This sweet family is currently living in NC for a short period of time for work and I was so thrilled to photograph them recently. In the fall, I took Jackie’s maternity photos and we had a blast with their first born, Everly.
At home newborn sessions are heartwarming and memorable to experience. I’m always grateful when a family opens their door and allows me to enter into their home. Bringing a newborn baby home from the hospital is such a tender experience. The sleepless nights, the unknown, the joys, the fears, all of the emotions, they’re truly tender, and when a family trusts me to enter into that sacred space, I’m so thankful to be welcomed.
Preparing for a newborn session can feel overwhelming after you’ve just had a baby. Your schedule is off, you aren’t sure when the baby is going to be hungry, or when they might have a blowout (trust me, it happens), but keep in mind, we allow for plenty of time during your newborn session because the baby has a different schedule than we do. We never want to try to force the baby or your family to take photos that might not work out at the moment. It’s VERY common for us to take breaks throughout the session for feedings, diaper and outfits changes, etc. You name it, I’ve seen it all!
One thing we want to focus on during your newborn session is showcasing the authenticity of your family. Whether this is your first or fourth child, each baby is a welcomed gift into the world, and the time spent together in those very, very early days of life are truly special.
Baby Matthew sure is lucky to be a part of this beautiful family. His sweet big sister, Everly, sure does keep an eye on him. You can tell she’s going to stick up for him as they grow up together.
