This session was really special. Identical twins Ellie and Clare were welcomed into this world after a long journey to parenthood for parents Matt and Kristina. To make it even more special, Matt is my cousin! I couldn’t be happier for this growing family, including puppy brother Toby. As the artwork above their cribs says, “Sometimes when you pray for a miracle, you get two.”
Baby Brooke is here! This little angel slept her whole session, just as tired and sweet as can be. She even grinned for the camera a couple times! Her puppy sister Lola was also sure that she wasn’t left out in any of the shots 🙂 I was lucky enough to have met Jill and Cory during their pregnancy announcement shoot a couple months back – they had just moved into my neighborhood and since we’ve formed a great neighborly friendship. They’re the sweetest family and I can’t wait to watch Brooke grow over the years during our neighbor hangs.
I love this newborn session for so many reasons. I was able to get beautiful classic portraits of everyone in the family the baby AND dogs – such a miracle! But there was also so much real life captured in this session. Big sister Ava was full of excitement and the beautiful chaos of this stage of life really shined in the photos.
