welcoming sam | massachusetts newborn photographer

Everybody knows how hard it is to become a parent for the first time, but I think it is equally difficult to transition from having just one child to having two children.  I remember how overwhelmed my husband and I felt to suddenly both have our hands full all. the. time.  And we longingly looked back at how easy we had it with just one!!

I photographed this family just ten weeks after they welcomed their second baby into their home and I was so impressed with how much they had their act together — certainly more than I ever did after having my second! Maybe two months is the magic amount of time it takes to transition (I’ve completely forgotten!) or maybe these parents are just naturals, but boy was I envious of their level of cool and calm.

Introducing sweet Sam and big brother Jake.  It’s only a matter of time before they are making mischief together…

It was late in the afternoon when I arrived at this family’s home, which created the most beautiful soft light and shadows.  And I knew when I walked up the stairs to find this, it was going to be a great session….I think this might be one of my favorite pictures I’ve ever taken.

Big brother Jake, almost three years old, was full of energy from the moment I arrived literally until the moment I left.  He managed to slow down for a couple of minutes to hold Sam, but then he was off again, showing me all the exciting details of his room, and ( my favorite part ) documenting the whole experience with his parents’ camera.  I can tell there is never a dull moment when Jake is around…

Sometimes it’s nice to have a newborn session after the baby is a couple of months old.  It’s fun to catch those adorable little baby smiles…
