I was so excited to be able photograph this sweet 10 day old baby girl. She was absolutely precious and looked so much like her big sister. It was even more fun because her big sister got to come along and sneak into some of the pictures. Big sissy was so excited to have a little sister and right before she turned the BIG 3!
When booking their session I found out that her mama's aunt was the one who first taught me photography in high school. She played a very instrumental part in the photographer I am today. She was a fantastic teacher and always pushed me to go beyond my little box of thinking. It is a small world!
We started out across the street in a quiet backyard along the water. It was a beautiful morning and we found the perfect shade under a nice big tree.
We then moved into the studio once she had fallen asleep. After picking out headbands and wraps we snuggled her in and got to posing. She did a fantastic job on her first photo shoot.
Big sister had fun playing dress up while baby girl was taking a feeding break. It is nice sometimes to have siblings there while the new baby takes a break. It gives us a chance to really put them back in the spotlight during such a big transition where they no longer have it all to themselves.
Is this not the most adorable doting sister ever? I think they are going to be the best of friends.

Introducing sweet Piper. A little miracle baby and a real fighter. Her mam longed for her and what a sweet present when she finally got to hold her in her arms.
She got an extended stay at the hospital. Not too sure it was all the luxury of a 24 hour spa she thought it would be, but she was a real fighter and made it home.
I had the pleasure of snuggling with sweet little Piper at 22 days new. She did such a great job... sleeping... tough work I know. Just a precious little sweetheart. She also has 2 older cousins who were super excited to welcome her to the family.
More additions coming to this family soon. Stay tuned.
