In-home, lifestyle newborn photography is getting to be my favorite sessions. There is something so perfect about capturing photographs of a family in the place that they are most comfortable…their home. I find that moms and dads are able to take a deep breath and just be themselves in these sessions which always results in the best (most real) images. Kids are in their familiar territory and tend to just be themselves. The in-home, lifestyle newborn sessions are especially close to my heart…bringing home a new baby is one of the most memorable experiences that parents will ever have. Those first few days are magical, spiritual, beautiful, chaotic, exhausting, and full of a love that you can’t quantify for someone that you just met.

Here are a few photos from a recent lifestyle, newborn photo session that I did with the Stout family. If you would like to book a session, please contact me.

I paid sweet Leighton a visit at Methodist Hospital in downtown San Antonio for her Fresh 48 Newborn Photography session couple of weeks ago. She couldn’t be more precious and I can’t wait for her in-home newborn session. All the gifts that God gives us are so amazing, but new life has to be one of the most generous and undeserved gifts that He gives.

I absolutely adore this family. They have invited me into their lives on three other occasions (Urban Family & Balloons and Sock Monkeys & Dylan @ 3 months) to capture the sweetness of their family. On this day, I was there to capture them as they loved on the newest member of their crew…Ryder. The in-home, lifestyle family photography sessions are turning into my favorite photo sessions. Kids and families in their everyday surroundings produce such beautiful, memorable images.

Congratulations Israel, Daphne, and Dylan! Ryder is perfect.

Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do…but how much love we put into that action. ~ Mother Teresa

You might remember this family. I met up with them in April to capture the three of them before Peter’s arrival. Looking at these images, brings such a warm feeling to my heart. Their love for their boys…their joy over Peter’s safe arrival…their thankfulness for the blessings given to them.

Love resides in this home…

This little guy was born just before Thanksgiving (yes, I am behind on my blogging…waaayyy behind.), but aren’t his Turkey feathers the cutest thing ever! His name is Cayson…you might remember his mom’s maternity photography session that I posted a few weeks ago.

He made his photographic debut at only 5 days new. I encourage all of my newborn-parent clients to do their sessions before the baby is 10 days old. After 10 days, babies tend to not be as sleepy and start stretching out which makes those curled up poses more difficult to get. If you considering a newborn photography session, please contact me two months prior to your due date to make sure I have space for you on my calendar.
