A week after Ava’s amazing birth, I got to come back to her home and hang out with her family.
Big Brother showed me all his favorite toys and he was such a good sport! Family photos can be super tough for a two-year-old, right? 😉
I especially loved some of the photos we took in the bedroom where Ava was born.
When I do photos at home, I always love the flexibility we have to just sit and chat while the baby eats, or has a diaper change, or whatever the family needs. Kids can have snacks and adults can have coffee-breaks.
I think it makes a big difference in the photos.
But more importantly than all that, I just think it’s really important that Mom and Dad and siblings don’t walk away feeling like it was a huge stressful ordeal. We want the photos but we don’t want the stress, thanks!
It was a lovely morning spent enjoying Ava’s tiny fingers and toes and squishy lips. She was a gem for the whole thing!
Sweet dreams, little one!
Which photo is your favorite? I’m a sucker for the ruffle-butt and tiny toes! I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
