My weekend is always complete when I get to spend it with a fresh new baby and family! Oscar and I had a lovely time hanging out together… and this time I even managed to get a few images of big brother Henry as well 🙂
I will call this next collection “Anatomy of a newborn plus sibling session”. The first time I met Henry was during his mama’s maternity photo session. Henry wanted nothing to do with me. No amount of bribery would get him to befriend my lens. So when I showed up for baby brother Oscar’s newborn session I wasn’t expecting to get much out of Henry. Amazingly enough, with the help of the infamous “Green Monkey” 😉 , we managed a few shots…. First we had to photograph a wrapped “Green Monkey” plus Henry. Once Green Monkey was removed (as you can see below) Henry wasn’t so sure about adding Oscar to the picture. I think the last image is my favorite. It isn’t necessarily always about capturing what we may envision the perfect portrait to be … it is about capturing a moment in time. And sometimes those moments aren’t quite as we imagine them to be … nevertheless, they are still absolutely perfect in their own right.

Peace, love, and green monkey cuddles, anya
