I can’t even express how much I’ve enjoyed getting to know this family, who just recently welcomed a baby girl into their bunch! With two older brothers, Leo & Ralph, I think it’s safe to say that Sofia is already going to be well looked after. I have never seen siblings with so much love and adoration for a new baby of the house.. and the fact that the boys are already so protective over and in love with her is no surprise to me after having met them months ago and experienced just how helpful and sweet they are first hand.
After having first hung out with this family during a pregnancy session a couple months ago, I was really looking forward to coming back and meeting baby Sofia (who already looks so much like her brothers). We hung out at home for a few hours to capture some sleepy dreamin’ and then these 5 were sweet enough to meet me again on another morning at the park so we didn’t have to rush family time. Anyway here are but a few of my favorites, thank you so much again to this family for allowing me the pleasure of capturing Sofia’s birth story and I can’t wait to see you all again soon hopefully Stay tuned for more from their pregnancy session at home (oy I am so behind on blogging!).
Oh and a little Coldplay to really bring you to the feeling of my workspace today as I finished these images up.. (and I thought I should add to nevermind the actual lyrics of the song, I just love Coldplay!)
above: something so little as a toe curl can make an image for me.
above: at first I wasn’t sure how I felt about the above image.. but I’m not certain what my hesitation was about. It’s definitely one of my favorites, I love how peaceful Sofia looks sleeping soundly outside… the pinks against the greens..
above: vibrant and warm summer light is finally here again, hooray!
above: I think this is one of my favorites because, to me, it reflects the tenderness and softness that this mother has for her children. These are the things that inspire me during a session to reach in and capture ‘something.’
above: love… love… LOVE this image. Sofia receiving her first flowers
above left: Listening to Coldplay + putting this blog together + Ralph’s big smile and arm around Leo = big smile on my face
above: I’ve never worked with siblings who have had such a strong desire to love on and protect their baby sister like these two brothers.
above: Thirty little piggies.
above: while editing these I realized that in the image folder were pictures of a partial eclipse that happened the day of this session. It literally lasted for but a few minutes, and I almost forgot that Vasili had taken pictures of it. Love him for taking these and I’m thinking they might even be a really cool end to this family’s birth story album.. :)
