What a delight to welcome baby Ophelia to the Marcus Family! I’ve been journeying along with this family for five years now, since their sweet little girl Vivi was just a newborn. They took the leap to become Annual Pass members a few years ago, and I’ve seen them often to capture their little gals. Ophelia makes THREE gorgeous girls for these creative and kind parents, and each little lady is vivacious, colorful, brilliant, and charming, which makes my job extra fun.
Ophelia may have weighed in at under five pounds, but I have a feeling this tiny gal may just be the mightiest. She will have to be to keep up with her big sisters! I laughed a lot during this session as the newly minted big sisters lurched into shots, tumbled across the bed, and generally inserted themselves into Ophelia’s spotlight. But it wasn’t just them trying to ham it up — it was these big sisters bringing their new baby sister into their tribe. I also watched as they caressed her soft hair, studied her impossibly tiny fingers and poked her little nose. Each gesture a sisterly whisper of, “You’re one of us”. And now that the Marcus sisters outnumber the grown ups in the house, mom and dad better watch out; I think they’re in for some adventurous and delightful years.
