When you have two boys, there’s always going to be a lot of energy and noise in your home, and during this session it was obvious that baby Zac is loved on with quite enthusiastic force by his big brother Lachie! Newborn lifestyle sessions are very relaxed, go-with-the-flow type sessions. When you have one baby, they revolve solely around the needs of your newborn. When you have other children, they usually revolve a little more around the toddler. When your older child wants to sit and cuddle their baby, let them. When they need a cuddle from mum or dad, give it to them. When they need to jump on the bed, or play flying games with Dad, let them do that too. No two sessions follow exactly the same routine, because each family is unique and different. The one thing that does stay the same is that there is no pressure and no expectations…it’s all about capturing your life as a family as it is today, in this very moment. Some days might seem never ending, but I promise…they end all too quickly and before you know it, they’re just memories of a time that once was.
During our session, Lachie had leg rides from dad, played with his trucks, snacked on some food, jumped on the bed, flew on the couch, did stamping with Mum, read stories with Dad, and cuddled his new baby brother. All in the day of the life of a little boy who has just become a big brother! Meanwhile, Zac remained calm and chilled throughout it all. Eating when he needed to eat, and sleeping when he needed to sleep. And this session is now just a little snapshot into their life as it was during that very time in their lives.
