I met this lovely family through a referral. I’m not the only Evanston newborn photographer, so I’m grateful when my name is passed along. They recently moved from NYC and are still adjusting to life outside of the big apple. The wife is an ER doctor, and I spent the majority of the session hearing the most unbelievable stories. She had to go full nights with no break… can you imagine? I mean pregnancy is hard enough! The emotional stress alone would be tough as a doctor but to add on the physical component sounds incredibly exhausting. I have so much respect for people in the medical field.
This newborn session was held at my lakeview studio. This pretty momma dressed perfectly in this BCBG dress. The color was the perfect combination of femininity and texture. It also flattered her beautifully after delivering a baby two weeks prior. The little girl was such an angel. She loved on her little brother when she was supposed to, smiled when asked, gave kisses and just enjoyed herself. She was such a delight. You never really know how the toddlers will do when welcoming a new little sibling. This little lady knocked it out of the park.
What was completely surprising was the amount of hair this little itty bitty boy had! Just look at those thick dark locks. Why is it that the boys always seem to get the best hair and longest eyelashes. He slept like a rockstar for the first hour and then after eating seemed to have other plans. We spent the better part of the second hour trying to get him back to sleep. It’s funny how unpredictable these little two week old beings are. Even though he put of a fight in the end, the images captured are treasures that this family will have forever. The sibling images are some of the best I’ve taken. Enjoy!
