I have baby fever but since we found out we’re going to Minot ND in October, we’re holding off just a touch so we don’t have a blizzard baby. Until then, I hope I get to do a lot more of these Fresh 48 Sessions because they are too fun!
I love that every time I open up my images I’m falling in love over and over again with them. This little man was so calm and didn’t get phased by a single click of the shutter. Mama and Papa were so in love with each other and baby. The session was just amazing.
The last time we visited Villers Abbey, I worked with the family that didn’t stop! I have to tell you, not many kids do stop… which makes my job fun!
This time we had a family of six (1 more than our last visit to the Abbey) full of littles who were 4, 3, 2, and 0 years of age! This mom and dad team were fantastic and the littles were so sweet. Big sister A knew everything (even things about me!) while the littler sister (keep up!) was very picky about getting her picture taken (though rest assured she did end up sitting pretty and posing for me at the very end). The brothers, N and R were very stoic though I got a few smirks from big brother N and laughs from baby brother R. Okay, now that I’ve confused you all, here are their portraits!
In Belgium, most families spend 4 nights in the hospital as standard procedure and a cot is provided for daddies to stay in the room every night too. It’s a different experience having a baby in Belgium and it wraps you up in a world of newness and gives you time to breathe before you walk into what is, essentially, a new world. And, for most mommies and daddies, it feels like you’re breaking out of prison by the time you FINALLY get discharged.
I got to go back to the hospital that brought Mess Maker J into the new world of family that, from the moment I walked in, exuded happiness. Mom and Dad couldn’t stop smiling and loving on this little baby. They were so natural with their little man and each other, that the session flew by. I can’t wait to work with this little family again. They’ll be coming by the studio with big brother for an Easter session in a few days so stay tuned for more squishy, wrinkly baby!
So, without further ado, enjoy the newness of this Belgian made mama, daddy, and baby!
Thank you to the little family that welcomed me into their brand new world, it was a beautiful visit!
