My heart aches because I wish I had storytelling photographs like these when my babies were small. Raw, simple and honest. I love being able to deliver a session like this to a client because I know how much they'll treasure each and every photograph.
Shooting these first time parents was extra special. I could feel their love and amazement over their sweet little boy. I can still remember that feeling from when my kids were born. It's that feeling you get when you look at your baby and you just can't believe how perfect they are. I love capturing that for families.
This shot right here is life with a newborn...how many of you can remember your countertop looking like this?
The Dad. He was so awesome and loving the entire session.
A total natural.
Hungry babies hate waiting. We've all been there right? It's such a familiar scene, one that always makes me smile.
I seriously love shooting Documentary Style Newborn Sessions. They're the easiest way to capture life at home with your newborn. Believe it or not, there's a way to have a stress free photo session with your baby...and this is it :)
During Documentary Style Sessions I photograph everything. Whether it's the bottles in the sink...
or diaper changes...
even tummy time...
I document it all.
See, I told you this guy was a natural.
Baby boys, they just love their Mama's...
and you know their Mama's love those sweet newborn snuggles! If you're a Mom, you know the power of snuggles + baby smell. It's pretty much heaven on Earth.
Before heading out I grabbed some sweet details while Mom was holding her little man. I can't express how amazing this family was to be around. Their baby boy is so lucky. He hit the jackpot.
There you have it, my favorite way to capture life at home with a newborn. No stressing for Mom and Dad and a gallery full of the real life moments they shared with their baby. No silly props or Pinterest poses. Just real life and love.
