The minute I walk into a newborn session, I’m touring their home and chatting about their birth story. I’m becoming invested in their story and making friends with their pups. I’m hearing their overwhelming joy spill into every exhausted yawn. These little moments that fly by so quickly, tell the most beautiful story of new life and family.
When a family comes to our session ready to play and connect with each other, I know I’ve communicated well that is my hope for our time together. I want nothing more than the wild chaos of brothers chasing one another and sweet snuggles from baby sister. As always, it is my goal to create images that tell the story of a family’s love for each other and that usually involves a lot of activity when their children are still little.
I love walking into a newborn session and having the freedom to capture life as I see it. It’s taking breaks for a feeding, stopping to pet the pups and re-swaddle the little one. Life with a brand new little one is a beautiful, exhausting time in a family’s life and I get so much joy from every session!!
When I first spoke with this beautiful momma about what she wanted to capture with this session, she said she just wanted all the little moments. The way she and her husband interact with each of their precious little ones with their tender touches and special connections. Music to my ears!!! We started our session and they truly spent our time together connecting to their children, it was magic in every way.
Lauren was worried that her little one had gotten too big for a newborn session at 7 weeks, but that's the beauty in lifestyle photography, the perfect time is now. There is a simple beauty in the minutes that become our everyday as we watch our babies grow.
