On Sunday I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet family in a quaint town just north-west of Boston. Their home was a beautiful antique so perfectly preserved to work for the modern family but show off the charm and character of an older New England home. I was quickly greeted by new big-brother Ben who was so excited to tell me about his new baby brother, Everett!
Ben quickly warmed up and wanted to show off his trumpet playing skills and showed me all of his favorite stuffed animals. My favorite was a little life-sized hamster (so cute).
I always make sure the new older sibling feels totally included in family newborn sessions. This is such a fresh transition time for them!
I love capturing little detail shots of how tiny newborn hands and fingers are with their parent's hands! Someday it is sweet to look back at how much they have grown.
I absolutely love the composition of this image with their Massachusetts pillow, I loved how cute their home was decorated! Quintessential Massachusetts home and family!
It wouldn't be a newborn session without some time spent in the nursery. Everett's nursery is the cutest whale theme while big-brother Ben has an adorable elephant room!
Ben totally warmed up, started posing and jumping on the bed! I embrace monkeys jumping on the bed because it means adorable, natural smiles all around.
This was also the perfect time to grab a quick sibling shot while Ben was (sort of) sitting still! (Notice mom holding those wild feet down :) )
To wrap it, up I always make sure to get beautiful images of both parents on their own with new baby! I especially love to get a few extra of momma and baby - as a mom I know how frequently I'm behind the camera rather than in the front!
If you got this far, thank you so much for reading about this precious family session! Newborn Lifestyle Sessions are my absolute favorites. - Sarah
