This lifestyle newborn photography session blew me away. I am always amazed at how easily people welcome me into their homes, and let me just take over and snuggle their baby. This beautiful couple was no exception, and I left feeling like I made new friends. They chose to go with brighter colors, and we wrapped sweet baby boy in a bright jewel toned blue wrap. It tied in perfectly with their gray walls and decor.
Baby F was eight weeks old at the time of his session, much older than typical newborn sessions. I found that there are a few perks to working with older babies– the first being that they are so much squishier! I love that baby chub! Also, no red and blotchy newborn skin! It made editing a dream. I also planned on him being awake and bright eyes for the whole session, but he was so sweet and snugly and slept nearly the entire time. He even gave us a few smiles, which are a photographer’s favorite to catch.
If you are expecting, and are interested in reading a few tips on getting your baby ready for photos, this article highlights some great pointers! Being prepared and knowing what to expect will only make the whole experience more enjoyable– for everyone! And of course, you can always reach out to me if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
