Cozy Lifestyle Newborn Session | Norfolk Family Photographer

Have you ever been through a season of life full of total and complete change? Maybe it was a wedding, a cross country move, having twins or starting a job in a new town. Well, have you ever had two (or three!) major life changes happening simultaneously?

This sweet (and oh so brave family) just welcomed their second son AND they are preparing for a move in just a few short weeks. Can we just take a moment to applaud their total amazing-ness? In my opinion, that takes a lot of guts, grit and complete faith. 

When I arrived Saturday morning for their lifestyle newborn session, we'd had crazy thunderstorms the night before. When a loud clap of thunder woke me at 4am, I immediately thought of this family and their small kiddos. And even though I know not much sleep was had (because babies, toddlers and craaaazy storms) they all greeted me with a smile. And a dino roar or two - which you know I LOVED. :)

I was pretty obsessed with their cozy Norfolk condo. Since this was their first home together, it was bittersweet to capture them in the space. Nothing is quite like the home you bring your babies home to! I loved the window light, the fun details, and can we talk about the teal lampshades? You guys - TEAL is my love language. 

I can't. handle. the. cuteness.

 I literally wanted to squish his cheeks. Such a sweet big bro!

Giving older siblings special jobs during a session always works like gold. Just asking them to find a book or a special toy makes them feel apart of the process! This is an important time in their lives too - sharing the limelight ain't easy. ;) 

Making the decision to have a child - it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

His expression of pride here gives me ALL the Momma feels. So precious.

Because it's not a party without dinosaur puppets. Duh. 

These two boys are going to be besties, I can tell. Such a blessing! Loved my time with these four. Safe travels Springs family!
