When I first arrive to someone's home for a newborn lifestyle session, I don't like to just jump into shooting. There's always the potential for it to feel a bit odd that a random person is in your home taking pictures (especially days after having a baby) and the last thing I would want is for a client to not feel comfortable in their own space. I always build in some time at the beginning just to talk and get to know each other. Sometimes, I'll even help decide between certain outfits or blankets, and I love this aspect of my work just as much as the shooting and editing! Wyatt and Tucker graciously invited me into their beautiful home a few weekends ago, and they were so easy to talk to, I knew from the start that it was going to be a fun session.
It's also icing on the cake when the mom takes you up to see the nursery and it looks like this. (I'm just gonna take a minute while you swoon. Go ahead, I'll wait).
The soft pink along with the gold accents gave it a sweet yet sophisticated feel, without being over-the-top girly. I think I want it to be MY room!
Enjoy some favorites from my time with this sweet family!
