At Home Portrait Session with Newborn
The excitement and love was palpable as soon as I walked into their home. In the middle of the holiday season, a new child in the family, parents and adult siblings visiting for the holidays.
I’ve been enjoying moving family photography sessions back inside, and it’s not just because the cold weather is here. Photographing a family in their own environment is wonderful. Especially with a newborn in the mix. This beautiful family welcomed their second son just before the holidays. His big brother, 21 months old, was so excited to have a camera and a new person to interact with. He practiced gently kissing and holding his brother, but he was really much more excited about running and playing and showing me his Thomas the Train toys.
Welcome to the world, little one!
As is typical of newborns, he slept through nearly the entire time I was there. Snuggled into his dad’s chest, or his mother’s arms, or his uncle’s elbow he is safe and warm and at the very start of his life.
Thomas the Train, of course, made his way into his big brother’s world
I treasure this portrait of mother and child. Gentle and serene love.
And especially in contrast to this image of Dad and his nearly 2 year old. Doing a portrait session in your home can capture the complex rhythms and energy of your family.
At Home Sessions document your real life. As it is. On the day that my cameras and I are there. At Home portrait sessions capture the multi-faceted and chaotic and beautiful life you have – not a perfect idealized reflection, but a true one.
