You know when you meet someone and you think "I know this is going to go well."? That's how I felt the minute I meant Lauren. She and her husband, Eric, have the kind of easy demeanor that instantly made me feel welcome into their beautiful home in Wilmington, De. They smiled frequently and seemed totally relaxed welcoming a newborn into their family with big brother Andrew who was 18months old.
I'll confess, I expected may-ham. I mean, I have an 18 month old, I know the kind of tornado they are and the busyness it takes to keep them occupied. This parental duo never once seemed frazzled or even tired. I was totally amazed!
I took a little tour of their home trying to find the best light. As soon as I saw their master bedroom with stunning glass doors and a skylight, I was in photography heaven!
Baby Charlotte was out cold and a total dream:
I honestly could have spent all of my time there photographing this sweet girl just sleeping on her mom and dad's bed but I knew we needed to get the family too!
They piled onto the bed and were so fun! This little girl is going to to be surrounded by so much love & laughter.
And then it was time for just a few more shots of this beautiful girl all by herself:
And one more with big brother!
