{Ashburn, VA Newborn Photographer} Hello World! Love, Baby Colin

This little guy.  Meet Colin, the sweet baby boy that Lindsey, Nick & Addison welcomed into the world on June 19th.  He has the faintest hint of fuzzy blonde hair, just like his big sis, and is just as precious as could be.  

The day of his lifestyle newborn session it was practically monsooning- no joke, the rain was coming down so hard I could barely see the road in front of me.  Despite the lack of sunlight, we still found lots of nice window lighting to work with in Lindsey and Nick's home.  I love doing lifestyle newborn sessions because I get the chance to document what life is like for the whole family when a new baby comes home- the nursery, the snuggles, the sibling's curiosity.  That's what it's all about folks.  It's not just a little peanut on a beanbag...  

,,,it's the love and excitement between the members of a family that has just been redefined.

Isn't it crazy how two babies coming from the same parents can be so different from the very beginning?  I know it's like that for my little Lila and Charlotte, and Addison and Colin are the same way.  They each have their own unique personalities and it was so fun to see that unfolding in front of me during the session.  Big sister Addison is SO excited to be a big sister that mom and dad have to rein her in at times ("No, you can't pick Baby Colin up when he's crying Addie!").  If she could have it her way, she'd be running the show.  I have no doubt that she will see to it that Colin stays well fed, changed, and cuddled.  ;-)

Some of my favorite images from this session were taken in Colin's adorably decorated nursery.  The nautical theme is so cute and Lindsey did a great job picking out all the right colors and pieces.  The details are perfect- right down to the gorgeous hand-sewn nautical quilt by Colin's grandmother, Kathy.

Congratulations Estes family and thank you for letting me capture this special time in your lives!
