This fresh baby was so sweet to spend the afternoon photographing. It was one of the first warm days of spring, or should I say summer, as it was nearly 80 degrees outside. It’s a photographer’s dream to be able to take newborn babies outside for that gorgeous light and fresh air. I love that the feeling of the day seems to be infused into the photographs. So breathtakingly beautiful is this baby boy. Momma did an incredible job keeping things simple with a white onesie and charming little blankets as backdrops. It definitely makes baby j the star of the show. And speaking of blankets, check out the hand knit yellow one made by grandma. (If you click the link below, you can see the ABC blanket this same grandma quilted for the big sister when she was a baby). I love that we got the big sister to jump in on the fun with some photos too. Her smile is contagious and her spirit is so bright and cheery. She’s already an amazing big sister and it was so wonderful to have her and the whole family in portraits together.

In fact, I photographed the big sister when she was just 8 days old. If you’d like to see how she’s grown in just a few short years, check it out here: big sister m’s baby photos. It’s an honor to have been the one to document these first few days in both babies’ lives for this special family.
