I am back from my vacation (which was WONDERFUL and will get its own blog post!) and ready to share some beautiful images from a recent newborn family lifestyle session I had in Franklin Lakes NJ. I loved meeting this family and capturing their time as a family of four! A lot of photographers say that it is best to have a newborn session as soon as possible after the baby is born – preferably within first 10 days. But I love photographing ‘older’ newborns – they have more personality, are a lot more alert, we can capture them being loved and interacting with their parents – I do think that lifestyle newborn sessions offer a lot more variety than typical newborn sessions.
Baby H. was over 6 weeks old and he did GREAT at the session – he was wide awake and alert (so I was able to capture his beautiful big blue eyes), he ‘played’ with Mommy and snuggled with his Daddy. His big brother B. had a great time playing with his toys, being tickled by Mommy and thrown up in the air by Daddy!
This whole family was such a pleasure to photograph! They were relaxed, happy and so in love with each other. And capturing that love and family connections is my absolutely favorite part of family photography! And at the end of the session they told me that they had a great time, which always makes me very happy to hear:)
I absolutely loved meeting and working with them and look forward to working with them again in the future. And I am thrilled that they ordered a beautiful collage of gallery wrapped canvases for their family room – I know that looking at it will make them smile every single time!
