This session was mostly about baby brother — you know, the new guy. Big brother was there, of course, ready with a smile that could knock your socks right off. I mean, have you ever seen such a smile? (Imagine baby brother’s smile with teeth and you can imagine a similar level of enthusiasm, right?)
Big brother is crazy about his baby brother. Loves to cuddle with him in the crib, tell secrets and flash that contagious smile at him.
The thing about being two, though, is that things can — and do — change on a dime. All of a sudden, big brother was NOT happy. That should be something I’m sorry about, right? I mean, when you browse through my site, I’d say happiness is more of a theme than, say, catastrophic despair. BUT. Somehow, the post- toddler crash photos of this family are my faves from this session. The open mouthed howl of this next one (can’t you just HEAR it?) and …
… this moment. We had decided that dad should take big brother outside for a little “reset” and mom and I would spend some time inside with baby brother. I glanced out the window at one point and saw dad leading big brother in this adorable dance that turned his mood right around. Favorite, favorite, favorite!
Meanwhile, mom had some special time with baby inside.
Of course, these mood swings are highly exhausting, which was also convenient — I loved seeing the “low energy” side of both brothers as well.
It’s the story of their life right now as the parents of two little boys — both babies, really. It’s certainly not boring, and definitely not easy. But there it is.
Loved being their Westchester Family Photographer!
Thanks for looking…
