Anyone who knows me knows I love love love Newborn Lifestyle sessions, and this particular session did NOT disappoint! Kristyn contacted me while she was pregnant because she wanted to capture some newborn images and loved the natural and relaxed lifestyle vibe. I’m so glad that she did, and that I was able to capture this beautiful family in their gorgeous home.
Lifestyle sessions are just perfect when you have other children – it gives them the freedom to be in a familiar environment, to play with their own toys, and have breaks as needed (or in this case, read books in the nursery). These sessions are all about going with the flow, and working around the needs of the baby and the rest of the family as well. When breaks are needed we take them….when hungry, we pause for feedings…when a diaper change is needed, we pause, we include it all in the photos (after all, that’s all part of their story!).
Jeff and Kristyn’s daughter Addy really didn’t want to leave her brothers side. It really was so sweet, we were able to capture some absolutely stunning images.
As for Maxwell, I am in love, I could have just sat and stared at him the whole visit, behaving all ridiculously cute for the camera, or being observed by his big sister.
I’ve actually really struggled to choose images to share with you on the blog, because I just seriously love them all!! To me, they all tell part of the story and so choosing favourites is pretty much impossible!! But here you go – a little glimpse into Maxwell’s Newborn Lifestyle session!!
