This family is from my Maternity & Family Greenhouse session (and one of my all time favorite families). I am finally getting around to blogging about their newborn - but I’ll have to share this newborn’s 6 month pictures (and soon to come one year pictures). To say I’m a little behind is an understatement. Anyway, I have talked about this family keeps me laughing and it was no surprise that their lifestyle newborn session would be any different. Their first baby, Big Red, was photographed in my in-home studio and was so chunky and perfect. This go around, since I don’t have an in home studio anymore, I came to their house.. only to find out that they were getting ready to move to Texas. :( So, in a way, this was their last hoorah in this house and a memory that they can always hold on to. I love that this family just sat back and let me capture their version of real life. <3 Love y’all, Edge fam! See you soon for that one year session! Ha!
One of the best parts of my job is getting to watch my families grow from behind my camera lens. This is a repeat client who happens to also be one of my first lifestyle newborn sessions! This family has tons of natural light in their home which works wonderfully for lifestyle newborn sessions. We used elements of their home, like that blue chair above, to pose baby on. It will be cute to see down the road how big he is when he sits on it as a one, two, or three year old and remember how tiny he use to be. I always try to make sure I sit back and let the session just roll the way it is going to roll. I like to get the "in between" shots and and with two other little ones, there was plenty of candid moments to capture. It also allows siblings to be themselves and be free in their own surroundings while I photograph their new brother/sister.
Awake and alert shots are sometimes my favorite. Because, let’s be honest…. the phrase, “sleeping like a baby,” is a joke.. :)
I captured a similar shot not too long ago with Lily's newborn session!
Thank you for letting me be a part of your story, again! :)
Thank you again for letting me be a part of your newborn story. The little details of his wrinkly hands; the older kids playing in the background; dad finally getting his hunting buddy after two girls.. I love it all! Congrats, G Fam!
