The end of March is not a very pretty time of the year when it comes to the great outdoors. The ground is pretty muddy, the skies are often dull and gray, and the trees are basically empty. And for a lot of sessions I typically give people the option of waiting until the weather is a little nicer, but when it comes to time sensitive things, like maternity sessions, there really isn’t any waiting because once that little one decides to make their entrance a maternity session isn’t really an option anymore, haha!
But luckily Bridget + Matt were completely on board for their late March session and we were able to mix in some outdoor and in-home photos to give some more range to their photos.
You really never know what you’re going to be greeted with when it comes to big siblings. Sometimes they are super keen on being a part of the session and other times they want nothing to do with it. Every once in a while you find yourself somewhere in between (for example, a grumpy toddler who will be in the photos but not be happy about it, haha!), but more often than not, it’s one extreme or another. I am just oh so happy (and lucky) that when it came to Baby Mackenzie’s session, Big Sister Aubrey was the former and was absolutely thrilled that is was photo day!
How is it already the end of February!?! I mean, I feel like the new year just started and yet somehow we are already two months in — it’s crazy. I mention this because I am oh so very behind on blog posts it’s not even funny. Luckily though, sessions have been going out on time so Isha and her wonderful family have had their photos for a while now. But I am finally getting around to sharing them with all of you, lucky ducks!
Sometimes I show up to my clients home for their lifestyle session and am instantly greeted by a cheerful toddler who wants to tell me anything and everything they can think of. Other times they want nothing to do with me and I have to pull out all my tricks right away to get them involved in the session. Luckily for all of us adults, Maya was definitely on that first team and ready to go for Baby Hayden’s newborn session.
I love lifestyle newborn sessions, but I love them even more when there is a big sister or brother involved because they are just so wonderful! And Big Sister Isabelle was definitely no exception. She was so excited to be a part of the session and was so good for her parts too! But of course, the star of the day was still Little Baby Amelia. And how could she not be, what with those big doe-eyes and sweet little face, she was such a little darling!!
