a little photo shoot
When Griffin was about a week old I attempted a little newborn photo shoot.
Some of the pictures reminded me so much of some pictures I took of Cora when she was just a few days old. What do you think?
It is crazy how sometimes I can look at Griffin and totally see his big sissy in him. There are times that it brings tears to my eyes and reminds me of how much I miss her. But most of the time I just can’t believe what a gift it is to be able to see glimpses of my daughter through my sweet baby boy. She is still such a huge part of our family in so many ways.
I didn’t get very many pictures of cutie-pie Griffin because I made the mistake of trying to take them when Mr. Levi was awake. He thought it was his job to oversee his baby brother…which would have been fine if he had just sat at a distance and watched.
But most of the time he was standing in front of the camera…
or drinking my water (which he later spilled all over the floor)…
or rearranging Griffin’s room (no progress on the nursery in case you were wondering)…
or smothering his brother (no pictures of that because I was too busy rescuing Griffin).
I think photographing newborns is so hard anyway. It doesn’t seem like it should be because at least they sit still! That is why we spent the morning with Megan a few weeks ago…so that she could capture my sweet boy as a newborn.

I am so glad we did.
Megan always does such a great job capturing my kids. And it is much more relaxing to just sit and watch her take the pictures! This picture was just a sneak peek…I can’t wait to see the rest.
