I love to capture candid family life, especially when a new baby arrives and the family dynamics change. I like to think that years from now you will sit down with your children and retell their “when you were little” or “when you were born” stories.
I always say mothers are the family’s storytellers. We will celebrate and document every little thing our kiddos do. Yet, sometimes we wish we were included in some those candid moments with our children. When we do an in-home lifestyle story I will capture those treasured moments organically as they unfold. This family’s newborn story is filled with love.
You Are So In Love
You brought your brand new baby home. Now you are 4. You never felt more complete. Those first days were filled with overwhelming love.
The Big Brother
All of a sudden you look at him and realize he has grown so much since he met his baby sister. He now has so many new things to learn but you know he will do just fine. For the time being, let’s make sure we spend time together doing what he loves best.
Life will get a little chaotic at times…and that’s ok! I love capturing these messy, not-so-perfect moments.
One day he’ll stop playing trains but for now, let’s keep playing a little longer. He won’t remember the details, but he’ll remember the love.
Dad, you are awesome!
You are taking care of your family too. You play with your son while momma nurses your little one. You make sure she rests and take care of herself too. In those moments you are bonding with your tiny little one too. She is so loved!
Welcome Baby Margot!
Oh, your little fingers and little toes! We can’t have enough of your sweet and perfect little face! It’s time to make sure we don’t forget how tiny you once were.
Your big brother loves you! He will come from playing just to steal a kiss and make sure you’re ok! You’ll join him in play soon enough and probably fight over toys he won’t want to share but for now, he will just share the love he has received with you.
At-home newborn stories will celebrate who you and your family were and how you felt in those dazy days often lost in the daily routine. It is a “please time, slow down” so we can look back again at that time when they were still little. Make sure you don’t miss them!
