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.

This lil' man and his mama and daddy came to see me when he was just 10 days new. He was such a sweet little guy and did perfect for his first photo shoot. We started off the session by picking out hats, blankets, and baskets. There is no denying he is his mama's boy.
That full head of hair was just too adorable. It didn't matter what pose I put him in, he just was so content.
I have never had a baby stay awake for his entire newborn portrait session, but this little guy wanted to keep an eye on me the entire time. Every time I thought he was falling asleep, he would trick me and open his eyes right before I released the shutter. I caught a few shots of him with his eyes closed, but he was only fooling me. So cute!
Is this not the cutest little lion you've ever seen?
Of course, the last few images he decided to fall asleep. Pure sweetness!
