I was secretly hoping it would be a boy. With two adorable older brothers who just love each other (see “Worth the Wait”, a Blog posting from March of this year), I knew he’d fold right in. They didn’t want to know. I never did either, and although originally I dreamed of dress ups, ballet recitals and that special mother-daughter bond, my heart can’t even imagine loving anything more than my three boys. We have a tight bond all our own, and they share a connection that I couldn’t even begin to put into words.

I love incorporating sentimental pieces into a Session, particularly a Newborn Session. It shows that even with the newness of life, there’s an underlying sense of history and tradition that makes their family unique. Sean’s Great Grandfather owned a milk company, and they had preserved one of their old milk bottles. Along with this antique scale I recently found, it was simply perfect.
