As a mother of three, amazing kiddos, I feel a special something for momma's who come to me for newborn pictures of number three. That third baby is a game changer, in a good way. However number three can be a scary proposition for momma! Your outnumbered, outmanned, and some times outmaneuvered, be the demands and needs of three little people!
This family came to me last year for family pictures, and I am blessed to be able to document and witness the growth of the family from 4 to 5 this year. Sometimes, as a photographer, we know more about a couples new baby news than friends and family. When we are asked to take announcement, gender reveal and newborn photos' we have to keep a secret for that family. What an honor to have that knowledge and hold it safe. This family was one of several who came to me over the holiday season last year for Christmas pictures and wanted to have a special announcement for their holiday cards!
Finally the day came for Little Tyler to join the family, I was so excited to meet this little guy. I had been planning his newborn session for six months! Incorporating siblings into a newborn session can be a challenge. But these two were so enamored with their little brother they really cooperated well, and we were able to get some adorable shots of the three of them. Tyler, was wide awake for his solo act and so we had to alter my traditional poses for a bright eyed little wiggle worm.
Thank you to all the families out there who ask me to keep your secrets for a short while, and to all the mommas of three, I am right there with you. If you need some one to keep your secret, make an announcement, or photograph your newborn give me a call!
Here are a few outtakes from this little mans session, Enjoy!
