This is probably one of my most favorite shoots and here is why... it's so real. Everything about it, we didn't fluff and we didn't get fancy... why? Because there was a 2 year old involved, that means, we had quite the job on our hands to get him to want to be photographed! If you know anything about me and my kids (who never want to be photographed) then you'll know that Melissa and Jay were in good company. Mom and Dad handled the situation beautifully by just remaining calm and trying to make fun of the situation. We put on some Thomas the Tank Engine tunes and had a little dance party to break the ice. Eventually big brother relaxed and started to have fun... I mention this, not to take away from the sweetness and newness of the new baby arriving home, but because I feel like so many parents would start feeling flustered and overwhelmed. If this ever happens to you, remain calm and just go with the flow... it will all be ok.
It was a wonderful time welcoming Fletcher home, he is so calm, cool and collected. I'm so excited for this new family of 4 to start on their journey with Fletcher by their side.
