I love working with newborns, I don't keep that a secret. And I love the type of session I do for my newborn clients. When most people think of newborn sessions, they picture the baby all squished up in beautiful wraps on blurred backdrops, cozied up in a little bucket, or the iconic straight on image where baby is wearing a cute hat while propped up on their chubby little hands.
I tried that.
I didn't like it. Not that I didn't like the babies - far from it! But I didn't like how the images turned out. I felt like I was forced and I felt like the images didn't reflect who I am as an artist. Yeah, I love a good posed shot, but that bucket really cramped my style! When I started doing what's called "lifestyle sessions" for my newborn clients, I had a whole new world opened up to me & I loved it. What's lifestyle photography? To sum it up, it's casual, real & life how it is.
This beautiful session with Noelle & her family shows exactly how amazing these sessions are -- a few hours in their home with their real furniture, real nursery, and real love. We even snuck in the guard pups for a family photo! Take a peak to see more of this gorgeous family and their new addition.
