This sweet little one’s big brother was just so adorable at their session. Don’t you just love the image of him mopping the floor? I love capturing siblings in their rooms or around the house during a newborn session.Two year olds add so much energy to a newborn session and we really just kind of let him run the show. They are such a sweet family, and this sweet baby girl’s nursery was just gorgeous. I also loved the sentimental items in their home and the gorgeous smocked dress. I loved this session so much!
What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? I was anxious for Scarlett’s arrival, because all I wanted was for her to be healthy! When I first saw her for the first time I had a rush of relief that she was a healthy, beautiful baby girl. I told her we would be best friends!
What was your favorite part of our session together? My favorite part of the session was how calm and easy going Becky was with my 2 year old Cruse! I love having the newborn sessions at home because we move around at lot and it will always be a memory of what house we lived in.
How did you prepare the baby for our photoshoot? How did I prepare for the baby photo shoot, ha! I was so thankful for Becky’s stylist, she suggested on what we all should wear and I immediately ordered everything. Being a new mom of two getting us all dressed was a little stressful but we managed!
How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous beforehand? I am pretty laid back so I was not nervous, and I already knew my 2 year would do that exact opposite of what we told him. However Becky was still able to capture beautiful pictures.
What would be your advice to someone else getting newborn photographs taken? To expect the unexpected, and everything will be ok!
Did you have a sentimental item at our shoot? If so, what was it and please share why it was such a special item for you.Scarlett wore one of my dresses that my mom smocked when I was a baby. Scarlett is the first granddaughter on both sides of our family, my mom as been waiting many years of a little girl for her to pass down all of my sister’s and I dresses. I will love these pictures forever for mainly this reason.
Was there a sentimental item in your nursery that we photographed? In Scarlett’s nursery there are two picture hanging on the wall that belonged to both of her great grandmothers.
Do you have any other children? How did they react to the baby? Yes Cruse is 2 and is enjoying giving his mommy and daddy a hard time about his arrival of his sister! My favorite picture is of Cruse with his hands over his eyes while Scarlett is just content of life!
How would you describe your perfect Saturday as a family? My perfect Saturday would be to sleep past 7:00 am! Enjoy a nice breakfast and then be outside playing, bike riding etc. enjoy a nice afternoon nap. Then hang out on our patio while the kids play.
Any advice to other families picking out wardrobe or preparing for a session? To stay neutral and simple, whatever you feel comfortable in. I really enjoyed Ericka’s suggestions!
