The third kid. There is something about that one. Two older siblings to love and adore him and parents who have been down this road and take it all in stride. Which is necessary when it comes to the third kid because the third kid means chaos and I could not love it more.
At a newborn session with that third baby (and fourth, fifth…), there are so many balls in the air. One kid needs a snack, the other is crying, mom is soothing baby and dad is bouncing back and forth. While it is chaos, it is beautiful.
I know we moms of younger children get tired of hearing “One day you’ll miss this” while dealing with toddlers melting down in the grocery store. But if something is said over and over, there must be something to it. And that’s why I love photographing those moments for my Sweet Wally families. One day it will be missed but one day you’ll have our images we created to look back on and reminisce.
It was truly a fun day hanging out with this family of five outside of Nashville. Beautiful babies, a gorgeous mama and dad taking it all in stride. Enjoy…
If your third baby is on the way and you are ready to capture the chaos, I’d love to chat about scheduling a session. Please reach out here so we can do so.
