So glad for the opportunity to photograph this little man! It was just less than 2 years ago that I photographed his older brother. Boy do they look alike! It was great to see them all again, and see how big brother has grown. He is going to be such a great help to his mom with the new baby, I just know it! This little one received a complimentary hair cut at the hospital. Mom and I agreed not to edit any of it out, it is afterall, an important part of his birth story.
I always include sibling, parent and family pictures in a newborn session. I believe it’s so important to show these relationships, it’s something that the family will love to look back on. The little baby, as he or she grows will love to see what their brother / sister / mom / dad looked like when they were just born. Some of my favourite photos in the world are ones of my mom when I was a newborn, so I make sure to capture these images for others. Some new moms are uncomfortable with their bodies that are still recovering from the trauma of child birth. I understand this, but please believe me when I tell you that it won’t matter at all in 5, ten, or twenty years! When you look at these photographs down the road, you won’t see the ‘baby’ weight, or the tired eyes…… you will see a glowing new mom holding her brand new baby. If not for yourself, do it for your babies!
