I was so ecstatic when I heard from the Schipper family that they were expecting baby #2. I was blessed enough to be able to see Cora’s first year of life and now she was going to be a big sister!
Earlier this month, sweet Lucy made her grand appearance and she is the perfect addition to the Schipper family.
Even though Lucy’s arrival was the original reason for me reuniting with the Schippers, that’s not to say the whole session was dedicated to Lucy’s newborn portraits. During Lucy’s feedings, Cora got to have a photoshoot of her own.
Let me tell you, this girl is after my own heart. She resisted photos almost the entire time we were together. She wanted NOTHING to do with me! It was only when I brought some flowers out into the studio did she show the least bit of interest in being in front of the camera. It soon became very clear, she wanted control of the camera - Cora is a natural photographer!
She tried her very best to avoid the camera and even went as far to take a couple pictures of her dad all by herself!
By the time we finished up our session though, Cora decided I was cool enough to hang and asked for a hug goodbye. >Swoon!<
I feel incredibly fortunate to have spent this time with the Schipper clan so soon after Lucy arrived. Having two littles under 2 years old is no small feat, but Tasha and Zach - you’re killin it!
I can’t wait to show you all more of this sweet family as the year passes and I get to capture Lucy growing. Stay tuned for her three month session this summer!
