As a former member of the 2 Under 2 club, I can remember the way it felt to bring home a new baby while still caring for your first baby. Simultaneously exciting and wonderful and scary and exhausting and overwhelming… the fact that I remember it so well made this session very dear to my heart. Well, that and the fact that Lauren said to me at the very beginning how much she loved my relaxed approach to photography and had been looking forward to this session for so long. Yessssssss! Music to my ears!!!
I know we’re going to create awesome photographs together when my clients can tell me they’ve actually been looking forward to their session. Coming into the whole thing with excitement is key! I’m not saying you can’t also feel nervous and/or stressed because that’s certainly very common - hello wildcard little kids who can say/do/eat/destroy anything at any moment!!
BUT! If at least one of the many emotions prior to our session is excitement, we’re in really good shape!
I’m so happy to have been invited into this family for a morning and to have gotten to document the blossoming love for the newest member of the family. From personal experience, I know these first weeks home with a new one, plus one are a COMPLETE BLUR. It makes my heart happy to know we bottled up some of these early moments for the future. <3
