One thing I will never regret capturing is siblings. This can often be the hardest part of a newborn session, but is just as important as capturing mom (or dad) with their new baby. As parents we are going through a huge adjustment when we add a new baby, but we also know our first baby is also going through a huge adjustment. Sometimes it is obvious that a child was born to be a big sibling. That was definitely the case with this session. As soon as I arrived, big sister was laying on the bed holding her baby brother. She was such a little mama already and taking such good care of him. As a Colorado Springs newborn photographer I have seen a lot of big siblings, and it takes some to adjust to being a big brother or sister longer than others. And that is ok, too.
As a Colorado Springs newborn photographer I decided early on (8+ years ago) that I only wanted to shoot natural, organic in home newborn sessions. I do love seeing the cute babies posed with props and all wrapped up in a cute wrap, but there is nothing better than being able to capture a family in their natural environment. In most cases I get the most organic smiles, laughter and love captured on my camera. I know these are the memories they will want to look back on and remember.
As you look through these photos you can feel the love coming from big sister and she is beaming to have a new baby in the house.
