Denver In-Home Newborn Photo Session | Baby Girl Amal

I was lucky and honored to be invited back to Anne and Russell's home to photograph their newborn daughter, Amal.  Not only are Anne and Russell two of the coolest and chillest couples I've worked with, their almost two-year-old, Ari, is a photographer's dream. 

A nearly two-year-old boy jumps with excitement in his crib during his sister's newborn photo session in Denver, Co. 

Look at his face---he lights up every room he's in and I would photograph him every day if I could!  But let's get to his beautiful sister, Amal. 

A father holds his week old baby daughter at their in-home newborn photo shoot in Denver, CO.
A mother holds her newborn baby girl at her in-home photo session in Denver, CO.

She was barely a week old for her photo shoot and I'm sure she's changed a lot since then.  She put up with hat changes and outfit changes and while she spoke up (loudly) a few times (much respect, Amal ;), she was a dream.

A big brother holds his newborn sister's hand through the crib slats to calm her down as she cries at her newborn photo shoot in Denver, CO.

If you look closely you can see how she's crying here and how big brother, Ari, is trying to comfort her (the sweetest).  He was full of curiosity and genuinely wanted to help.

Big brother and mom look over the ledge of the crib to check on the newborn baby at her in-home photo session in Denver, CO.
A mom gently shows her 2-year-old son how to comfort his newborn baby sister at their in-home photo session in Denver, CO.

And his mom was there to coach him along the way. 

Their dog, "Phat Fat," (who looks so perfect in their original family/maternity photo session, you might think she was a hired model!) was gentle and sweet, just as we predicted she would be.

That sweet head tilt as she nudges Amal's hand is so perfect.

They have all adjusted to life with a newborn baby girl with total ease and while I'm sure Amal is giving them a run for their money in the "no-sleep department," I'm betting they don't mind!

Now a family of four, everyone gathers in the newborn baby girl's nursery at her in-home photo session in Denver, CO.

Okay, I think I'm wading dangerously close to "over-share" territory, so we'll leave it here.  We had a blast and I know Amal is a lucky girl to have incredible parents and a sweet and protective big brother in Ari.  (Plus, coolest names ever??)
