And our family just keeps on growing! I was so excited when my cousin Sam and her husband Ryan, who’s wedding we photographed a couple of years ago, told me they were expecting their first child this summer! Their sweet baby boy arrived in July, and they couldn’t wait to bring him in for his newborn photos. They definitely wanted to get some family photos in addition to some of just Lewis by himself. Even though parents may not be feeling their best in the days after baby arrives, I always recommend you take at least a few family photos with your new arrival. They are only that little for so long, and you’ll be glad you have those precious images later on! We started with the family photos, getting Lewis with just mom and just dad as well as the whole family. Next we moved on to a few of the fun items that Sam and Ryan had brought to incorporate in Lewis’s newborn session. Sam works as a penguin keeper at the zoo, so of course she had to bring his stuffed penguin and an adorable penguin quilt! They also brought an embroidered blanket that was Ryan’s when he was little.
