This big brother and sister couldn’t be prouder of their new baby sister!

I have been photographing this amazing family for years and couldn’t wait to snuggle their littlest at her newborn session. In the lead up to this little sweetie’s session I was getting particularly excited because mom had so many great ideas for their session, including this super sweet skin-to-skin shot of just mom and baby. In those first early days after the birth of a new baby mom can spend countless hours with their baby on their chest. Capturing one of these moments together was so special and a beautiful memento to have from these early days together.

All of the cuddles this little girl got during her newborn session made it clear just how excited the whole family was to have her join their family. She is a lucky little girl to have such a great big brother and sister looking out for her!

Little G napped through her family and sibling photos but when she woke up part way through her session we took the opportunity to capture her bright, blue eyes. She had such a focused gaze for a one week old! I know mom loves these eyes wide open photos of baby so we were very happy she awoke from her nap.

I am so looking forward already to seeing this lovely family at their next session!
