Adjusting to a new baby in the house can be rocky for everyone involved. The new baby is taking in their new surroundings now that they’re on the outside, mom and dad are adjusting to a new routine (let’s face it, adjusting to functioning on very little sleep), and when there’s already a sheriff in town, adjusting to the role of big brother or big sister can be quite a shock. Let me just say, this little brother is knocking it out of the park. This family made this Chicago Newborn Session a real treat.
I love being a Chicago newborn photographer for days such as these! It was an absolute pleasure to capture this sweet big brother, little sister duo! This toddler is a little charmer. I don’t think he took one bad photograph. It’s like he’s been training for this his whole little life. He loves on his little sister like they are the best of friends. It’s not always easy to get kids to act all warm and fuzzy with the newest addition, but this cozy Chicago studio newborn session was a breeze.
I’ll also say that second time moms are always fun to work with. They’ve let down their guard a little bit. They tend to be more relaxed, having given up preconceived notions on how things will go. They’ve lived through the realities of raising a small person and the unpredictability that comes with small kiddos. This mama was exactly that. She was laid back on styling and seemed to really savor the fleeting moments that we were capturing.
What a precious, budding little relationship these two have embarked on. Can’t you just see what a great big brother this lucky little lady has been given? Thank you, James Family, for allowing me photograph your precious little newborn in this Chicago Newborn Session. I could see throughout the entire newborn photo session that you’re cherishing every moment you have with your sweet children. I can’t wait to watch them grow to love each other more and more over the years.
