Last fall I spent a sunny afternoon with the sweet Giannese family. Brayden was just about to turn two, full of energy and adorableness.
It turned out that Amy was actually pregnant during this session (she didn't realize until later!) I was so happy to hear their exciting news, and couldn't wait to photograph their new arrival early in June. Well, baby Nicholas couldn't wait either, he decided to come a few weeks early (after a day spent painting and preparing the new nursery!) But he was healthy and happy as could be, and warmly welcomed home by his big brother Brayden. I spent the morning photographing the growing family at their gorgeous home when Nicholas was just six days old.
We started with some pictures of Brayden while Nicholas nursed, Brayden was SO proud showing off his big-boy bed!
Once sweet Nicholas was off in dreamland we put him into the adorable celestial outfit his mom had found for him. Love that he looked like he was sleeping soundly on a cloud...
Some quiet moments just with mom and dad...
It happened to be Amy's birthday, and she was completely glowing.
When we got the whole family together on the bed, there was so much sweetness...
We did a few more family shots outside, it was a perfect day, finally felt like summer with the sunshine and a gentle breeze.
Nicholas was being SO good, we squeezed in a few more sleepy baby poses. Such a perfect little nugget!
Welcome to the world, baby Nicholas! <3
