It was a joy and pleasure to get to welcome the newest member of the Hamsley Family, Sweet Little Malia!!
She is loved and adored by 5 older sisters who are excellent helpers to their mama and daddy. :) This session was a dream!! As I entered the house, I see 5 little ladies lined up on the couch watching Mickey Mouse, and then I see they are all wearing matching white gown/dresses with white ribbons in their hair. My heart did a little jig! The whole time I was there, they were all perfect little angels and lent a helping whenever I or their parents asked. They were smitten with baby sister and what I had planned for her portraits. Typically, siblings can't wait to be done with their portion of the session, so I quickly get them done and send them on their way to more fun things. However, these sisters were different. They hung around and followed us wherever we went during the session. It was so precious. As far as baby girl newborn sessions go, this might very well be my most favorite. The challenge of having 8 humans (5 under the age of 12 and 1 newborn) was welcomed, and, honestly, they all did such a fabulous job it wasn't much of a challenge at all.
I so love cuddling these sweet babies and sharing the joy they bring their families. I love giving parents and families priceless treasures of their newborns, it makes my heart so full of love and gratitude! It is truly an honor to be trusted with the job of handling a newborn baby and documenting such a pure gift from God.
