I was so excited to see my friends and get newborn portraits when their sweet baby girl was just 8 days new! This family is so cute, and so much fun….we had such a good time getting maternity photos before the big arrival….big sister was a show stealer then, and nothing had changed when I visited at her house a few weeks later. Except now she was a big sister! Very proud, very curious, and I think a little bit protective as well. We did the photos right in baby E’s nursery, and big sis parked herself right outside the door, watching most of the shoot from there. I think she would have preferred to right up in my business, helping (?) me and getting her hands on everything, but mom kept her a few arms lengths away. I still heard all the hysterical questions that arise from a 2 year old when she is watching her sister get photos.
Why is naked? Why is her diaper off? Whose blanket is that? Can I lay in that basket? Whose basket IS that? Why is she crying? Why does she have a paci? Who’s bow is that? Can I have that? What’s that? Can I have that?
Endless chatter which a few times had me laughing so hard I couldn’t hold my camera still!
Loved spending a few hours with this lovely family getting newborn photos…hope to see you all again soon!
