Guess who’s going to be a big brother | Fayetteville NC Newborn Photographer

I have photographed 103 newborns in 3 years.  Each and every one  have left me with a slight longing for another of my own, but I was able to send them home to their mommies with no loss of sleep due to midnight feedings.  I was hesitant to have another baby.  My first perfect boy was only a pound and a half when he was born.  I don’t think I can go through that again.  But now that my boy is going to be 4 years old in 2 weeks…I miss having a little one.  I want my little boy to grow up with a sibling (or two) so that when I’m gone, he will still have family.  I don’t want to leave this earth leaving him alone.  I want him to have the joys of nieces and nephews (well in my case, I only know the joy of nephews!) one day.  I want him to fight with his sibling and protect them when there is a bully around.  I  had 2 little brothers of my own, I want the same for him.  Plus, he’s a tad spoiled.

So, in October, I will welcome the newest Small baby, who will hopefully not be so small, and will be patient enough to wait until its time to enter the world.  One of my greatest regrets is that I wasn’t skilled enough for great photos of Aidan as a baby and newborn.  I can’t wait to document every tiny milestone and day with the newest baby Small.

And in honor of this occasion, I would love to give away a free newborn session!  Please post below if you are expecting a newborn within the next 3 months.  I will choose a winner (or 2 or 3, depending on the number of entries) at random for a free full session and free 8×10 print.

Now without further ado, the proud big brother, who has refused to even let me pull of his big brother shirt long enough to wash it.
