Introducing baby Alyssa Lucie! This cute pie came to me just 12 days after she was born at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
This was a fun session for me especially because I got to have three generations of women in my studio all at once. Mom and big sister Alina, who is a whole 3 years old, came to the session, along with Nana (Mom’s mother). I love it when I get to see the dynamics of the whole family come into play like that!
Of course, I was excited to see big sister Alina back in my studio after I got to do her newborn session. I love to see my families as they grow, and I could hardly believe how big Alina is now! It doesn’t seem like it’s been 3 years. Because I’d done Alina’s pictures before, I was also able to set up some complementary pictures so that Mom and Dad can put Alina’s and Alyssa’s pictures side by side!
And Aline was simply amazing with little Alyssa. I love doing sister shots like this, because you can just tell by looking at them that they’re going to be best friends as they get bigger.
Alyssa’s big sister has been part of the story since the beginning, too, as Mom told me:
We were very excited to find out we were expecting our second child. We immediately told our daughter, Alina, that she was going to be a big sister, to which she responded she wanted a baby sister. It was hard to explain to a 3-year-old that all we wanted was a healthy baby and we were not able to guarantee her a sister. We were even more excited to find we were having another girl and her wish had come true!
Niherie & Travis, thank you for once again trusting me with taking your newborn pictures. It was amazing to see you all again, and I’m so excited for the newest addition to your family!
