The first thing I said to Jess when we chatted about setting up this session was how much I loved the names of her two sons - Luke + Leo. Paired together, these two just sound like the most adorable duo. One of my favorite things during newborn sessions is getting to watch these newly promoted older siblings interact with the new center of attention in the room. With his mop of blonde curls, Luke was curious, playful, and affectionate with Leo, curling right up next to him to tell me all about his new brother. He even showed me the differences in their feet, making for one of my favorite candid moments of the day. It's amazing how a bond can already exist and be so strong in such tiny humans!

One of my other favorite things to capture during these sessions are each parent with their baby. When Jess mentioned taking pictures on the patio off of their bedroom, it provided a beautiful backdrop for Mommy + Leo moments - I actually gasped when I saw how radiant Jess looked surrounded by such perfect summer greenery and sunshine! You could feel the sun continue to glow through the windows when it was Brian's turn to be in front of the camera with his little boy, and the looks these two shared together were nothing short of incredible. I'm just so glad to be connected to this amazing family through our own friends and know I'll be lucky enough to watch Luke + little Leo continue along as quite the duo for years to come.
