Angie and Andy welcomed sweet Lillian into their lives with open arms and hearts. This baby was immediately surrounded by love and after capturing her birth, I couldn’t wait to spend time with them again for her newborn photoshoot.
Lillian snuggled in quite quickly for me after a solid feeding, a nice warm room, and a sound machine. Angie as well as Maddi and Tyler (Lillian's two siblings) were home for the session while Andy was stuck at work though I know he so badly wanted to be there.
Angie told me that Lillian was sleeping relatively well, though Maddi and Tyler had differing opinions on just how much Lillian was sleeping verses crying. Ha! Nothing like older siblings giving their take on a newborn baby in the house.
One of my favorite parts of a newborn session is the details I can capture from their soft skin to their tiny baby skin rolls (and sometimes fat rolls with newborns!), their tiny fingernails, the silky newborn hair, and so on. It’s all so fleeting and something I never want new parents to forget.
Once we were finished with the posed portion of the session, Angie took some time to be with Lillian and snuggle in with her. It was so beautiful to see their bond during her feeding and to watch her lovingly look over Lillian with such awe and wonder.
Angie and Andy, I am so honored to have been a part of capturing your love story from your engagement, to your wedding, to your birth, all the way to your beautiful newborn baby girl. You have such a beautiful family and I know you are easing into your life as a family of five! Congratulations and thank you so much!
