Bring me all the newborns! I just adore lifestyle newborn sessions. There is something so special and important about these first moments as a family. I am always beyond honored to be asked to capture this milestone.
My approach to lifestyle newborn sessions is about the same as a family one. I like to keep things simple and flexible. When you sign up for your session, you will fill out a short questionnaire about your family. With that information, I will build a loose game plan for our time together. I honestly find these sessions easy and fun. A home with a newborn is naturally busy which gives me so much to observe and photograph. Even when you are not actively doing some thing for your child, you are still loving on them. All the diapers changes, snuggles and general chaos needs to be captured so you don't forget these precious days.
I always take my cues from the baby and parents. Baby's needs are met first and I don't allow the baby to fuss for a photo. I don't use props of put baby in fancy poses. I aim to capture this moment in time in the space you call home. I love incorporate the baby's bedroom and any sentimental items you may have collected for them.
This sweet guy was so easy...just like his big brother. He slept the majority of the time and barely made a peep. His big brother was so proud. Here are a few of my favorite moments with the Hudson family.
