Sage, 5 Days Old.

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!

Half a Day with Elize + Attis

I spent an afternoon with this rad family. You may remember a few years back I documented the day Attis was born, so it was really wonderful to see Attis so welcoming to his little sister. He played music for her and read to her. He was also so incredibly loving mimicking his dad caring for his mama, making sure she was fed and cuddled. Ya know, a lot of people might think having a photographer spend half a day with you while you have a newborn could be too much, but actually, it’s way less stressful and more casual than a Lifestyle Portrait Session. You just go about your day doing all the things you would normally do and I can be a fly on the wall capturing all the sweet moments and messy moments and funny moments. Basically just capturing your perfectly imperfect real life. These Day in the Life sessions are my favourite type of session. I love them because they are so real and honest. They also come with a super sweet family film. So scroll down and enjoy half a day with Elise and Attis.
