Five days after I documented Sage’s birthing day, I arrived at their home for their newborn session. Lifestyle newborn sessions are very sentimental and will definitely give you all the nostalgic feels. Baby’s grow so fast! In fact, your sweet little newborn is only a newborn for a few weeks! Whether it’s your first, second, third or eighth, it’s a very very fast phase that comes during a time of huge transition. It’s easy to miss the moments and sometimes it’s hard to embrace this time when there’s a lot going on and little sleep is had. If you can find a day, one day, just for a couple hours to schedule a newborn session, you will be very grateful you did because in no time at all, you will be looking at these photos wondering where the time went and likely even forgetting about the sleep deprivation and sore leaking breasts leaving room for the wonderful memories like sweet cuddles, tiny toes, and that adorable froggy pose that newborns stay in. The best part about lifestyle newborn sessions is that I come to you! Being in the comfort of your own home during this time makes it easier on everybody, especially mama and baby! And if your first thought was, “oh, but my home is a mess!” Just take comfort in knowing that most people with newborns live in a bit of chaos, of course! And I just need a very little amount of space in which I can easily move things out of my frame if need be. So, mess or no mess, it’s your wonderful life and it’s worth documenting!
A photo session is such a great gift for a grandparent! Pictures are so valuable. And when they are from extended family sessions they hold such sentimental value for everyone in the family including future generations. I absolutely love photographing the whole fam jam. Squishing so many people together who all love each other so damn much, who know so many things about each other, who have so many inside jokes! It’s such a beautiful sight! I even have a collection just for extended family sessions, that’s how much I love them!
