Having a lifestyle newborn session in your home is a meaningful and authentic way of remembering a very special milestone in your journey as a family.
Newborn days mostly consist of long hazy hours of constant feeding and not enough sleep, and most parents end up forgetting the little moments in between as years go by. We’re so busy looking after our children that sometimes we don’t pause to appreciate the same hard moments that make this life so worth living.
This session with baby Audrey and her family is the perfect example of how to turn moments into gems. Getting camera-resistant toddlers to be a part of a relaxing lifestyle session isn’t easy, but having patient, positive parents who don’t stress out about it is the key to achieving great results. We tried a lot of different activities with Alfie, and just flowed with any unexpected moments that came up, laughing through everything, and in the end, got some beautiful images. In my eyes, anyway. Hannah and her hubby also had a lot of input in the direction of the shoot. Knowing what you want out of your photo session is important so that your photographer can execute and retain your vision as well as bringing her own style and vision to the ideas that you may have.
