Almost two years ago, I had the privilege of photographing the birth of sweet Maybellee. It’s hard to believe that she is now a big sister! Momma comes to the Birth Circle of NW Ohio (hosted in our studio in Archbold) almost every month, so I was really excited to hear how the birth of baby #2 went! Everyone was eager to find out the gender and it was exciting to hear “It’s a BOY!” They had a Family Centered Cesarean this time and when they had a chance to recover a bit, I was lucky enough to have the whole family in the studio for some portraits!
Maybellee is so quiet and reserved and she seemed to always be that way. She wasn’t exactly sure what to think of her newborn brother, and she still hadn’t held him. Getting them close together for a portrait was a bit of a challenge, but I think we were able to get some cute images that their parents will cherish! I know I think these sibling photos are adorable!
After a few photos of the children, we let Big Sis go visit her grandparents, who live right down the road! It was a great chance to get some photos of the new parents with their little squish, and of course they were more than willing to snuggle close to their new bundle of love! Daddy was so proud to add a son to his family, and he should be! Being a namesake must be so exciting!
After some family portraits, I got to spend some one on one time with Charlie and my new props. A newborn, props, and a camera…. call me a happy girl! This was one of my first times using my brand-spanking-new newborn posing pillow, so it was fun for me to try some different techniques than what I’ve used in the past. I had also hand sewn a pair of newborn pants for this session, and I’m so glad that mom LOVED them! (You can see those in the family photo.) Yay for DIY, despite my lack of sewing skills! 😉
