When you have a two year old at home and you bring home a newborn, sometimes you just have to throw the two year old up in the air. It’s necessary, people. #andalsosuperfun
The sweetness that big sister A feels toward her new sister T is just palpable – I adored it…
She is pretty perfect:
The intensity of the sisterly love was pretty hilarious, actually ;)
Always wanting to squish and squeeze her… (But actually, T didn’t seem to mind a bit.)
Wonderful to see you guys again – so excited for another Baby’s First Year package with you!
I got to meet three new babies this past weekend – I love it when that happens. Lots of weekends I’m going back and seeing older kiddos, but this weekend ended up being baby-tastic. Just my style.
This little beauty and her amazing gorgeous curls made me smile so much on Saturday. Look at her perfect cheeks! Those eyelashes!
She had such wonderfully varied expressions, I just adored it. Thanks so much for having me, guys.
Look at these sweet eyes! Loved meeting this little guy last weekend. Just dreamy.
this next one is just so hilariously sad – life sure does change for pups when babies arrive…
I was so thrilled to hear that these guys were having a third sweet babe, and meeting her was just wonderful. It was a hot day last weekend, and this sweet lady was only 12 days old. Her big sisters gave her tons of love – I think they’re pretty excited :)
With a four year old big brother and a 22 month old big sister, little new 2 week old N is getting lots of love. They really are extraordinary with him – just so loving. I really like the crazy family pictures from this shoot – just a little slice of what life is really like these days :)
When your best friend from growing up has her first baby, you just book a flight. And then you have such a great time visiting with her family and other friends that you totally forget to edit the pictures, and the holidays happen, and then it’s January, and then you’re not eating enough because you’re on a “cleanse”, so your editing seems to take forever… wait, but I digress.
I can’t even explain how much my heart burst when I met this little 4 week old person. I can’t wait to go back for pictures when she’s 6 months old. I adored every minute seeing you guys. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. I included a bunch of my wonderful host’s children at the end of the blog post too – so there’s loads of bloggy goodness if you click around below.
and happy 2013!
Met this little four week old cutie pie last weekend, and OK, you had me at Infant Santa suit. Come on now. Not to mention those long legs and arms and FEET! Love those sweet long feet. Almost as long as daddy’s finger. The one of him making his surprised face is cracking me up, too. And the last one, where Daddy is stroking M’s forehead with this new trick that soothes him to sleep? Perfection.
This little 3 month old cutie blew me away on Sunday – she was just full of grins and her dimples were perfection. Even when she rubbed her eyes with the universal sign for, “Um, I’m tired, guys” – she still held it together and even gave out a few more smiles.
Wonderful to meet you guys!
OK, hands down favorite from this session is this one of sweet little 4 month old M, as she makes her parents giggle almost as much as she’s giggling. Also love the one where her mom’s head is turned, and we see the back of sweet M’s head and little soft arm… The daddy kissing her when she was feeling a bit down is also a fave. The one where she’s crying is so tremendously sad, but it’s so strongly emotional – that one gets me too. It was such fun getting to know you guys!
Ooh, I was so lucky to get to spend some time with this little guy on Monday. He’s just four weeks old, and he’d just had a long drive back from the Cape, but he was an absolute trooper! He just had the best expressions. Can’t decide which of these is my favorite. I love the way he’s looking at his dad when he’s gripping his finger with his whole hand – just such a smile in his eyes. Also loving the mama and grandma shots we got – again, it’s that look in his eye, so adoring. And of course I had to get a dachshund licking pic – although this time the lick is for mom :)
Wonderful to meet you guys!
People will often tell me how great their two year olds are with their new siblings, and it’s often true – there’s this wonderful fascination a two year old has with the baby who’s joined the family. Their fascinated moments are often brief, though, and transition into more dangerous ones (squashing, poking… just general baby endangerment – all parents are familiar with it). So it’s up to me to capture those brief moments of fascination. This photoshoot was really fun for me because big 2 year old sister S (whom I met almost exactly two years ago for her newborn pictures) really loved investigating her new brother A. She was curious and loving throughout the session…
But we did get to spend time with just S at the beginning:
And then A joined us:
Grinning right away with Daddy:
And gazing adoringly at S:
And a lovely, gentle look at his mama. What a handsome boy!
We even got three generations of ladies:
With the blanket in her mouth – her most comforting lovey (which was purchased two years ago for her first photoshoot – I love stuff like that):
And one last squeeze of the hand before I let you go. What a treat!
The best part of this sweet little 5 week old guy is how engaged his eyes are in every picture, just adoring everything his parents do with him:
Even when he was VERY hungry…
And then he got a leeeetle sleepy…
But not before showing us a perfect pout:
Welcome little guy – so great to meet you all!
Sweet G was born just five days ago, and her big 17 month old brother D is already getting a kick out of his new role as big brother. (Except that apparently he refers to her as his new dog…)
And I had to show you a few color ones, since it’s that festive red holiday time of year :) And I can’t forget to welcome these guys into my elite club of families with two under two!
Ho ho ho!
These guys are card carrying members of the “two under two” club, with a bonus 3 1/2 year old thrown in! Busy, busy, busy. And so much fun energy!
20 months old and 6 weeks old. So much love.
There’s something about the lines in this photo that I love. The artwork on the wall and the bedspread kind of tie it all up in a nice bow for me, too.
Kinda love the mayhem in this one.
Love that dad made this face at/with J:
And so did Mom :)
Really fun to see you guys as always!
