Relationships are the threads of life. The people we meet along the journey have a huge influence on the directions we take and the things we pursue. Relationships are often what keep us going, and our friends and family have the power to cheer us up when we are down, encourage us in times of hardship, and rejoice with us in the good times. Sometimes it takes years to build these special relationships. But other times, we find natural best friends in our family members, as is oftentimes the case with siblings.
about this sweet girl
This family welcomed their third baby girl Donya into the world recently, and she came to my studio at just eight days old for her newborn session. Along with baby Donya came her two lovely older sisters: Zhela (four years old) and Mina (two years old). Because they are all so close together in age, I have a feeling that these three will be lifelong best friends as they grow up. Having a sister, especially TWO, is such a special experience that many girls hope for. Sisters are not just siblings, they are boyfriend advisors, wardrobe fixers, and ultimate listeners. Sisters are warm hugs when things are rough and pokes on the behind when you need to be tough. There’s nothing sweeter than the laughter of sisters. And that strong kind of sisterly bond is what I hope for these three beautiful girls.
For Donya’s newborn photos, Mom and Dad wanted to use lots of pinks and pastels to show off their precious blessing. Her dark hair looked so pretty there against all of the soft white and pink—she looked like a little angel as she slept there among all of the delicate petals. I really love the photos of her snoozing away on the leaf of an orchid with the huge petals blossoming overheard. She slept all the way through her session, transitioning into every new pose and set, without hardly making a peep!
After her newborn photos, I got a few of the three girls together. As you can see, Donya’s older sisters are already so in love with their new baby sister. They were so gentle and attentive in their photos with her, it just melted my heart. Next, we took a few family photos. Mom and Dad looked over the moon with their three sweet girls next to them. Congratulations to this lovely family on their gorgeous baby girl!
