Fresh 48 – Baby Ivy
My first ‘Fresh 48′ session was simply amazing and beautiful! I had been wanting to try this kind of session for a while and I had a few lined up. But just 1 week before the first one was scheduled for, my good friend and photographer, Lia, asked me if I would like to photograph this family since the baby arrived late and she had a trip planned and couldn’t make it. And I am so happy she gave me this opportunity!
I was a bit nervous at the beginning, as we all are when something is new, but I felt comfortable and at ease right away. I arrived when Mom and Baby Ivy were alone in the room so I got some shots of them alone. The love Mom had for her 1 day old was simply overwhelming. Being pregnant myself, I got quite emotional! Dad arrived shortly after with big sister, Ellie, who was there to see her sibling for the first time.
I have to say that Ellie’s reaction when meeting her baby sister was one of the sweetest and most adorable moments I’ve witnessed. She had a huge smile on her face and kept staring at her as if she couldn’t believe her eyes. She wanted to hold her, carry her, hug and kiss her, and she didn’t want to let her go. That’s what I call a natural big-sister instinct. I’m sure these girls will be best friends, lucky them!
Congratulations to this family for their new addition!
