I can't express how much I LOVE in home newborn sessions! There really is something special about photographing that fleeting, super precious time in the heart of a family home. In home newborn sessions take on more of a lifestyle vibe, which I feel like those first few weeks can really represent what is going on. Babies can be awake, they can be sleepy, they can be a little fussy or they can be totally content with looking at everything around them - all of that works beautifully for a great in home session, as it represents who and what your family is now, in this moment. My goal with every newborn session, is to capture that feeling, and to also capture those in between moments that you might not otherwise see. Those connections between a mother and her newborn son, that pure joy and love. Those moments when a father is getting to know all the sounds and expressions of his little one. The natural love and tenderness parents show their newborn child - those are the moments to remember. Those are the moments to capture.
I had the pure joy of photographing this family's maternity session and newborn session. To be invited into a family's life during such a precious time is such an honor. Marshall was such a sweet, calm baby for our session, and really just went with the flow. Much like his parents! It was so nice to capture a few images of grandma with her new grandson as well. :)
