You guys may recognize the big sister in these photos from a big sister mini session that took place earlier in the summer. Yes! That’s sweet little Lexi who I photographed as a sort of “last hurrah before her baby brother or sister arrived.” Well, her baby *sister* has since arrived. And my gracious, what a sweet pair these two beauties make. I had a great time being the Lakeview Newborn Photographer for this photo session.
The family waited to find out the gender of their new family member until she arrived. As you can imagine, they were thrilled to meet their precious little girl. Actually, dad played football at Notre Dame, so naturally being dressed in pink tutus just fits. 😉 Don’t you think he pulls off “dad of two girls” beautifully?
On this particular day, the sunlight in their home really poured in and made for some beautiful photos. Lighting is always a bit of a question mark when I go into someone’s home, but we really hit the jackpot for this session. (We were even able to rope in the family dog for a few group shots!) Big sister Lexi couldn’t be a prouder or sweeter big sister. To top it all off, this sweet little squish has a full head of hair. (And her little chin dimple and bright eyes are just so captivating.)
Mattes family, thank you for choosing me to be your Lakeview Newborn Photographer. It was so fun to photograph Lexi this summer and then to turn around and have the opportunity to photograph you all as a family of four. You are such a beautiful family, and you have every reason to boast in your two, precious little girls. I hope these pictures are something you’re able to treasure for years to come as you look back on these early weeks you’ve had together.
