We don’t get much snow here in Western Washington, so when we do it seems like the whole region stops to enjoy it. The forecast a few weeks ago called for snow the Friday night and Saturday morning before this session. Instead, the snow ended up falling all through Saturday night and we woke up to several inches of snow on Sunday morning, the day of the session. I was so excited to see everything covered in white and I knew it would make the photos from this day extra special.
I arrived to find baby Georgia May sleeping and big sister, Vivienne, getting dressed. While Vivienne ate, Georgia May was changed and dozed in and out of sleep on her sheepskin. Still adjusting to life with a baby sister, Vivienne preferred to play with her dolls, changing their diapers every time Georgia May had hers changed. After reading together for a while, dad took Vivienne outside to play in the snow. Several snowballs, some snow angels and a few tears later, everyone came back inside to warm up and snuggle with the baby again.
I loved everything about this session. I loved that the random bit of snow we got decided to stick around that day. I loved how this whole family warmed up to me and my camera so quickly. I was able to document a real moment of their lives as they transition from one child to two in their beautiful home.
