They Might Have Broken A Record
This big brother, as sweet as he could be, was just a magnet to his baby brother. I promise you that every newborn session is a little bit of chaos. I’m sure this Mama felt like it was a whirlwind and we didn’t get any photos..but they probably broke a record with all the sweet family images. (One family photo with a toddler is a miracle) Big brother was just so giggly + happy and loved being close to his brother. And OH MY GOODNESS, the cat. Like serious cuteness.
According to Mom..
What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? He’s so tiny! Our first was 9lb9oz, and Kian was 7lb5oz – so he looked teeny tiny and so fragile!
What was your favorite part of our session together? It was fun to see big brother Cyrus be so proud to show off his little brother and play with you! It also got me out of my pj’s and into “real” clothes for the first time in a while… which was a good thing.
How did you prepare the baby for our photoshoot? Didn’t have to do anything – he was the easiest one to prepare.
How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous before? It was great! I was worried he may not cooperate, but it ended up being really easy because the poses were very natural. After seeing what you could do with a very active toddler during our maternity shoot – I was not worried at all about the shoot with the newborn!
What would be your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken? Don’t stress about it. Maybe plan your outfit before baby comes, because after baby arrives, you may not have time.
Was there a sentimental item in your nursery that we photographed? The nursery is special because Kian is inheriting it from his big brother – so the whole room has a lot of memories from his big brother. Many nights have been spent rocking, cuddling in the grey rocking chair, and we look forward to many more with Kian.
Do you have any other children? How did they react to the baby? Any cute stories to share? Kian has a big brother – Cyrus. He loves the new baby, but is still learning to be gentle. I have told him that when Kian needs to eat and sleep so he can get bigger and bigger – and then they will be able to play together. So for a couple days – Cyrus would come into our room in the morning where the baby was sleeping and peek into his bed – and then ask me “bigger and bigger? Play trucks?” So I’ve had to explain that it’s going to take a little while longer for Kian to be big enough! But Cyrus keeps checking!
How would you describe your perfect Saturday as a family? SLEEP – just sleep. That would be perfect.
Any advice to other families picking our wardrobe or preparing for portraits? Find something your toddler will wear – you don’t want that battle when you’re juggling a new baby and getting ready for the photos.
