In-home Newborn Lifestyle

I was so excited when this sweet new mom contacted me about doing a newborn lifestyle session at their home. These sessions are some of my very favorites because I love documenting life in a natural way. I love seeing the sweet expressions on new parents’ faces as they gaze at their precious new baby. I love watching them provide love and comfort to their newborn when she’s upset. I love watching new moms and dads interact with each other, knowing how a new baby deepens the love and connection between the very people who created her. I love everything about newborn lifestyle sessions.

Her parents were so adorable with her, so gentle with her, and so loving to one another. Now that my kids are a little older and my days of having a newborn in our house are behind me, I love spending time with new families and watching them adjust every moment to being a party of three or four or five.

I love how newborn lifestyle sessions allow me to document all those moments that seem so routine and constant to new parents now but will one day be nothing more than a distant memory.

And I’m super excited once again because this precious little sweetheart is now almost a year old, and mom contacted me again to do a family session for her first birthday. In addition to being excited to see how she’s grown in the past year, I’m so appreciative of clients who hire me for multiple sessions. It’s such a compliment to me to know that my clients love their images that much and that they put their trust in me again to create more images they’ll love and treasure always.
