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.
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.
These sweet babies were 5 weeks old and already alert and checking out their world. Lucky for them, they have an enviable nursery filled with art, beautiful vintage items and heirlooms handmade just for them. I wanted to move in!
This lifestyle newborn session was a double dose of baby fingers and baby toes. It’s incredible to think about the bond these two bubs will have. Instant best friends! Somehow their mom and dad were calm and seemed to have it all under control. I was a mess with only one newborn, so I was duly impressed. I can’t wait to see how they grow!
