Oh how sweet it is! There is nothing quite like the simplicity and excitement of newborn lifestyle session. And these pictures of baby RJ prove it. I was thrilled to get a chance to hang with him and his parents, Rory and Audra, and capture their new little love on camera.
Fun Fact- Rory is an old friend of mine! So this newborn lifestyle session was a good excuse for us to catch up! The fact that I got to steal a few snuggles on new baby yumminess was a bonus! Yep- I love my job!
Newborn sessions are held in one of two places: my studio or the clients home. I enjoy either option and both have their individual perks. My studio can be set up with fun back drops and an endless supply of props and I can all but guarantee good lighting. But, there is also value in having a newborn lifestyle session in the comfort of your own home. Your home is the space you’ve so carefully prepared for your little one and the space you usually feel most comfortable. And those reasons make an at-home session very special.
Let’s talk about baby RJ’s adorable nursery for a second! The natural color palette was so calming– it made me want to take a nap (and hopefully it works like a charm for getting RJ to sleep, too!). I just loved the animal prints Audra chose from Etsy to display over RJ’s changing table.
I couldn’t have asked for a more laid back and compliant newborn than baby RJ! I swear, even though he stayed away for most of this newborn lifestyle session, he barely made a peep. I guess he just didn’t want to miss out on any of the action.
Walley- the family dog- was also very, very sweet. You can tell that Rory and Audra had a lot of practice parenting their “fur-st” baby, Walley and that he is still trying to figure out life with a new baby in house. I’m sure everyone will hit their stride soon, and it’ll be like baby RJ has always been there.
Here’s to many happy memories in your beautiful home as a family of four!
