This in home newborn session took place in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Newborns grow so quickly in the first few weeks so it is awesome to photograph them when they are little and cuddly. This little guy completes their family. What a wonderful feeling to know your family is perfectly completed.
Every time I photograph in someone’s home I am honored the family allows me into their private living space. It’s wonderful and I get to learn so much about the family. I was warmly greeted at the door by the dad and toddler.
Once I entered the home, to the left was a shadowbox with photos of their home under construction and first house key. I was told it was a house warming gift. What a great idea. To the right was a table filled with lots of photos of their family through the years. I can’t help it but I loved looking at all the old photos and learning some of the stories behind them.
Then I got to meet the mom and the handsome new addition. This newborn came a little early. The family looked great – they chose navy with a pop of red. The nursery is nautical themed so the photos will complement the room perfectly. The nursery was really cool. They showed me their oldest son’s name written in nautical flags on the wall. They were going to do the same with the new baby.
First, we photographed the entire family and then got all the photos with the two brothers. The big brother was energetic, playful, and so loving. After he was done with photos he went to play at a friend’s house. Then we were able to focus on mom, dad, and baby.
Both of the boys’ names start with the letter “H”. The mom looked beautiful and wore a necklace with the letter “H” on it. A newborn snuggled up close to mom’s heart is one of my favorite photos to capture.
I always count on needing to take a break to feed a newborn during a session. Holding the baby in different positions is a work out for the little guy so we stopped and he got fed. Then we finished up our session. It was fun to catch a smile and yawn on camera. They were such a pleasant family to be around.
