Lucy: Newborn Photography

I made my way to Lucy’s parents’ house on a sunny Sunday afternoon, excited to meet her and document her first few weeks of life. The gorgeous light coming through the sliding glass doors in their living room created the perfect place for Lucy and I to “work” together!

Sometimes as a photographer, we need to take a photo or two just for ourselves as a way to look at the scene from a new perspective or direct focus to a smaller detail of the big picture. More often than not, those photos wind up getting included in my galleries because they bring me such joy!

Suzanne and Matt had set out several outfits (hey, a girl’s gotta have options, even if she is only two weeks old!) along with some handmade blankets that family members had given Suzanne at her baby shower earlier in the year. It was so special to them that we were able to incorporate the thoughtfulness and support of their family as they embark on this new adventure with their little one!

Including this baby blanket gifted to the family by Lucy’s aunt was a wonderful way to personalize her newborn session!

Collins: Newborn Photography

Newborn photography is such a special way to document the first few weeks with your newly expanded family! Babies grow and change so quickly that you’ll be taking the training wheels of their bicycle before you know it - why not have some pictures to look back on and relive the precious moments after you first brought your child home?

Collins is a little sweetheart and completely stole my heart during her session! She was very expressive for being only two weeks old and was snuggly the whole time we were taking pictures. I find that two weeks old or younger provide the ideal window for newborn photography because they’re not as alert and wiggly as little ones become as the weeks go on! Every baby is different, of course, and just because your child is more than two weeks old does not mean you can’t still enjoy some beautiful photographs of their young days!
