I was so happy to receive a phone call and email from the Parsons who had had a third baby in the time since I photographed their 2nd newborn–Claire. This time it was a little boy, Benjamin!
We wanted to recreated a few classic shots and then the rest of the time we focused on candid shots in and out of the house.
The eldest, Noah, had turned into quite the little scholar since I’d seen him last, asking lots of smart questions and using really big words–big words for a big brother twice over, I suppose.
With the help of Christine and dear Monkey we got the kids smiling pretty quickly–good ol’ Monkey. Oh, and Christina too… :)
Just the boys together…
Noah is such a tender, protective big brother! By the way, none of these photos were specifically ‘posed’. Noah’s just like that…cutie.
And of course, with my luck, the little baby who apparently can sleep through anything wouldn’t really sleep much for me. Classic. Oh well, I can work with anything–and we got some really lovely waking close-ups and some sleeping smiles shots! Ben’s a smiley little man.
Just the girls…who are outnumbered now! Uh oh! Although with smiles like that I can’t see them ever being overlooked.
While we were shooting in the bedroom Christina was with the kiddies in the backyard. After an unfortunate tumbling accident–some clothes had to be changed and a little boo cleaned up, but everyone was all smiles once again as we shot some more family shots on the back deck.
While we finished up with Ben, the kids happily played in the backyard–and with the sun at just the right angle, I couldn’t resist a few backlit shots around the yard.
Congratulations on the safe arrival of Benjamin, you guys! Hopefully see you for #4? No pressure….but you make cute kids.
