I was over the moon excited to photograph an in home newborn session for Molly, Kyle and big brother Liam. Last fall, I met Molly right when she first found out she was expecting sweet Dax. It was mini-session season and she took some amazing photos of me and my family out on my Dad’s farm. Did you see our Christmas Card, that was one of Molly’s photo, it was the best. I loved photographing her family of three but having this chance to photograph her amazing family of four was such an honor. I can not tell a fib, it may have been a bit intimidating to photograph another photographer for her newborn session but, Molly & Kyle were so chill I lost my butterflies right away.
Liam is the best big brother too! He is all about helping and feeding his little brother. He also is experiencing those tough new big brother growing pains too. I mean who wants to spit attention anyway! 😉 Kyle and Molly were so patient and never stressed over his bits of grouchy big brother behavior. I know as parents, we want our kids to ‘be good’- whatever that means, but his feelings were real and boy does he have that dinosaur ROAR sound down pat! I think Molly, Kyle and I all had to turn our heads at one point so as not to giggle at his sweet anger.
I just love that rainbow playlet in the background. Those yard toys are the BEST for mom’s with a toddler and a newborn. Liam and Kyle were so sweet playing around the yard together. Simple moments with bubbles, swings and summer sunshine will never – ever grow old.
Doesn’t this just sum up the life of a brand new big brother… It might be a ruff couple of days for a while Liam, but I have a feeling you and Dax are going to be swing so high together in no time!
I loved capturing photo’s of Molly with Dax the most. Mom photographers sometimes forget to step in front of the camera and boy do our husbands have the best portraits with the babies EVER! This photo is priceless and it isn’t on a self timer or a selfie in the bathroom mirror!! ;p
Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your in home newborn photography session. I just loved getting to know your family of 4 so much! Please email me if you would like to set up a session of your own sometime soon!
