Bringing your newborn baby home is always exciting, but it can turn your daily routines into a hot mess. So, choosing to have your newborn photography session at home can be the little “ahhhhh” you need in your otherwise chaotic day. Little James here was sweet as can be, especially while he was getting cuddled by his 2-year-old big sister.
Even though all of these photographs were created in their own home, you would never know that they weren’t taken in a studio. Mom loves all things “beachy” so we covered baby James up in an aqua blue net wrap on his sandy colored bed.
During his awake time, James got a cozy cuddle from his beautiful Momma. And then he peed all over her. Bless his heart. . .
All tucked in with his new friends and wearing his lobster net cap, James was sleeping and dreaming.
So compact, like a little football, James fits perfectly in his Dad’s hands. Amazing to know that one day, James will be able to stand shoulder to shoulder with his Dad.
And we’re awake again! But this cozy wrap and furry bed soon had James drifting back off to sleep. Loving his little feet here as he’s wrapped up like he was still in the womb.
Making eye contact with a newborn can be very difficult, as they have 20/400 vision. But James seemed to be making-a-go of it in this photograph. I’m sure he wanted to stare at his beautiful Momma.
Close up newborn photographs are always important to the family. These pictures really give you a chance to appreciate all of the delicate little features that a newborn baby has.
James’ great-grandmother was visiting during his newborn photography session, and it was so important to Momma that she get a picture of her newest and oldest loves together. Such a tender moment of life spanning over 90 years in this family.
Even though baby James was the star the day, I never miss a chance to get a portrait of the baby’s siblings. Mom can always point to this picture and tell big sister that this was what she looked like when her baby brother was born.
His profile is going to change so much in the next few years, but James couldn’t be cuter with his button nose and fuzzy cheeks.
And here is the entire family all together. Big sister was losing her interest in the whole photoshoot by this point, but they all look wonderfully happy together.
