I've had the pleasure of knowing the Stephens family for several years now, documenting their engagement, wedding, pregnancies (with Jude & Monroe), and Jude's 1st Birthday!!! We had a ton of fun with their past sessions, so coming into this particular session where they are now a family of FOUR, I was stoked to see how Jude would interact with his little sister!
We started the session in the master bedroom where we caught some beautiful window light near their french doors. Jude is an absolute gentleman with his little sister, and I love seeing how much he adores her. Even though it was Monroe's newborn session, it was equally Jude's Big Brother session as well haha!!
His sniffs, squeals, and loves on his sister were so so sweet I think I probably said "awww", "that's so cuuutee" probably a million times during their session.
After spending some generous time in the master bedroom, along with a diaper change, feeding, and nap, we moved into the nursery where Monroe had a chance of clothes, and we documented her in her adorable crib. (I lowkey want her crib bedsheet because THAT is goals). During that time Jude hung out with dad while mom tended to baby.
By the end of our session, usually everyone's beat, and can take a good nap, but Monroe looked like she could keep going so we did a few more of her in her birthday suit and called it a day!
Thanks again Stephens family for always welcoming me into your home with open arms. The gorgeous light and atmosphere you've created in your house makes it warm, inviting, and filled with so much love! Excited to see Monroe and Jude continue to grow throughout the years!
