Meet Matthew. He is the newest addition to this growing family, and I was introduced to his parents by their cousins who just had me photograph their newborn baby girl several months ago. So when Matthew was about to arrive on the scene, they needed a professional newborn photographer asap.
Matthew has the cutest big brother, Christopher, who is just under two years old. Getting that sweet sibling photograph is always important to parents, but the younger the sibling is, the more challenging it can be. For this image, Mom and Dad were on both sides of the boys, supporting Matthew and making sure that Christopher didn’t bolt from the scene. With quite of bit of photoshop work, I was able to remove the parents from the photo and give them this beautiful image of their two boys together.
Dad is a huge hockey lover and still plays to this day. Matthew’s grandma crocheted these hockey skates to include in his photography session. She did the same for his cousin for her session with me, but made them a touch smaller. I guess she knows just how big Matthew is going to end up being one day.
Matthew woke up for us when it was time for his family photographs. Mom dressed him and Christopher in matching outfits and loved getting a snuggle with him before the other boys joined them.
Matthew is having a sweet dream under this special knitted blanket. His great-grandmother, whom he didn’t get to meet earthside before she passed, knitted it and the family gave it to mom at her baby shower. This woman was so special to everyone that knowing how much love she put into making the blanket brought everyone to tears. So to pay homage to her continued care of her family, we made sure to use it in Matthew’s session.
Dad is such a tall man, he almost didn’t fit on my backdrop. So seeing his tiny little boy fit snuggly in his hands is so sweet. Matthew has some big shoes to fill one day, but I have a feeling that won’t be a problem.
But no matter how big he will eventually be, Matthew started out like all babies do: tiny enough to fit comfortably in a bowl. He was born on March 21st and was 7 lbs, 6 oz and 20.5 inches.
Mom could even fit him in the palms of her hands too.
All stretched out and sleeping on his arms, Matthew was so peaceful.
Finally, all together, you can see that Mom is definitely surrounded by boys. But I have a feeling, she wouldn’t have it any other way.
