Congratulations to Lauren and Flavio on the exciting news of expecting a second child! It’s time to dive into the whirlwind of emotions, crazy cravings, and…oh, did someone mention maternity pictures? That’s right! Little Miss Iyla completely understood the assignment for her mom’s maternity pictures, and dare I say, stole the show. We sang and danced, and she was full of hugs, snuggles, and posing suggestions.
Having a second child is like stepping onto a thrilling rollercoaster ride, where the twists and turns are a whirlwind of joy and chaos. It’s a whole new level of adventure that will make your family even more extraordinary. I try very hard to make sure the brother and/or sisters-to-be are part of the maternity picture experience. The bond between siblings is a treasure worth cherishing. I encourage your firstborn to interact with your baby bump, kiss it, and share their excitement. These precious moments of sibling love will become cherished memories for years to come. And hey, who knows, maybe your little one will become an expert at taking adorable baby bump selfies!
It can definitely be a challenge to get younger siblings to participate in photos, that is why I make it fun and playful with music playing on my phone to keep the mood light. While posed pictures are lovely, candid shots capture the true essence of your family dynamic. Let the little one explore, play, and be themselves during the photo shoot. Some of the most heartwarming and hilarious moments happen when we least expect them. So, relax, have fun, and let your genuine love and joy shine through. Santa Rosa Photographer
