This newborn session complete with sock monkeys and a big brother full of smiles is so cuuuuute! Devin was born at the end of October at a healthy 9lbs 4oz! Mom and Dad were amazed at their chunky little newborn the moment they laid eyes on him.
He wasn’t quite ready to do any sleeping when I arrived so I started with getting a few photos of his nursery and all his sock money room decor. When Devin was a bit more ready we moved on to getting a few photos of him swaddled up. Then we added big brother Callen in for some photos and they turned out so cute! I just love the huge smiles that Callen gave us! He wasn’t quite sure what do do with his new little brother laying on his arm but we managed to convince him that it was a great idea. We sang songs, clapped, bribed with fruit snacks and did all sorts of goofy faces to get his mind off of getting too worried about Devin being a little too close for comfort. We even managed to talk him into giving Devin a kiss. Adorable!
After photographing the boys together we got the whole family on the bed to get pictures of the four of them. What a beautiful new family of four! Towards the end of their family photos I brought in some books from Callen’s room and let him pick out what he wanted to read. He sat on daddy’s lap while momma held little brother and they read a little bit of Callen’s book.
Once were were done with family photos baby Devin was a bit more tired and ready to conk out in a good milk coma so I could get some good sleepy photos of him. He was quite the little wiggle worm so it took some very slow moments and waiting but we got some super cute sleepy photos and even a smile or two.
Congrats Elissa & Charles! Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph such a precious time in your lives! – Megan
