This baby was so dynamic! Her different faces were hilarious! I love doing newborn photography in Los Angeles. I typically do in-home sessions because it’s easier for parents, but I also take portraits in my studio. This session brought tears to my eyes, because I photographed the parents getting engaged, their wedding, maternity photos, and now it’s come full circle and I got to photograph this little new life!
I loved photographing this little thing. There’s something about newborn photography in Los Angeles that I really love. Everything’s super quiet and low-stress. I get to know the families in their own environment and see parents interact in real life with their little ones. This family had a beautiful, mostly-empty front room with AMAZING natural light, and this giant bean bag that was perfect for the baby and for laying on. This was Emily’s second child, as you can see, so she was a confident, knowledgeable mother. She was feeding the little one when I came, and he was happy and awake for a little while, then went to sleep. Both he and his brother got the big, beautiful blue eyes of their mom, and I had a hard time not photographing them more than the new little one.
This newborn photography session was amazing and significant in so many ways. I loved seeing the love and adoration poured upon this little girl. I pray the years coming bless this little family and the devotion I see in their eyes, for each other and for this newborn girl. This was an in-home newborn photography session in Boise. I love doing in-home newborn sessions because it’s a lot less work for the parents and looking back on the photos reminds you of the entire world that surrounded the entrance of this new life. A lot of times, our memories are charged with tiny elements that aren’t just faces.
