I love it when I get to see a baby I've photographed many times, become a sibling. To watch their little world open up with someone else to love, share and (let's face it) argue with is just magical. Watching my own son welcome his brother and all that he brought was one of the coolest things I've ever experienced. To photograph that journey is even better! Miss Sienna has always been a complete ham for the camera. Her newborn photos blew me away because she (no kidding) actually posed. I've never seen a three week old engage with the camera like Sienna did, so I shouldn't have been surprised that she'd steal the show at this pregnancy sitting! I love that we get to see her perspective on the new baby though. All too soon life will change so dramatically and she'll have to share the stage :) She tells me that a baby sister is coming, so it will be interesting to see if she's right! So often the older sibling just 'knows'.
For those thinking about the winter style of shoot...this is such a gorgeous example. The trees are insanely beautiful right now, and the soft winter light is incredible. We bundled up, romped around, I rolled around in duck poo as usual, and enjoyed the whole thing immensely. Well, the duck poo I could have done without, but it's not all glamourous!
