There is absolutely nothing more intimate, nothing more beautiful, nothing more fun and one hundred percent more comfortable and relaxing than having your first family photos with your new little one taken in your home surrounded by love and laughter!
This is exactly how it was when I walked over to Ashleigh’s house one Saturday morning to capture their “new” family and their new normal with little brother Alistair! There is nothing like to joy you feel when you know your family is now complete!
Everything was perfection right down to the smallest details of imperfection and that’s the way it should be! Big brother Lars met me at the front door with his back pack on practicing for the first day of school (which we have already had down here in sunny Florida) and his favorite boston terrior leggings! He introduced me to his new little brother and walked me around some of his favorite things: like his bike (which I already knew from summer days of biking with Linc!!), his train sets and of course his favorite books that he loves to read to little brother!
Lars is already the best big brother there is! He has perfected the snuggle and cuddle and loves to help take care of all baby brother’s needs!
We decided to head upstairs to my favorite place to shoot: the family bed! Lars quickly ran to grab his favorite stories and our adventure began to unfold from there! The best part about shooting in your home is that you can allow for all the play time and all the snuggles and laughter that comes with simply taking the morning off, slowing down and just enjoying your own family! Stories quickly turned into fits of giggles and wiggles, jumping on the bed and racing high fives in between snaps of pictures and kisses! Family photography doesn’t have to be stiff and uncomfortable and an hour that feels like a chore!~
It should feel like a family play date and that’s exactly how this morning felt: relaxed and comfortable!
Here are some of my favorite images from our morning together! I hope you enjoy them!
Brotherly bonding time!!! I love these!!
Ashleigh… girl you are soo gorgeous! Isn’t she just beautiful friends?!!!
Thank you so much Ashleigh and Big Lars…. (hehe) for allowing me to stop over and spend the morning with you and your incredible boys! I feel so thankful and so blessed to have you all in our lives! You all mean so much to us Tucker’s!!!
We love you all!!!
