You all probably remember the super fun pregnancy shoot I did just a few weeks ago for this beloved family! Well, baby Morgan just made her appearance into the world and she could not possibly have been welcomed into a more loving and happy family! They are as lucky to have her as she is to have them! Avery is being such an AMAZING oldest sister and little Quinn is adjusting to her new role as "no longer the baby" quite well! Mom and Dad, as always, are handling all the adjustments and lack of sleep with grace and humor. I just love them so much! The shoot was very "fly by the seat of your pants" because it seemed every time we were gearing up for a specific shot, something caused us to re-arrange, switch gears, change things up. We just went with the flow. As I was setting up the backdrop Quinn and Avery were playing on the cushions so I grabbed some cute shots even though I wasn't done setting things up. Cuteness waits for no one. :)
Later, as we were trying to get a very specific hands shot that we get with every new addition, Quinn was insistant on being behind rather than in front, it led to some really cute shots and I was rewarded for not hampering the unfolding of the events. I also want to remind other photographers that while you are focusing your attention on a certain shot (ie: here I was shooting dad & baby Morgan), I always keep an eye on what else is going on behind or around me, and was able to capture a great shot of Avery. Don't get locked into tunnel vision. Keep observing all around you!
Newborn shoots are notoriously challenging with siblings involved but this shoot was fun and everyone was working so well together. Carly and Kevin, after three times of doing this together, I think we are just a well oiled machine at this point!!! Love you all SO MUCH! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! *smooches*
ENJOY your sneak peek! Just a few favorites, plenty more to come... :)
