If you know me, I’m a HUGE fan of at-home newborn photography! I believe it is such a meaningful and relaxing way to document your family especially when you have a new baby in the home. You don’t need to worry about remembering if you packed everything (like bottles, blankets, diapers, etc.) or worry about getting to the shoot on time; instead, you get to relax and stay put because I come to you!
I recently had the sweet opportunity to capture lifestyle newborn photos of the Ellis family. I remember receiving a call from Lindsay, and learned that baby Charlotte was born about 3 weeks early and was in the NICU for about a month. They were all SO happy once Charlotte was able to be home with them, and I was so honored to capture these memories for them!
There were so many memorable, tender, and funny moments from the shoot! When we started the session, their dog eagerly jumped on the bed and kept looking at me as if she wanted her photos taken. So of course, I HAD to take a couple of shots of Holly the dog! I also included her in the family shots because she is, after all, a part of the family! In addition, Lindsay clearly has gift with aesthetics and design. Their house looked like something you see on Pinterest, and it was so warm and cozy!! I learned she has a love for arts and crafts, and most of the furniture in their home was passed down or given by family (like the rocking chair and quilt!). Lastly, when we ended the shoot, baby Charlotte fell asleep and somehow her arms came out of her swaddle. She raised them above her head, and apparently this is one of her favorite sleeping positions! It was the funniest and cutest thing ever!!
It was truly a joy capturing these memories for this sweet family. Capturing photos of them just being together and enjoying the gift of their baby girl is priceless! Hope you enjoy the highlights from their newborn session below!!
