    Another Brother | Pittsburgh Newborn Photography at Home

    Gracious, my blogging laziness seems to have reached record levels. But I have sweet sessions from my friends to share, so I’m going to knock some out. Get ready!

    This one takes us back to April and the arrival of baby P to my longtime boo Laura’s family. It’s hard for me to remember a time now when Mr. O, her first little boy, wasn’t around to crack us up with his wit and wisdom.  And I’m sure before long we’ll feel the same way about his little brother. P is like the zen-master–he pretty much spends his life giggling and snoozing, so he is a little dream.

    See if you can tell at what point in this photo shoot we start slinging a stuffed monkey into the ceiling fan and watching it spin.

    Welcome, Ethan | Lakeland Newborn Session at Home

    ‘Tis the season for second babies, and so far I am having such a blast watching all my favorite families grow.  Right on the heels of Eli’s first birthday, he welcomed his little brother Ethan with open arms (and many, many affectionate pats on the head).  Fred and Caroline and I could not stop laughing for the bulk of this session, because Eli was showboating and giggling like crazy.  Ethan, meanwhile, couldn’t have been more zen about the whole thing.

    I was so happy to see that stork out in their yard a second time in almost a single year, and so thrilled to be a part of capturing a homecoming for them once again.

    Sweet Baby Luke | Germantown Newborn Photography at Home

    My very favorite thing about photography is getting to be present for the most special moments of my friends’ lives.  In January, that meant the addition of little Luke Henry into the family of my dear friends Carissa and Roy and their son Cliff.  Baby Luke was born on the same Thursday that I had to take my mom to the hospital for a mean attack of pancreatitis; Carissa had Luke at the same hospital about 10 minutes after my mom and I had gotten settled in.  It was a beautiful, heartwarming ending to a very difficult day, as I got to be one of the very first people to snuggle this adorable little addition, and got to be present when Cliff met his little brother for the first time.  (Baby Luke, ever thoughtful, had gotten Cliff a present that included chocolate.  No wonder these two already get along brilliantly.)

    A few days later, we did Luke’s newborn photos at home, and Cliff could not have been more interested in participating.  That head-in-the-chin photo from below?  100% unposed.  He was INTO it, and so great with his baby brother.  Near the end we did some photos of the whole family, and I attempted to amuse Cliff by tossing his stuffed raccoon pillow in the air and bopping myself on the head with it.  Mission accomplished: whenever I come over now, he greets me with “Raccoon hit head!” and runs to Baby Luke’s room to get it.  He is such a sweetheart, and I have no doubt that Luke will follow right in his footsteps.

    Kaylea | Arlington Newborn Photography

    Sweet Kaylea is the newest addition to my extended family, and I couldn’t be prouder of her and her mama, my cousin Jessica.  They had a rough few days after Kaylea was born early, but both of them rallied and are doing wonderfully.  Jessica and her husband Mike are so smitten with this little girl–even if they don’t quite see eye-to-eye on whether she should rock a pink hair bow!  (Not to worry: when a little one is in as happy and cooperative a mood as Kaylea was during her session, everybody can get photos just the way they like them!)

    I think Kaylea was excited to show me her room.

    Cannon the Sailor Man | Memphis Newborn Photos

    Lauren and Matt welcomed their first little one, Cannon, earlier in June.  It was such a treat to meet them 8 days later and see how crazy they are about their newest addition.  His nursery has a nautical theme, and I love how his outfit picks up those colors.  He was hungry for the start of our time together, but quickly settled into snuggly mode.  You can tell his favorite moments are spent holding his mom and dad’s hands.

    Eventually he drifted off to sleep, so we decided to see whether he would curl up in Matt’s guitar case.  The verdict: no problem!  He also allowed us to change him into his adorable Einstein cloth diaper without making a peep.Cannon - Memphis newborn photos at homeCannon - Memphis newborn photos at homeCannon - Memphis newborn photos at homeCannon - Memphis newborn photos at home

    The whole family.  May I say, those little Yorkies were HILARIOUS and so cuddly.  I totally wanted to smuggle them away with me…but they looked so happy where they were. :)Cannon - Memphis newborn photos at home

    Congratulations Matt and Lauren on your gorgeous family!
