There’s something so intimate and peaceful about this at-home lifestyle newborn session, despite the ups and downs of the first days of baby’s life parents may experience.
These sessions are made for you to remember how your newborn baby looked and the beginning of your journey as a new mom. It also allows you to relive those first snuggles, all the emotion and love of that special and fleeting time in your life. During a newborn session, I capture special moments of each family members with the baby, and the whole family together as well. There will also be some time for baby alone, and I love when family pets can join, too!
PS: don’t look at these if you don’t want a baby fever!
After photographing her in her mommy’s belly a few weeks ago, I finally got to meet Charlotte Mae when she was about 10 days old (perfect time for newborn sessions). And she was awake the whole time! Some babies are very curious and like to watch the whole process, which I love. As long as they’re happy, I’m good with it! I love to be able to see your baby’s eyes the day of the session. Most of the time I’ll get awake and sleeping shots, but Miss Charlotte was not interested in falling asleep while I was here, which was totally fine with me as we got the most beautiful shots of her!
I love to connect with moms before they give birth. Most of the time, I meet them during their maternity sessions. It helps create a connection between you and your photographer. That connection is important for you to feel more comfortable (it shows on the images if you’re not!), and you don’t feel like you’re welcoming a stranger in your home to meet your new tiny little baby. That connection also helps me create the most beautiful portraits of your new family you just created.
I absolutely loved witnessing the love mom and dad shared for their new addition. It’s such an honor for me to be part of your family’s biggest milestones! Whether it’s your pregnancy journey, that newborn fleeting time, or as your tiny baby becomes that fierce-funny-silly little toddler, my greatest pleasure is to document your family as it grows! Mom was so happy and emotional at the end of our session, telling me how much she loved our time together and felt so comfortable. That fills my heart with joy, as my number one priority is to spend a great time with my clients and document their most precious treasure: their baby.
Kathryn & Grant, thank you for being so kind and touching, this reminds me everyday why I do what I do, and why I love it so much! My heart is full and my cheeks are sore from smiling.
