I get emails all the time asking if I do newborn sessions, and my answer is not entirely straight forward.
The simple answer is no, I don't do newborn sessions. I don't know how to wrap the baby in a cute little blanket with his hands under his chin, in a basket of rose petals. I don't have the proper heaters and backdrops and outfits and props that newborn photographers have, so I always pass along the names of two photographers in town who specialize in that type of work. It really is an art!
What I do offer, however, is a lifestyle newborn session. A lifestyle session captures the "everyday" look of your new life as a family. It's all about little baby fingers and toes, diaper changes, cozying up in the nursery for a bedtime story, and it always features mom and dad. We did a session like this when Cooper was about a month old and I treasure those photos today! We were so young! So new at the whole parenting game, and it really does go by in a flash.
Today I'm sharing a few photos of baby Theo, in a nursery that looks straight out of a magazine. Enjoy! And please feel free to contact me if you're in the market for a lifestyle session!
P.S. This was an outtake of sorts, but it's kinda the best:
