Immediately after meeting this family, I knew we were going to have a fun session! This Mama had explained to me that her first son was fussy at his newborn session, so she was keeping her expectations low just in case her second son was also fussy. Well, he was not very fussy at all and within the first few clicks of my camera, we got a great family shot! I showed the Mom the picture on the back of my camera and she was over the moon excited! It’s safe to say that we were able to get more than just a few pictures (partly because I have a serious issue with taking 1,089,098 pictures at every session). Other than hating being on his belly, Lawson was incredibly relaxed. The family had a very laid back vibe and style, so the Mom wanted to keep things natural (which also happens to be my personal favorite for newborns). We did lifestyle family pictures and some simple posed baby pictures with neutral colors and I just love them!
My favorite thing about being a newborn photographer is the people I get the opportunity to meet. I love hearing their life stories. How they met, life before children, their careers, and, for first time parents, the joys and challenges they’ve had in the first week or two of parenthood. As my clients well know, I like to chat! After spending an hour with this Mom, I felt as if we had know each other for years. She is such a joyful, positive, and warm person. I am so thrilled for her and her husband as they welcome their first child. He is already loved beyond measure.
I was so excited to capture a session that reflected their clean and classic style. The Mom wanted to keep it simple with a lifestyle session at their home and also some outdoor pictures. It all came together beautifully and I am so excited to hit the “send” button on their gallery email!
