from { belly to baby } with Melissa Landres Photography

I had the opportunity of photographing this sweet family as they celebrated the arrival of their very first baby not too long ago… he was just perfect. I remember him being so tiny and cute, and was born with the coolest little hair-do. When mom called to tell me that they were expecting again, I was overjoyed for them! Their little family was now growing from 3 to 4 and they couldn’t wait to welcome their newest little love into their lives. And she couldn’t have been any sweeter!

We met for Maternity photos here in La Quinta, CA. It was warm out, but such a beautiful day!

Then when this little lady finally arrived, we scheduled her “big photo shoot”. She was happy, and sleepy and such a great model!
She too was born with her very own darling little hair style, and she is just beautiful.

When they found out they were going to have a new baby join their family, their hearts were overjoyed. When they found out that they were actually going to have *two* babies to love… their love grew beyond measure. Not just one tiny miracle, but two tiny miracles to love.

This photo session day was filled with so much excitement and joy. Just watching these two brand new little babies interact with each other, and react to each other, was simply amazing! And even though they are identical twins, their little personalities were already so different, heehee! I had a hard time to tell them apart, but the family all knew exactly “who was who”… and both of these big sisters were so thrilled to help! And they were especially excited to hold the babies when it was their turn for pictures!
I felt like we were all smiling the whole entire time, it was such a special day…

baby Dylan | Melissa Landres Photography

When I am planning for a newborn session, I am assuming the baby will most likely be really sleepy most of the day, because that’s pretty much all that new babies do for the first couple of weeks! But sometimes, I get to meet little ones that are a little more alert and curious, like this cutie! Baby Dylan was wide-eyed for most of his newborn session, and his mama wasn’t surprised at all, hee-hee! She said that he was quite the curious little fella, and that he liked to look around at things a lot. He actually reminded me of my oldest son, who was very much the same way when he was born… so I knew exactly what she meant!
Either way, awake or asleep, he was adorable! It is kind of a treat when I get to photograph babies with their eyes open, and even more special when I can get them to make eye contact with me like this little guy. Those big beautiful eyes are just the cutest! And mom & dad will look back on these photos and remember just how alert he was in his first few days <3
