I recently had the honor of capturing the Bertram/Lazebnik as they begun living as a family of four. One of my favorite parts about photographing second babies is recording older siblings as they learn to navigate their relationship with their newest brother or sister. David is such a good older brother. During this session, David taught me all about his favorite animals, he is really into sea creatures. At one point I asked him if he had taught his new baby brother, Theo, all about his favorite animals and his reaction was priceless. David realized that he was going to get to teach Theo all about the best tings in life, like sea creatures! It was so sweet capturing them laying on the floor staring at plastic toys as David explained all the differences between each water animal. This is the beginning of brotherhood- a bond that cannot be matched or broken. Thank you Bertram/Lazebnik family for inviting me in to capture the great love you have in your home, it was an honor!
I am so excited to share this newborn session with you today! This family loves one another so well. As I reflect on this shoot and on this family the word "genuine" keeps coming to mind. From the moment I walked in their home there was a peaceful and welcoming spirit filling the room. The way they interact with one another is real and filled with a ton of love and genuine excitement to do life with one another. Harvey has come into this love fest and been fully engulfed by it - so much beauty here. It was truly an honor to capture this moment in time for this sweet family. Cheers to being a family of four! My prayer for you is that this genuine love you have for one another only grows and is infectious to those you encounter.
This post is the last of my series of Mallory and Scott becoming parents to Anneliese. It has been so special to capture the journey and joy of pregnancy, birth, and the first days home with this sweet baby. Anneliese fits into the family perfectly. Scott's sons love her so much and are so sweet with her. They love to hold her and they come up to her and gently stroke and kiss her head. She so clearly loves them too and smiles when they are close. Scott and Mallory are smitten. The whole home is filled with even more joy and love than it was before. Blessings to you all as you continue on this journey of life together as a family; may your love grow deeper each day!
