My husband may need to ban me from newborn sessions because this sweet little guy is giving me serious baby fever! (We are definitely permanently a family of four, but COME ON! This guy is too cute!) This session was a bit out of the norm for me, and I loved it!
I am very much a lifestyle photographer (even dabbling in more documentary style, especially with my own family), and for newborn sessions, I stick with that. Until now!
I loved this session because I got to do that, plus dabble in a bit of snuggly newborn (semi) posed photos right in his home. I really only have attempted a posed newborn session once before this since I don't have a studio space, and to be honest, I just had no idea what I was doing as I started out (especially handling a newborn). I avoided those type of sessions afterwards, but after two of my own, I am very confident in all things newborn now!
I also took an online class that made me feel more comfortable with the whole idea. We didn't purchase any special wraps for the session, but still did a few swaddled semi-posed pictures, and then we took some of my more typical family in-home lifestyle photographs with his sweet parents, AND one of my absolute favorite bonuses of lifestyle sessions, his pup! This family is the sweetest, and it was so special to meet this perfect little guy. Welcome to the world, baby G!
