We had just a few minutes to take this shot… It was getting late and Melina had to go to bed. She had school the next day. She had been my little helper throughout the entire session, ever vigilant over her new little sister – holding her, soothing her when I needed her to. She expressed an eager interest in photography, so I handed her my backup camera and let her take a few shots of me as I continued to photograph her sister. But now it was her turn…her turn with Camila. First I got the tentative yet excited smile for my test shot, then she got a little serious when I handed her the baby, sound asleep and completely naked. And then I got this… As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words…this one clearly and emotively says just two: big sister.
I have to admit that I am very biased with these photos as they are of the newborn daughter of my close friend of many, many years. I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am for her and her beautiful family. I know how long awaited baby #2 was for them, and I know how deliriously happy they are over her arrival. But every newborn session is just as special… it may not be my close friend of many years, but I know how special each baby is to its family… yet another reason why I love newborn photography. Jimmy, Yagaira, & Melina – congratulations again on your new addition! See you soon!
