a new big sister

It’s hard work to be a new big sister.

Plus, babies cry a lot.

And you have to do some waiting around while the new baby does its new baby stuff.

It can be hard to know what to think.

But I think this new big sister is catching on pretty quick.

She’s got a good mom and dad to show her the way.

And her new little sister is awfully cute, which helps quite a bit.

Yep, I think she’ll settle into this big sister business just fine.

It’s a good gig, being the new baby sister in the house.

If you follow this blog, you’ll recognize this cutie pie:

He just turned 3 and has an equally cute 4-month-old brother now…

And that seems to be working out pretty well for everyone.

These guys are honestly one of my favorite families to photograph.

Adorable kids and easy-going parents.  They’re always game for the weird spots I place them and put up with my nonstop talking and usual, slightly awkward self.

Thanks for a fun morning.

He’s ridiculously adorable.
