August and September are bringing a whole lot of new babies from my clients, and I’m so excited! What a joy to capture Baby Beau’s Fresh 48 and rustic Muncie newborn session in the last couple of weeks!
Beau made his anticipated arrival into the world on August 14, after two long days of labor for Allison. This was a few days earlier than expected with their planned induction, but Allison was an absolute trooper and Beau made his appearance that Friday. They had originally booked the Bump to Baby experience with me, which included their maternity session, Fresh 48, and newborn session – but COVID-19 restrictions are still very much in place at the hospitals, so our plans quickly changed. Once Allison and Dylan were back home, we came up with a plan for their Fresh 48, just three short days after Beau’s birth. I loved that we got these sweet photos with him with him within days of his birth right at home, where everyone was most comfortable and relaxed.
This weekend, I returned to their home and we included Allison and Dylan for the sweetest newborn photos. They did an incredible job decorating Beau’s nursery, and I absolutely adored the accent wall behind his crib, donning his name. As soon as I saw it and the amazing light coming in from the window, I knew we’d have to use it for some portraits with mom and dad.
The reason I adore in-home newborn sessions so much is the simplicity and how relaxed the family can be during their session. Home is where we spend so much time with our families, and after having a baby, it can be overwhelming thinking about packing up the baby to head somewhere else for a session. These sessions require no prep time on the family’s end, and you get the sweetest photos of the newest member of your family.
Allison and Dylan, thank you again for choosing me to capture this season of life for the two of you and your beautiful baby boy. It’s truly an honor, and I cannot wait to watch your little man grow up! Enjoy the sneak peeks!
