Some of my favorite newborn sessions are those photographed in the family’s home. Home is warm and comforting providing a space for me to focus on capturing the pure love and joy of this new chapter in the family’s life. Those emotions are almost tangible in these photos.
As new parents there is nothing more you want to do than sit and stare at every detail on the child’s face as they sleep. Every flutter, every sigh, every smile is as though it were their first. It was so beautiful to watch Ramsey and Josh, brand new parents, stare lovingly and thoughtfully at their tiny bundle of absolute beauty. Still in complete awe at how their life has changed but been made more beautiful all at once, they look down at their daughter and at each other, smiling, laughing, and loving every second of it.
As Dr. Seuss said, “Babies are such a nice way to start people.” I could not agree more. Welcome to the world Noa!
I love how the protective instinct of household pets, namely dogs, kicks into full gear when newborns arrive home. These furry family members have no idea what is going on but they sure do know it’s important and life changing. Perhaps this sweet face also just wanted to be center stage for a hot minute. 🙂
Newborns grow so quickly within those first couple of weeks in the world. Photos of those tiny toes, long fingers, and pouty lips will only remind you how important it is to stop and embrace every moment with your child and family.
