Welcome to the world, Christopher Joseph
You may remember this family from their adorable gender reveal with the blue balloons and smoke bombs. Well, this little one has finally made his appearance, and big brother Jonathan, big sister Emilia, and mom and dad couldn’t be happier or more pleased.
Some fast facts about this tiny nugget: he was born at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut; he weighed 9 pounds, 1 ounce at the time of birth; he was 21 inches long; and his big name has a special meaning: his middle name, “Joseph,” is for his paternal grandfather, Salvatore Joseph Sarcone. I just love it when family names are carried on through new arrivals!
For this session, in true Shauna fashion, we had the best lifestyle session. It’s hard after a new baby to remember all those tiny details from the hospital, they all seem to blurr together and eventually get lost in the memories of newborn’hood’. That is why I absolutely love love love births and fresh 48 sessions. Those first moments are some of the most important of your baby’s life and usually get forgotten.
Personally, I think my favorites from this session might be the ones of Meagan, Jonathan, Emilia, and Christopher piled into bed together. Don’t they just look so cozy, so perfectly in-sync with their new family of five. Jonathan looks so happy to have another man in the house, and Emilia looks so proud of her mommy and her new baby brother.
The images of mom, dad, and baby show that sweet newborn glow. Christopher already loves to snuggle his parents, and they are more than happy to oblige! The shots I took of skin to skin contact are inexplicably sweet; it’s like I wasn’t even there. I am so glad I get to be a part of these unforgettable family bonding moments.
And, of course, we needed to document Christopher’s teeny toes and feet! (Aren’t baby feet just the best?!) For the most part, he was such a peaceful, sweet babe. We had to memorialize his first-first birthday with a precious cupcake from Nora’s in Middletown, even if he can’t eat it quite yet.
Congratulations again to the Sarcone Family!
