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!
Oh did I ever have so much fun with this family! I loved being able to document this family with a new baby, 6 year old twins, and two teens. I love the vibrant garden and the vibrant energy this family has! The love and silliness and beauty shines right through. I love how excited their pup even is to have a new baby in the house! Of course baby Gia pretty much just slept and smiled her way through her session. She even rocked her posed shots! She flashed her bright smile, she stared in to the camera with her beautiful eyes, and she also slept and gave us some sweet sleepy expressions.
In-home lifestyle newborn sessions are wonderful! If you want this kind of newborn session, but you also want those posed studio shots, you can definitely have both! I have an add-on where I can bring the natural light studio to your home. It’s the perfect way to end a lifestyle newborn session!
