Gang’s all here
At home newborn lifestyle sessions are my favorite way to photograph a new family! I love to capture special moments of this new little life, comfortable in their surroundings, un-posed and natural. Watching the interaction of a new family enjoying their time together is just magical.
I’ve photographed the Mendese Family a few times now and it’s such an incredible honor every time! When Alyson reached out to schedule a lifestyle newborn session for their newest little one, I was over the moon excited. This easy going family is not only a joy to photograph, but even better to hang around with. Having five children, you’d think there would be more chaos, but guess again with these rockstars! I’m amazed at the cool and calm demeanor the parents have, which has totally passed down to their little ones. Even their newborn seems to be at ease in his new role as youngest brother.
The older children take turns holding baby Finn, patiently wait for their moment to cuddle, looking on with love. Even the family pup is happy to act as a boppy when needed!
My dream has always been to have a big family, I really wanted four kids. All the reactions I ever got were “NO WAY! Two is enough! Yeah, wait until you have one” Apparently, they haven’t met the Mendese family, because they’ve figured it out, the more the merrier is their motto.
Welcome little Finn, you’ve got yourself one heck of a family to grow into.
