Brand New Baby Sister | Northern VA Hospital Newborn Photographer

She's here! After making everyone wait (not-so-patiently) beautiful baby Claire made her debut. And I have to say, she was without a doubt 110% worth the wait. She is so gorgeous and adorable and downright precious. I was so thrilled to meet her in the hospital for her First 48 session when she was just hours old. I love First 48 sessions because they capture something so special about the newness of a new family member. And after having the best time at this wonderful family's maternity session, I couldn't wait to see them all (+1) again!

Big sister Nora jumped into big sister mode immediately, and she was a complete natural at big-sistering right away. She was so eager and happy to be holding baby Claire in her lap. I could tell right away that these two are going to be so close and have so much fun together as they grow up. I can just see them now, staying up way too late telling secrets and sharing jokes with each other. Their parents telling them to go to sleep already, but quietly loving how bonded their girls are.

I can't wait to share the images from her portrait newborn session that I did too, but in the meantime here are some of my favorite images from their First 48 session. Enjoy!
