Lifestyle Newborn: Saige
Can you believe that this session almost didn’t happen? When I woke up, I was met with a text from my Mom alerting me to the icy roads for my impending drive. Thankfully, the Price family was gracious enough to bump back our session time an hour to give the roads a chance to clear. I so wanted to make this session a reality for them. After their firstborn arrived, I ended up with the flu and wasn’t able to photograph their newborn session! I was heartbroken. When Kourtney contacted me about booking a session for Saige, I leapt at the change. Not only are they a beautiful family, but their house is a photographers dream. It made my heart go pitter pat more than once.
I arrived at their house and was met by their sweet toddler daughter (whom I also photographed when she was brand new) who lead me by the hand to meet her new baby sister. As always, we started with snuggles on the couch (apparently, comparing feet sizes with your newborn sibling is really funny when you are two). We used up every beautiful square inch of their home to take some really precious portraits. Don’t they make a lovely family of four?
I love when parents have a sweet little room set up for baby. I always grab some shots of the details that you worked so hard to put together for your children. Plus, it’s so sweet to see those tiny little babes in their big cribs (even if they aren’t using them quite yet). Also, there may have been snow and ice outside, but we partly melted in the balmy 75 degree nursery! I always ask my parents to bump up the heat for their in-home sessions. My rule of thumb: If you’re sweaty, baby will be happy. Truer words were never spoken! We may have been a little warm, but baby Saige was a dream. Look at that sweet expression on her face!
Big sister was a little hesitant at first to hold her baby. But once she was shown how to hold her close, she wouldn’t let her go. So much joy! I wish I could bottle up that sunshine from that smile.
Congratulations, Price family! You are amazing and grace-filled people. I love watching you grow as parents and as a family. I know that Saige (and Verity!) will be loved and well guided in life.
