I hope you’re all managing to stay warm on these uncharacteristically cold days we’ve been having. To bring a little ray of sunshine your way, here’s little N. 🙂 This handsome boy was right at 30 days new for his lifestyle newborn session!
I had such a great time photographing Mr. N at his home this fall. Since he was right at four weeks old, we knew going into the session that N might not sleep as soundly or curl up quite as tightly as younger newborns — meaning posed shots would be limited. Instead, our goal was to focus mainly on the connections he shared with his mama and daddy in his own little corner of the world – the place he was first brought home to – a place that will forever be special and remembered. And we did just that. Lifestyle newborn photos are some of my absolute favorites. They are the ones that really pull on my heart strings. Seeing a family’s obvious attachment and adoration of their newest member… Seeing their faces and capturing the way they look at this tiny miracle… Even the way they touch and hold onto him, and breathe in his presence… It can’t duplicated. These moments are just as unique as their little baby. And I find it powerful to capture those moments to be relived and cherished forever. After all, they’re this small only once.
Little N — I simply want to thank you for being you. Thank you for being a ray of sunshine, and bringing so much happiness to the world. Anyone who sees these photos will be able to see just how happy and proud your parents are that you’re here. You truly are a gift. Remember that.
