture real moments like this.
This one isn’t an action shot, but it makes me smile every time. There is nothing like the look in Mama’s eyes as she snuggles her miracle girl, breathing in that sweet newborn smell and enjoying that feather-soft hair. Just precious.
Daddy was killing me, too—look at him taking time by the window to love on his girl. The way he looks down at her is filled with such quiet adoration.
The Whole Family Together
This huge stuffed monkey absolutely cracked me up. C thought it would be a great way to make A smile, and he was so right. I can’t get over her look of sheer delight (or is that a look of terror? hehe, I guess it could be either) when she saw C with that gigantic stuffed animal.
The whole family got in on this newborn photoshoot. Even sweet Lucky the dog poked her head into the family snuggles. My favorite images involve Lucky rounding out this big, happy family. Lucky got to take a nap in that bottom pic as everyone paid attention to the newest addition to the family. A is fortunate she’s got Lucky to look out for her too.
You all know I’m a sucker for little fingers, and A’s soft ears were just too much. The way she clenched her little fists so tightly showed that this little one was ready for anything. It’s amazing how much personality fits into such a tiny package.
Mama, Daddy, C and A - I loved meeting you guys! I’m so grateful I got to be a part of all the love and joy that fills your home. It was my pleasure to capture this Milton MA newborn photoshoot.
