St. Louis Newborn & Family Photographer telling the AUTHENTIC love story of family
The best thing about lifestyle newborn sessions is you have more flexibility with the timing of your session. This baby boy was 7 weeks old for his newborn session. My main goal when shooting these sessions, is to capture your family as they are. That may mean a sleeping baby, an awake baby, or even both! We don’t spend hours trying to get your baby sleep.
I am SUPER excited to share this in-home newborn session. This session is a bit different from a lot of the newborn sessions I have shot but it is a direction I would love to start moving more into with my work. This session was approached with more of a documentary style and I couldn’t be more happy with how it turned out.
It has been a month or so since I have shot an in-home lifestyle newborn session. I forgot how much I missed them! This all boy session was a great way to get back into my newborn groove.
I think by now everyone knows my passion for shooting fresh 48s. They are hands down my favorite sessions. There is something about those first few days that you just can’t capture during an in-home newborn session. I also think those are the moments and feelings that are hard to remember as a parent, especially a first time parent. It is such a whirlwind of emotion squeezed into a short period of time that you feel sort of high yet so exhausted at the same time. I personally have never had a fresh 48 for any of my own babies and now that I shoot them, I deeply regret it.
Lifestyle newborn sessions are some of my favorites. Although, they are just as unpredictable as an outdoor family session, I personally love the real emotion that these sessions have. I shot this lovely family for an in-home this winter. I love when I get to meet clients prior to their newborn session. It makes the process so much more relaxed for everyone. We spent most of our session laughing and talking about the struggles of parenting.
I spent a lovely Saturday morning with this new family of five. This lifestyle newborn session really represents why I love shooting this type of photography. When I arrived, the family was still getting everything together to get the session started. I took a quick tour of their adorable home to check out the lighting and such. There were so many cute little spots throughout their home that I simply loved.
Lifestyle newborn sessions are some of my favorite sessions. No two sessions are a like! Some are quiet and calm, yet others are energetic and loud! Each family brings a unique vibe and style to their session and that’s what I LOVE! My job as your photographer is to capture YOUR family as they are, not to make you look like a pinterest perfect family.
I know I have said before but I will say it again, Fresh 48s are hands down my favorite sessions! The emotions that are present in these sessions are so raw and real. As a new mom, you try to memorize every little detail of your new baby while fighting the pain and sleep deprivation that comes those first few days after delivery. I try to capture all those little details about a newborn that you want remember but that often change so quickly!
From the moment that Lindsey contacted me for her twin girl newborn session, I was excited! Who doesn’t love twins? I remember bringing home my first baby boy and how long it took my husband and I to get into that parenting groove. That is why I am always in awe of twin parents! They seem to really get into that groove so much quicker. Lindsey and Mike were no different.
