So let me tell you about ordering bananas on Amazon Prime Now. If I order bananas online, it’s usually been through the Harris Teeter online shopping I think, where you add each banana individually. Somewhere in my life I have ordered bananas individually online – ha, I just know it! I was kind of in a hurry the other day (I order all my Mac Passports usually from prime now. When I’m working and I run out of hard drive space, I need one ASAP) so I’m sure I was like what else do I need, oh a bunch of bananas so 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or something like that, and BOOM! 6 or 7 bunches of bananas appeared at my door a few hours later. Now a friend of mine had this happen a long time ago and I remember her telling me about all of the banana bread she was going to make, so it looks like I’m going to be doing a lot of baking in the next few days! Banana muffins + banana bread for everyone! (And thank you Jen for bringing over that awesome gluten free sugar free banana muffin the other day, I think I’m going to need the recipe!) I’m 0-2 this week if you read about my fight with coconut oil here.
So back to the topic of this sweet newborn session. I first met this sweet family at their newborn portraits for their first baby girl. We’ve had so many mini sessions together, and so it was so awesome to see the two sisters together. She was just ecstatic to kiss her baby sister – it was adorable! All the smiles you see are right after a big kissing sound! Their parents are just so laid back and go with the flow, and that makes for such a great session. Big sister ate a lot of raisins, her daddy read a lot of Goodnight Moon, and we all laughed a lot! Super fun to photograph these four and was thrilled to capture their newborn portraits.
According to Mom…
What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? Relief that she was okay and joy that my labor was over. And all that hair!
What was your favorite part of our session together? Her big sister had a lot of fun and enjoyed taking pictures with her new sister. The raisins helped.
How did you prepare the baby for our photoshoot? Mani/pedi, blowout, glam squad – the usual.
How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you nervous or worried beforehand? I trust Becky to get good shots no matter what happens in real life, so I wasn’t that nervous. It turned out great!
What would be your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken? Relax.
Do you have other chilren? How did they react to the baby? Normally Giuliana is overly affectionate to the point of injury with her sister, but she did a great job at the photo shoot!
How would you describe your perfect Saturday as a family? No one is sick, we eat pancakes and play outside.
Any advice to other families picking out wardrobe or preparing for a session? Ask Little Apple Styles and invest in a good pair of maternity jeans.
