Some of my favorite sessions that I don't do or share often enough are lifestyle sessions. There's something so special about being photographed in the comfort of your own home, surrounded by the people you love most. A few months ago, I had the honor of joining Brooke and Dane in their home just a few short weeks after they welcomed baby Nolan. Now having experienced the whirlwind of having a baby myself, I feel even more touched that these two asked me to be part of this special time of their lives. It's so fleeting!
One of my favorite things is to watch new parents with their baby. That look of awe and joy can't be replicated! It makes my job so easy, too; you can't fake not being thrilled when you look at your teeny miracle! It's the best.
Aaaaand can I also mention that these two had an adorable home? That teal wall. HELLO DARLING.
A mama and her boy <3 Oh, my heart.
Ah! Is there anything any better than a fresh new baby in his white onesie, on a fluffy white blanket? So heavenly. So perfect!
Nolan was mostly awake during his session, but when he did snooze for us he looked especially perfect and angelic. There's something about a sleepy newborn!! Baby fever, anyone!?
But! When he was awake he melted my heart. Those little eyes! I adore the way new babies look at the world. Everything is so new!
These last two I just love. That moody black and white, a mama figuring out her new little guy, while simultaneously already loving him more than she ever thought she could. Magic.
