I can’t even handle these cute big brothers. Can you? Meet sweet baby A, and her big brothers. Firstly, I love these relaxed lifestyle newborn pictures. This session was done in Riverview, Florida, a few weeks back. Although, baby girl did not want to sleep while I was there. She did NOT want to miss out on any of the fun. Which is totally fine! I don’t stress and help families relax to know I am capture the moments that matter. Babies do their own thing. I give you a few tips if you want some more simple posed images to help them pass out right as we start. However, that doesn’t mean every baby does that.
That is why my newborn photo sessions are always baby led. They really do call the shots of how things flow. Lifestyle newborn pictures start with a plan of a few shots that are important to your family, but if you let me just capture you and your family in your space without too many “posed must haves” I promise you will end up with more moments that will matter in time.
Often, we are just hanging out during our session. I am there to look for light, moment and storytelling that can make these images stand out in your memories. Trust me, you won’t remember the late night feeds, baby stuff being sprinkled around the house, and all those baby details. Additionally, that may mean you have time to feed baby, change, do the things that babies need, and I have some time to photograph the fun around you. Like Nerf shooting skills. I will take it all. No Nerfs in your home? Well, then maybe it is the nursery I document. Or a special homemade gift. Maybe it is a pet. Your story comes in many different points of view. I adore the everyday.
However, I also apprecaite portraits with personality, so that is my goal going into every lifestyle photo session, too. A newborn photo session is the perfect time to just let me capture you and yours in the comfort of your home.
Currently, I am taking newborns for September for weekdays and have some weekend openings in October for newborns. Or if you are looking for a short and sweet mini-session for your family this fall, please check out the availability for sessions around Tampa – HERE. Additionally, these mini-sessions give you a taste of custom photography on location around Tampa Bay. The best part is they are quick and it often means I get to see the same families year after year. Watching babies grow before my lens may sound cheesy, but it is the best part of my job!
