Newborns usually direct their sessions – we really just go with the baby – when they need to eat, be rocked, etc. And this little guy, he was awake for a little bit during the family portraits and then he just dreamed away. He slept and slept and the sweet moments we were able to capture with his family – just precious. It is just so nice to have photographs taken at home when you have a newborn. You are pretty tired after you have a baby, right? (Okay, maybe exhausted!) Also, it’s just so special to take photos of your baby with your things in your home. This mama had some adorable things picked out for her baby boy – love the wrap, the blanket, and the overall colors she chose. When you have a session at home, the session reflects your style perfectly and we are able to create custom art that matches your home. It’s also nice to have a newborn session at home because you really don’t feel like going anywhere after you have a new baby – just trying to pack a diaper bag in those first days was overwhelming to me! Who can relate? Trying to get ready is challenging, especially if you have older siblings. Having a session at home is perfect for those sweet first days snuggling your baby.
