Newborn lifestyle sessions are my very favorite to capture. I love the idea of a family looking back on photos thirty years from now being able to remember what life was like the very week they brought their new baby home. They’ll be able to remember not only the sweet baby details like the new wrinkly feet or perhaps the tuft of new baby hair but they’ll also get to reminisce about the indescribable heart bursting joy they felt that day, look back fondly on what may have been their first home together or reflect upon big brother’s reaction to a new family member. There is so much emotion present when welcoming a new baby and entering a family’s home to capture it is the utmost honor for me!
This session was so special to me as it was for dear friends welcoming her newest little one. All photos were taken utilizing natural light in their home mid-afternoon with my Nikon D750 and the Sigma ART 35 mm lens. My f/stop was always 2.0-2.5 and my ISO varied from 500-1000 depending on which room of the house we were in. I upped my shutter speed whenever big brother was in the frame as well, as there isn’t anything calm or still about a 2 1/2 year old!
I am a newborn and family lifestyle photographer based out of Boise, Idaho. I find joy not only in documenting the love between my clients and their families but also from chasing my rambunctious 2 1/2 year old boy around with my camera as well. He is my inspiration for all things beautiful and good. Can’t they stay tiny forever?
