Little Mia welcomes Baby Jack

Still catching up posts from our trip to LA.... and this day was definitely a highlight.

I got to photograph my college roommate Michelle and her 9 days fresh, family of four!

For the first 10 minutes little Mia wouldnt say a word. She hid behind her mom shy as a mouse when this stranger with a camera came in the house. (But if she looked on the shelf, she would see a photo of me on a girl's trip with her mom to Vegas. Haha! Different time!)
Anyway, the moment we walked into newborn Jack's room, Mia turned into a Jack herself...Jack in the Box! Surprise! She was at full tilt and i fell madly in love with her! Look at the locks!

I myself know there is a transition when your new brother comes into the world. We have an awesome audio tape that i need to dig up (that my brother actually played at my wedding!) where my dad tells me
"Guess what? Mommy had a boy. You have a baby brother!"
To which i sob...."I dont want a brother! I want a sister!"
Oh man. Its classic. Thank you dad for recording that on a good old fashioned casette recorder! And dad says "Well, we can't take him back!" hahaha!
Needless to say, i cannot IMAGINE my life without my brother...and to watch Mia in her first days with a brother that will be her teammate for life, it was gorgeous.

Love you Michi + Vlad! I'm so happy to share in these new post-Vegas parts of life together.


How cool is Dad as DJ?? It was a dance party for sure.


This image says it all. That's a wrap!

As far as Ms. Photog's personal story about having her own little brother, well, all I can say is your telling of it brought tears to my eyes!!! "Teammate for life." How I love that!!
