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!
Lifestyle newborn sessions can be combined with wrapped poses so you get the best of both worlds. The family interaction (fur babies included), but also some sweet images of just baby alone. I like the variety that this provides to families. I have always been a strong proponent of lifestyle in home sessions for newborn photography because it does capture your life in that moment. That house. Those rooms. That crib (that they probably have never slept in.. yet). I just feel like they capture so much emotion down the road and you are instantly taken back to this time in your life where you are sleep deprived and just trying to get the hang of this whole parenting thing. This is one example of a lifestyle newborn session that is combined with a wrapped portion. Congrats, C family on your new bundle of joy!
Tipton is ONE! It seems like just yesterday I was taking maternity portraits of his gorgeous mama! Tipton's family opted to have a one year session in home and let me document their family party, including a cake smash. In addition, we were able to sneak in some individual and family portraits before he got all messy ;)

Oh Miss Lucy! All smiles for her first birthday! To document Lucy's first birthday, we first captured some cute shots and then she got to dig into the cake.. She didn't quite "smash" the cake, but I think she enjoyed the icing. For cake smash sessions, I love keeping it simple with outfits.. after all, you're hoping they make a mess of their cake! Bloomers or simply a diaper are perfect! Mom picked up this adorable little cake from the local Walmart and we coordinated with balloons and a banner. I'd say it was a pretty successful session. Happy Birthday, Lucy!
Cake Smash Sessions are a perfect conclusion to documenting your baby's first year and can be done outside or in-studio.
