Newborn babies are delightful, sweet, angelic, happy, soft, cute, sleepy, and innocent. The first few days and weeks are exceedingly special and memorable. Newborn photoshoots allow you to remember and enshrine those precious and cherished moments. We are so excited to feature this newborn photoshoot of this adorable little cutie named Harvey IV, whose nickname is Ivey, with his beautiful big sister and parents. After reviewing these photographs, you will immediately be filled with love, joy, and happiness. One of our favorite captured moments from this special day is when Ivey’s big sister is laying on the bed with him, and she has the biggest smile on her face while looking at him. We can tell she is going to be a great big sister!
We would love for you to continue reading about Ivey and his family, as well as viewing the gallery below.

Did you know what you were having? Yes
Share your baby’s birth story. Ivey arrived 8 weeks early due to complications with pre-eclampsia. He spent 2 months in the NICU, which was the hardest time in our family’s lives. We are now happy that he is home and is a vibrant 1-year-old.
Describe his/her personality?
Ivey is a true Momma’s Boy, with Daddy close behind. He shares a special bond with his 4-year-old sister that makes your heart melt.
Did you experience any challenges after your baby was born? I had an overproduction of breastmilk. We literally had to buy a 2nd freezer just for milk. This was so crazy because I couldn’t produce for my first child, which was a major eye-opener that every pregnancy is different. So, don’t be too hard on yourself if you don’t produce a lot. It’s just the luck of the draw.
How has motherhood changed you? Motherhood has forced me to truly get to know who I am and what I stand for because I’ll be teaching these things to my children. Motherhood has also pushed me to do things that I never thought I was capable of.
What is your advice for new mothers/parents?
1.) You don’t have many years with your kids in the house, so cherish every moment. 2.) Parenthood should be a judgment-free zone. Everyone is trying to figure it out, so don’t be too harsh if someone isn’t parenting, the way that you would. 3.) Schedules should become your new best friend.
