When you book your newborn photos with Ashley Sasak Photography, the session is not just about the baby. “Wait a minute, what? Isn’t that what newborn photography is?” To me, no. My lifestyle newborn photography sessions are not only about the baby, but about the growing family they are brought in to. Whether they are the first baby or the tenth, a newborn changes the whole family dynamic. Husband and Wife become Mom and Dad, pets are no longer the center of attention, and children have to learn to love a new sibling. Baby George’s session is the perfect example of capturing the growing family.
The “V” Family is now a family of 5 with the addition of sweet baby George 🙂 A cool fact about George is that he was born on Christmas Day. And not only was he born on Christmas Day, but his big sister, Eloise (who I also photographed as a newborn), was born on Christmas Day 2 years ago!!! How crazy is that? Not only do these two siblings share the same birthday, but it also happens to land on Christmas!
As soon as I got to their house, his two older sisters showed me the way to his room. They were so excited to introduce me to him! We hung out in the nursery while George nursed and then the girls migrated out to the hallway and started playing with their Dad. While the baby finished nursing, the girls showed me their rooms and their playroom. Grace, Eloise, and I had a blast playing and jumping on the bed (Shhhh, don’t tell Mom 🙂 ) George was so alert for the whole session. He didn’t have much of an interest in sleeping for his modeling debut. But, that’s another reason I love lifestyle newborn photography, even if the baby doesn’t want to sleep, we still get awesome images!
I had such a fun morning with this family. Not only did we get some great photos of baby George, but we got some great family photos as well. Thank you V Family for allowing me to tell your story! I am honored to have been able to capture your memories.
