When my client first contacted me she said she was looking for a newborn session with a focus on mostly natural images. Because she already had a toddler, she wanted to schedule the session in the comfort of her own home. I knew right away that she was the right client for me because the goal of my newborn sessions is to always capture phots that appear natural and organic. I was thrilled when she decided to book the in home session.
On the day of the session, when I first arrived to her beautiful home, I was thrilled to see the abundance of natural light she had available. This allowed me to capture images in numerous locations of her home. I like to do this because it makes each session unique and personal. I especially love to photograph families in the baby’s nursery, living room, and master bedroom. All of these locations are areas in which you spend the most time as a family, so it is important to document them. Although most of what I focus on during this type of session is the family interacting with baby, I do make sure to capture some polished portraits of baby during my newborn sessions, whether it be in the studio or in the home. These are perfect for hanging on walls, gifting to family members and using for birth announcements.
Big sister was a pro at posing for the camera and it is obvious how much she loves baby brother. She was so sweet, gentle. and loving towards him. I have so many great images of her cuddled up next to him; they are surely images that mom and dad will cherish. Baby A was such a dream. In fact, I don’t think baby cried once during the whole session. I absolutely love the classic and timeless look of the images from this session..
Here are a few of my favorites from the day.
