Thomas' Newborn Session

A few days after we came home from the hospital our friend Allison came over to take pictures of our sweet little squishy peanut and family.
 
A few..okay, a LOT of my very favorites...
In my opinion, you can't have a newborn session without a few nakey photos. I want to remember every little roll and dimple in this little man.
I love these candid shots Allison took of Matt swaddling Thomas. I didn't even know she captured these moments when they were happening but I am so obsessed. Matt is the swaddling king. With Caroline he would watch countless YouTube videos at night learning different swaddling wraps and techniques. It became his mission to create the ultimate unbreakable swaddle...and he accomplished that mission with the double swaddle burrito supreme technique!
Mommy's turn!
And then we attempted to include our crabby toddler into our photo session but she was not having it. Caroline didn't want to smile, didn't want to sit with us, and definitely wasn't interested in her baby brother that morning. But Allison worked her magic and was able to still get a few pictures of all of us despite Caroline being incredibly uncooperative. 
 Aaaaaand we're done...
A huge thank you to Allison for taking these photos of my family that we will cherish forever. Other family sessions with Allison include our 2013 Christmas shoot, maternity shoot and 2014 Christmas shoot.
