A couple weeks ago I had the honor to photograph a new baby girl just a little over a week after she came home from the hospital. She is definitely my youngest and smallest client to date and I loved every minute of this lifestyle session! This family is just so amazing and the love, attention, and care that they show to their two beautiful children is just beyond anything I’ve ever seen. It was so special to be able to go to their house in the morning, while they were still going about getting ready for their day, and take pictures of them in their natural enviornment.
Since this was a lifestyle session, it is definitely different from what I am used to shooting. I always try to get candid and unposed pictures during my regular sessions, but I will also do posed, looking at the camera shots. For this session, I really just let the family go about there day and be together. I tried not to direct them at all, other then suggesting where to sit for the best light. And I think that’s why I was able to capture such amazing pictures! I have way too many that I love from this session. I also used a lot more black and white then a normally would, because lifestyle sessions just scream out for black and white photos.
This little boy is so photogenic, and he already loves his sister so much. He wanted to hold her and give her kisses. He also just wanted to play and run all around the house. And mom and dad are so patient with him, there’s definitely an adjustment period after bringing a new baby home, and this family is making it look super easy! Mom had these flower crowns that her friend made for her and we just had to get some shots of her and baby wearing them. They were so adorable! I love little babies in big headbands and bows. We also were able to get a family posed family picture of everyone together. We did this at the very end of the session, and thankfully everyone quickly looked at the camera and I was able to snap the shot. I wanted them to have one good one of them all looking together, one of their first pictures as a family!
