When I get ready for newborn sessions, I don’t just pick out hats and headbands and lay flowers into buckets, I make sure the main seeable section of my home is bright and shiny and relaxing. Usually a sleepy blend of essential oils is diffusing and my favorite soft pop hits are lightly singing through the air. When I have older siblings arriving, I make sure to greet them first and introduce myself and see what kind of fun stuff they’re into. Lucky for my client’s big brother, my younger son, Zac just recently got very into trains, so I was ready when he told me he loved Thomas the Tank Engine. I pulled out my son’s box of train tracks and blocks and I dragged his train track rug out of his room. I knew we would be good to go with little sis as big brother played quietly (occasionally peeking in to see what was happening in the studio!) Not only was he great behind the scenes, but James was SO charming with Elizabeth when it was his time to shine, I honestly couldn’t pick a favorite – as you will see! This whole family was so sweet and I always feel it is a true honor to photograph a family within those precious first few weeks. Get your baby fix below!
I can’t wait to see you all again!
