Introducing Claire Elizabeth! This sweet little girl came to me 7 days after she was born at Paoli Hospital, and I couldn’t have been more excited to meet her.
I was particularly thrilled to see this family back in the studio because I’d done the newborn photos for their first baby, a little boy named James. So getting to see how much he’s grown and also getting to watch him interact with little Claire was a treat for me.
Little brother, James always knew that he was going to have a sister, too, according to Mom:
Claire was our second baby, and we decided to keep her gender a surprise like we did for her older brother. Her older brother, James, is 23 months older than her and enjoyed watching Mommy’s belly grow. We asked him what he thought the gender was, and he always confidently replied “girl.” (We even tried mixing it up and said little sister or brother, and his answer was sister!) When she arrived and my husband told me the gender, I was overcome with so much emotion! Her big brother was right, and I couldn’t believe it! It was such a heartfelt moment. We were also unsure of how big brother James would react to meeting Claire, but he did amazing! He LOVES his little sister Claire and enjoys telling everyone about her!
Before Claire had even been in this world for a full day, she had already become a little star. She was featured on NBC News not 24 hours after her birth. They were talking about Paoli’s “Warm Feet, Warm Heart” campaign for National Heart Disease Month in February. What an introduction to the world!
Paul & Sarah, thank you for bringing your family back to my studio so I could meet your newest bundle of joy! It was so fun getting to see you and your kids as you celebrate becoming a family of four.
