I’m so excited to share these portraits of beautiful newborn baby Ada! Her mom and dad are in our small group and they decided to wait until the birth to find out if the latest addition to their family is a boy or girl. Major kudos to them for having that kind of patience to be surprised! Her brother has gradually gone from confusion and being slightly envious of new baby sister to adoring big brother, ready to hold her and shower her with kisses anytime. Mom, brother, Ada, and grandma came by a few weeks ago for a quick portrait session….
We started with a few portraits out back on one of their heirloom blankets, in a beautiful dainty dress also passed down through the family…
Ava getting some attention and kisses from big brother…
Can’t forget a classic B&W of big brother looking on…
And one of baby brother with grandma, showing off his first leather wallet that Mike made for him…
And we also had to capture a quick portrait of three generations of beautiful women in this family!
We went outside again for a few less-candid baby portraits. The weather was perfect for a newborn baby photoshoot – like a thick blanket of heat, but not too scorching. Ada slept right through this part, like the perfect newborn baby model should!
Then we headed inside for a few more portraits.
I think Ada has the princess-wave-to-photographers thing down already!
Love this one!
It’s rare you can get a newborn to open their eyes and a toddler to cooperate and look at the camera for a family portrait, so this set of portraits is a special one indeed!
Next, big brother asked mom if he could hold baby sister… how precious is this!?
Love these two candid ones of them too…
And finally, probably my favorite portrait from the entire photoshoot… one that I think every mom should have with their newborn!
Congratulations on your beautiful baby Ada! Love you guys!!
