I think one of my favorite thing about newborn lifestyle sessions, is that when it’s just families spending time with their newborn, they’re still getting to know each other. They’re still learning what makes their baby happy, how their partner interacts with them, and all the new expressions and things their baby will do every day. And I get to watch that happen!

I also get to capture firsts- this time baby A’s first time actually sleeping in her crib for example. Sometimes first smiles or laughs, first milestones like rolling over- because you’re all in your home doing the things you normally do.

Including pets is a bonus too! Normally it’s dogs, generally cats run when I come in the house. Not this time though! This kitty wanted to be in every shot, and was definitely interested in his new sister.
