This family told me that they remember how adorable their oldest son reacted when they introduced them to their second kid. He was so excited. This time, they were excited to see how both of their sons would react when meeting their baby sister for the first time. I felt honored to document this special moment for them.

I meant the parents at the place of birth – in the case – Holland Hospital in Holland, MI. I arrived just hours after the birth of their daughter and about 40 minutes before their sons arrived. Their grandparents just picked them up from school.

First I got some pictures of the parents with the daughter.

Then we heard some noise from the kids in the hallway. They’re here! I stood behind the bed to get their facial reaction and had my camera finger at the ready.

Both of the big brothers were so excited and wanted to take turns holding their baby sister. SO cute!
