Last week, I shared this post with photos from a family session at Jane’s Carousel. A few weeks after that shoot, baby Maddie arrived! I eagerly drove out to her family’s new home in New Jersey to meet baby Maddie and take her newborn photos.
Maddie has the sweetest, proudest big sister and brother in Rachel and Andrew. Rachel was so thrilled to tell me that the white dress she and her mom had chosen for Maddie had once been hers, and Andrew at one point wondered aloud how surprised Maddie might be upon growing up and learning that these photos of all three siblings, that look like they were taken on a cozy bed, were actually taken on a blanket on the floor. So cute!
I always love when I can get totally silly moments during a shoot. Above, Andrew was making the funniest fake laugh sound; Rachel collapsed in a fit of giggles, which got Andrew laughing for real. These are the little moments behind the camera that I always rely on for such joyful shots.
Once our little model woke up, we decided to go outside for a few more shots. Rachel and Andrew loved my idea to recreate some of the mid-air family shots we took at our last shoot:
