At two months, Baby F is just starting to show his personality with smiles and a curious gaze that takes in everything around him. Mom wanted to be sure to capture this sweet time as her maternity leave winds down. With big sister home with a cold, she got to enjoy some extra mama time and be part of our photo shoot playdate.
With two parents in the field of education, it’s no surprise that my morning with the Love family involved a lot of hands on learning and a science experiment. First up was a pancake breakfast. I have to admit, I was totally impressed by how much Colgan actually let the twins help. Baby sister was still at the sleepy, quiet stage at only a few weeks old, so she mostly stayed cuddled in mom or dad’s arms. After filling their bellies, a baking soda volcano was up next (with a small break to play while the paint dried). All in all, it was a quiet winter morning and I’m so glad that they invited me in to be a part. Take a peek below.
A few days after Miss Quinn was home from the hospital, I visited for a lifestyle newborn shoot at home. These first few days home can be overwhelming for parents, so a lifestyle shoot is a relaxed way to capture the brand new baby in a relaxed environment, as you adjust to this new life. We took some newborn portraits with mama for a bit (with breaks for nursing and changing) until dad brought home her big sisters. Quinn took it all in stride, even with all the added excitement.
Are you thinking about an in-home newborn session but worried about the chaos of every day life with a newborn? Don’t stress at all! I work with you to find the best light and work around your real life. I can help move things around and we can push that laundry pile to the side (I don’t know when I DON’T have a pile of laundry to fold). This is minimal posing and props – just capturing all that newborn goodness and your real lives as a family. Call me or email me to chat more about the details.
