Welcome Iley Jane!

July 11, 2021 NEWBORN PHOTOS

At-home newborn family photoshoots are some of my absolute favorites! Within the first two weeks after your little one has been born is the ideal time to plan for newborn photos. Iley Jane arrived at the perfect time just before Leah was going to be induced! Her parents are smitten over her and were smiling ear-to-ear while we took these newborn photos.

Iley Jane is named after two of her strong and compassionate great-grandmothers. I’ve never heard the name “Iley” before, and I love it when unique old, vintage baby names are brought back to the younger generations.

I’m always blown away at how much motherhood enhances the beauty of a woman once they’ve welcomed a child into this world. Leah has those innate maternal instincts and you can feel the warmth of her soul pouring over onto baby Iley Jane. 

Iley’s nursery is a soft blue color with animal accents and decor throughout the room. With minimal decor and touches of sweet little adornments, this nursery had me wishing it was my room! Her woven boho rug brought the whole design of the nursery together in the best way with hints of pink, blue, and mustard yellow.

Leah and Will have two dogs, so we rallied them together to join us for some photos at the end of their at-home newborn session. Their Husky, Kaia, is 15-years-old and they aren’t sure how much longer she will be with them, so we made sure to include her in some photos.

Watching families like this one grow is a beautiful display of what life is all about, family.

If you are wondering what an at-home newborn session looks like, here are many more candid newborn photos I’ve taken.
