I think one of the best parts of my job is getting to photograph families as they grow. So when Lindsay contacted me to ask about doing Florence Montana lifestyle newborn photos of her sweet little baby girl, Piper, I was just tickled! Not only was I excited to meet Piper, but I was so looking forward to seeing Lindsay and Scott and their daughter, Madison again – whom I’d photographed two years earlier in 2015 as a newborn herself.
It is such a huge understatement to say just how much I loved their session. Piper was as sweet as can be at twelve days new, and pretty awake and alert just like her big sister had been during her session too! She dozed off a couple times after filling her belly, but for the most part she wanted to see what was going on (though I’m sure things were all pretty blurry!).
Madison was especially interested in pointing out Piper’s fingers and toes, and loved giving her little sister big “high fives!” She even showed Piper the best way to smell flowers (and then had Piper wear a few flowers too!), and she was eager to see how big her feet were compared to her baby sister’s.
It was so fun to see Lindsay, Scott and Madison as a new family of four, and to see just how much love they have for baby Piper. Piper’s grandparents, Lou and Kevin, were in town, too, and definitely enjoyed some baby snuggles as well.
Madison was also pretty excited to have her dad to herself for a few moments here and there as Piper filled her belly, so we had a great time checking out their horses, climbing fences, picking peas, tomatoes and raspberries in their garden, and getting pretty darn giddy over a wacky-looking beetle!
Lindsay, Scott, Madison, Piper, Lou and Kevin – thank you so much for inviting me to document your beautiful family again! It’s a huge understatement to say just how much I loved your session and how full my heart was after, and I’m just so happy for you all! Congratulations again on your darling Piper!
