There is nothing greater than photographing a newborn in their first week or so of life. Stepping into a client’s (or client-friend as I call my clients, they’re more like family to me) home and documenting the little things, all things of their new baby is just grand. I definitely always try to get the family involved in these sessions because when will you ever have photos of you all together when baby is this young? It’s rare, so I always encourage family photos at your newborn session. I absolutely love the less posed, more LIFE photos. Especially when there are older siblings involved, it can be so fun capturing those sweet moments of baby and brother (or sister, or even fur baby) together.
Obviously the P family is amazing, Holly booked me for her maternity session on the beach and we talked about her sweet baby girl even before she arrived. Big brother Gavin was a ham at both sessions, he is so sweet and caring toward his little sis, Maeve…which is one of the prettiest names I have ever heard, right?! (it’s pronounced like PAVE, but with a M)
Love love LOVE the way this newborn session turned out, one of my favorites I would say – especially the “lifestyle” portion of the session with the family on the bed, just doin’ life. Maeve all bundled in the maroon wrap with the flower halo by One Happy Rabbit sure is super yummy! I had an awesome time at this session, thank you P family for trusting me to capture these moments for your family. I look forward to watching Gavin and Maeve grow through the years. xo
