I remember when I had my second daughter, one of my biggest concerns was how my oldest, Naomi, would handle the change.
Will she be jealous?
Will she feel ignored?
Will they adjust?
I think all mommies ask themselves these questions at one point.
So when Jenny asked me to shoot the second day of Joy's life, the day when her big brother Evan was coming to the hospital, I totally understood why she'd want to capture that moment. It's a big deal!
Here's how the day unfolded.
Evan arriving with his grandma and grandpa, presents in hand....
His grandma went to the nursery and rolled her slowly in...
Brother meets sister...
First thing he did was quickly grab the pink polka dot bunny and lay it beside her...so sweet. And soon she had many more gifts from big brother...
Jenny had also printed out pictures of their family and lined Joy's bed with it. I thought this was such a loving detail and one only a mommy would think of!
I love this next photo because it shows Andy's father looking on so happily at his son and grandson .... three generations together ... precious.
Jenny and Andy, you are blessed with two amazing gifts from God...thank you for letting me capture these once-in-a-lifetime moments for you...I hope Evan and Joy can look back at these images years later and laugh at how little they were~ love you guys!
