I love coming back for newborn portraits for my maternity families. It feels like a bit of a celebration for me to get to see the precious babies and the families so full of excitement and love. There is no greater honor than having a returning client message me for these events.
I recently got a message from a mom that I took maternity pictures for in the Spring. They had welcomed a beautiful baby girl and were hoping for some lifestyle newborn portraits. Lifestyle newborn is all about capturing a family in their home. They are best done in the morning because that is when most homes have the best lighting. On top of pictures of parents and siblings loving on the baby, I try to capture portraits of just the baby.
Well, this day was dark and dreary. It actually harkened back the maternity session where ten minutes before the session the temperature dropped and beautiful blue skies turned very grey. Luckily, this time we were inside! Even with the grey skies outside, baby’s nursery had a beautiful big window and there was beautiful light in the family’s front room.
Big brother was definitely enamoured with his new sister and mom was excited about all of the bows! I was so happy to be able to capture these memories for the B Family and their precious baby girl. She will always be able to look back and know that she is well loved.
Congratulations Brown Family!
I didn’t have my first newborn portraits done until my third child was born. I offer affordable mini packages to help families with a limited budget enjoy this luxury. Contact me today to find out more!
