At Home With Three
It would easy to get overwhelmed or stressed when you have three little ones three and under and you have newborn portraits scheduled. (Oh, and see their maternity portraits here)These two just know their boys and what entertains them so the session really flew by easily. These two were absolutely adorable with their baby brother, and oh my, I just love the photos of their brother by himself in the end – so simple and classic. I am sure there is never a dull moment at their home, and that this crew of five has so much fun together. I feel like I was just at their home for their second baby boy’s newborn portraits. (And see the biggest brother’s portraits here) What a fun morning this was, and I love photographing family newborn sessions at home.
According to Mom..
What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? He’s tiny, is what I said when the Dr. got him out. He wasn’t really a small baby but my smallest and I knew that right away. After that when I looked at him I just thought how sweet he smelled and how glad I was that he was here!
What was your favorite part of our session together? I have 2 other small children and Becky is great about making it no big deal what they were doing. She was able to work with them and make them laugh and got some really good shots of all of us and of just my boys. I love being at home especially for my preschooler and toddler because they are in a comfortable environment and when we were doing pictures with my husband, me, and the baby the boys had plenty of other toys that occupied their attention. Plus I feel like being at home just captures us in our natural state.
How did you prepare the baby for our photoshoot? I made sure that he was fed and had a clean diaper.
How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous beforehand?Like I said this was my third baby and my third newborn session with Becky. I wasn’t really nervous or worried because I know Becky is so good at letting us have breaks when needed. So when we had to stop for me to feed baby I knew it was no big thing.
What would be your advice to someone having newborn photographs taken? Don’t stress! Babies are unpredictable and Becky is great about understanding that. But also be prepared…feed baby right before and give a clean diaper. It gives you the best chance at baby not being fussy the whole time. Have fun! My favorite pictures are the ones that show our family interacting together and my boys smiling and laughing.
Do you have any other children? How did they react to the baby? Yes! My boys are obsessed with their baby. They love to kiss him, hold him, and hug him. It’s so sweet to see the bond they are all building.
How would you describe your perfect Saturday as a family? Perfect Saturday would be a relaxing pancake breakfast and then relaxing at home together.
