Just looking at this photo, you might not see anything special or even out of the ordinary. But those of you who have or have had lots of little kids swarming around your knees like bees on a rose bush know that this photo is an absolute miracle. These parents of brand new baby girl Aubrey, now have 4 kids age 4 and under. Yup, a 4-year-old son, twin 2-year-old boys, and now newborn baby girl Aubrey. Mom and Dad really wanted to get newborn photos with their big family but knew that it was going to be a bit chaotic. Being a mom of 4 kiddos myself, I was excited to work with them. (Oh, and in case you were wondering, this photo is actually 5 separate images blended together so that everyone looked their absolute best.)
Being the 4th little one, Aubrey was completely relaxed and happy to go with the flow.
We were able to get big brother to have a cuddle and kiss with his new sister. But the twins weren’t having it at all. So we’ll get them the next go round.
All curled up in the womb pose, Aubrey was loving this soft blanket and the nice warm air that I had blowing around her.
Mom and Dad are really enjoying Miss Aubrey as she is going to be their last baby. There is a sense of completion once your last baby joins your family, and they are making sure to enjoy every moment of her right now.
This beautiful plum color was a last minute change on Mom and Dad’s part, and they are so thrilled that they decided to go with a deep color. The rich tones are really gorgeous and just make Aubrey’s warm skin glow.
So content in Momma’s arms, Aubrey was having her awake time. Momma couldn’t be more beautiful and happy with her long awaited baby girl.
Absolutely perfect with her rosy lips, pink toes, and swirl of hair on her head.
After all that awake time, Aubrey had a little fuss before she finally started to settle back off to sleep. Poor Dad was a complete trooper while she cried, and was happy to be the one holding her when she was ready to settle down and rest.
If you have a full house but would really like to get newborn photos with a big family, contact me today. Having lived inside my own bee hive, I know what it’s like to have constant chaos be the norm. It’s all manageable I promise you. And in the end, you will be so thankful that you captured this moment in your growing family’s life.
