Oh, this lifestyle newborn photo session was sweet. We had to reschedule once due to overcast and rainy weather, and I am so glad we did. The light was simply perfect. Especially for film!
I had gotten to know Katie and Steven during their maternity photos, so it felt like seeing friends again on their session day. We spent time in the nursery and living room, documenting little moments along the way. With lifestyle newborn sessions, baby definitely leads the way. Pausing for feedings, diaper changes, and soothing is all part of the experience.
I adored their neutral jungle themed nursery, with adorable accents like the safari animal print crib sheets and “it’s about to get wild” sign. Thank you, Katie and Steven, for inviting me into your home to document this very special time.
