The last time I saw this family, they had just welcomed their first baby boy into the family. I loved Mom & Dad immediately because they told me they met through their mutual love of singing. I have a soft spot for singers, since I used to do a fair amount of singing in college ( now I’m restricted to the kitchen, my car and the shower… someday maybe I’ll hit the stage again..#bucketlist)
Anyway, I was thrilled when I got an email from Ali telling me she was
pregnant again and wanted to have me document her second baby boy! Although this family had moved to a new home in a new town, they were still the same wonderful warm people I had met earlier, the only difference being they had two years of parenting experience under their belt. AND their first baby boy was no longer a baby — rather full grown toddler! Little Henry was running around, talking, singing his favorite songs, playing his ukelele and generally being all sorts of cute. He seemed to be adjusting to his new role as a big brother with no problem at all.
The first weeks at home, introducing your first born to your second are simply the best thing in the world. Moments like these are the ones we will cherish forever.
Father/son time involved singing, playing the ukulele, trains and a little Rubics cube 😉
I think this is one of my favorite images from the morning. How amazing to just sit and stare into your new little one’s face? So simple and beautiful.
This is probably my other favorite image from the session. Sweet Sam was so alert and content and daddy’s arms… Just hanging out, enjoying life as a family of four. Thank you so very much for inviting me back to document this very special time in your life!!
