Welcome to this beautiful world Aiden! This session is a perfect example of why I love shooting lifestyle newborn photography in my clients’ homes. In many families, the first baby of the family is of the canine variety and when I shoot in your home, we can include him in the brand new family portraits! Of course, the main star of our session is Aiden with those gorgeous blue eyes.  His expressions were so cute from a little smile to a yawn, and he was already starting to find his thumb.  I wouldn’t be surprised if he becomes an efficient thumb sucker.  His nursery and the rest of the house was filled with beautiful sunlight.  I loved peeking in on his gorgeous mama rocking him in his nursery.  And doesn’t that smile for his dad make you melt?

I love this story.  This amazing husband contacted me to buy a gift certificate for his wife.  He wanted to buy her a family session for Christmas.  I love that they are celebrating their new family with some keepsake photographs.  They were fun to work with and could this location be any more awesome?  When clients pick places that mean something to them – it makes the resulting images even more special.  Enjoy!

    These are gorgeous…what a beautiful family!

I love January.  It is the time of year that all of the fall craziness has died down and the holiday stuff is put away.  It is also the time when I start blogging again and you can see what I’ve been working on lately.  Sometimes with being able to share on facebook so easily, I neglect my website a bit.  As far as resolutions go, I am going to try to blog more frequently.  Plus at least for family sessions, I like to wait until all of the cards have gone out and gifts have been given before ruining the surprise.

I love when a family embraces the cold of a Michigan winter…and this family gets bonus points since they recently moved up from Georgia.  I bet this weather is a little bit of a shock to their system!   I have so many favorites from this session.  I love how you can almost hear the laughter and joy.  And that incredible curly hair is awesome.  A family that laughs and plays together is the best in my book!

I really love lifestyle family sessions.  There is something about capturing the real life as a family that just melts me. I love that this family will always remember the time that the dog wanted to be a part of the family portraits too. They will always remember how their little girl was obsessed with trying to put on her cowboy boots by herself and then immediately kicked them back off. They will remember her “cheese” face as well as her natural laughing smile.  When she is 6, she will look back at these photos and tell the stories as if she remembered them (Believe me, I live this everyday with my 6 year old).  She will say “Remember that time that we had photos and I carried my lamby everywhere?  I tried to share it with the photographer.”   Even more so, when they move into their new house next year, they can all look back and remember this first house as a family of three who were waiting patiently for number four to arrive. (And this photographer is patiently waiting for their #4 as well…I love to cuddle newborns during their sessions!)

    LOVE lifestyle sessions and this one is no exception! Great work, Becky!! Oh and seeing their Boston made me miss mine so much!

Sometimes a session just completely inspires me.  When Anna contacted me about her maternity photos, I was giddy with excitement.  Not only do I love maternity images but throw in some incredible yoga poses?  Awesomeness.  It was so hard to pick favorites from this session.  Bonus of my inability to decide…?  You get to see a LOT of Anna’s gorgeous session.  It was fun to explore some different processing for this session as well.  A facebook poll was split between my normal processing and the hazy dreamy processing.  I love them both for different reasons.
