This particular session was one I was extra excited about. I've known this family for 5 years now, when I first met mom and dad when they were expecting their oldest son. I too was pregnant with my first daughter at the time. I had them slated for a newborn session about 6 weeks after my little angel was born. As life would have it, things didn't work out as we had planned. A few days after I brought my new baby girl home, this couple welcomed their little one about a month early. Thankfully everybody was well and I was able to do his shoot only a few days postpartum myself. He was my first newborn after becoming a mama and I will never forget it. I've watched him grow these past few years and when I found out he was having a baby brother last year I was so thrilled for him and his parents.
We had planned that I would come to the hospital after baby brother's birth last month to capture the two boys first encounter. I told my husband the night before how excited I was to get to see this family the next day. This was going to be such an amazing experience, and a shoot in the hospital I don't typically do and was excited about. But that night I got very sick with the Norovirus and was unable to be there for their special moment. I was beyond bummed, and they were so understanding. Thankfully I was well for his newborn session and we got some amazing images. My favorites are the ones of the two boys on the white bed. Mom specifically requested these shots and they are truly heartwarming!
Here are a few of my favorites from their wonderful session.
