Victor – Vancouver, WA Newborn Photographer
Welcome to Victor’s newborn session!
When I received the text that Victor was arriving, I was so excited! His mama, Heidi, is one of my dearest friends. You can find her beautiful maternity session HERE.
After Victor’s newborn session, I asked Heidi some questions about Victor’s name, and how older brother took the news of his new promotion to big brother, and other details. This is what Heidi had to say!
Why did you decide on the name you chose?
We decided to name our son, Victor Antil. Victor is my step dad’s middle name, and Antil is my husband’s Father’s middle name, Andres in the Myan dialect.
Nixon calls Victor baby Blueberry because early on in my pregnancy he wanted to know how big the baby was and I said the size of a blueberry so he became baby Blueberry.
How did you find our you were expecting?
I took at least 20 pregnancy tests. We took a blood test for the gender and it came back inconclusive so we had to wait for the ultrasound.
We put the gender in a cupcake and had the kids bite into the cupcakes to reveal the gender. We all Thought that the baby was a girl so we where all in shock with another BOY!!
Nixon was very upset he wanted a sister.
Still to this day he says remember I wanted blueberry to be a girl but he is a boy.
When and how did you tell your kids you were expecting a new addition? :
We told our kids and family on Christmas day. We had Nixon open a present with a big brother shirt inside with Ultrasound pictures in front of his older siblings that are 17,21 and 22 yrs old.
How did your birth story go?
Victor was 6 weeks early and I had to have an emergency c section. The whole experience was very traumatic. I only got to see Victor for a second before he was taken to the NICU but I was instantly in love.
What are your favorite baby details?
I don’t really have favorite baby details. I just love my little. He is such a sweet baby.
He loves to cuddle and be wrapped up.
He does not really cry just makes little grunting noises when he is hungry.
I love how much Nixon loves his little brother and needs a bro bro hug first thing every morning.
