< that hair >

Remember this girl? She is just growing up, and it is killing me. So adorable! And can you believe that hair? And you know what? Her personality is even more vibrant and adorable than her appearance. I love this girl. So glad she's a part of my life.

< sweet, sweet >

This little boy was as sweet as they come. Seriously, no fussing, no crying. And I like to let a newborn kind of move around as they would naturally, so I do minimal posing. Just enough to start them off in a certain position and I love to watch what they do with that. But this boy didn't move. He stayed there and stared at me with his beautiful big eyes like it was the most comfortable thing in the world. I had so much fun!

What a beautiful family. Congratulations!

< family love >

One thing I like to do as a photographer is to try to pay attention to the mood or feeling of a session and follow where the magic is going to happen. I guess it sounds a little weirder when I write it down than I thought. But I really believe that there are magic moments waiting to be captured, even in a slightly artificial set up like a photography session. There are always relationships that are authentic and love that is sincere.

Since every moment with a newborn is magical, and this family is so fabulously close, it was easy to capture those moments in this session. But something incredible happened when we sat the older siblings down with the baby. More magic, maybe? I don't know how else to describe it. I think the photos will do all of the talking for me. Hopefully.
