Life becomes so exciting when you welcome a newborn baby home. Those chubby cheeks, tiny toes and tiny fingers are definitely the new center of the home. While there are so many different ways of documenting the first moments with a new baby, I just can’t love in-home lifestyle newborn sessions more. Home is where life happens. Home is where this brand new life really starts. It makes sense.
I am drawn to lifestyle and documentary photography because this is what I believe we really WANT to remember down the road. I always imagine when my babies are 18, we would look back at their younger years together through the images we have captured and we laugh or we shed tears about the life back then. The exciting times when the baby slept through the night for the first time and the frustrating times when the baby can only settle when being held and snuggled on the couch.
Of course, on top of the realness of life, other perks about having an in-home newborn session are wonderful too. You are at home. New Mamas, you don’t need to worry about dragging your still healing postpartum body around to a studio far away. You don’t need to worry about feeding schedules and nap schedules to be interrupted by the possible traveling. You don’t need to worry about bringing your whole house with you on the trips out. Most importantly, you don’t need to worry about your baby being in an unfamiliar space. Everything is at home. How convenient and comfortable is that?!
I had the privilege to be in the Stolls’ Home for their baby girl’s in-home lifestyle newborn session. I’ve known Rose so it was really awesome to just hangout with her and document their life as new parents. I’ll have to say, I love my job for sure.
So meet the Stoll Baby and her family!
