Bennett Lee-Brian | 8 Days New

One of my favorite type of sessions are newborn sessions. I love meeting these little ones at just a few days old, and snuggling them close, especially if I did their maternity session. There's just an anticipation to meeting the one you photographed in the bump. I love watching the parents interact with their brand new little ones, and when there are older siblings involved, well, it just makes it THAT much better!

Bennett was such a snuggle bug. All he wanted to do was snuggle with his mommy. And eat :) He just wouldn't fall asleep for his session, but nevertheless we got the cutest pictures of this sweet little one. I loved capturing the light peach-fuzz hair on his head, his perfect little ears, his adorable profile with his perfect nose, his rich kissable lips, his sweet little hands and those newborn feet. And rolls! I love it when newborns have rolls! They grow up SO fast, so capturing all these details is so important.

Big brother Declan was an absolute joy throughout the session. He is such an awesome and fun little boy. My favorite part? When he said "Bwenda" :) Declan is so in love with Bennett, it was so cute to watch him interact with his baby brother. And Andrea and Derek? Over-the-moon in love with Bennett! But who wouldn't be, he's the cutest! Such a perfect addition to this already-beautiful family.

And don't get me started on the boys' Peter Pan themed-bedroom.... adorable! The alligator outfit that Bennett wore was so perfect. Not only because of the alligator in Peter Pan (that ate Captain Cook's hand), but it's also the same outfit that Declan wore 2 years ago for his newborn session. But anyway, they have such an amazing bedroom, and the coolest part is that a lot of the items in the room were handmade by Andrea and Derek. Andrea made that beautiful dream catcher that hangs over where Bennett's crib will be. Derek made that AWESOME tipi/tent, and he also made Declan the coolest loft bed from scratch! And, if I'm not mistaken, the furniture in the boys' room is "refurbished." It's such a creative and personal room for the most precious little boys. "Never Grow Up." Well done guys :)

Andrea, Derek and Declan - congratulations on Bennett! He is the perfect addition to your beautiful family, and I'm so happy for you and so excited to watch this little one grow up (and see if he will still look like Declan in a few months!) Thank you for trusting me to capturing such an important and delicate task.It truly means so much, and it was wonderful to meet Bennett.


PS - I HAD to include a picture of Tucker, their dog, at the end here! Tucker kept coming to their master bedroom where we shot for a bit, and he kept knocking on the door and crying, wanting to get in. When he looked at me and I got this shot I was pretty excited :) But see what I mean - not only is this family stunning, but their dogs are too! So blessed :)
