An at home lifestyle session with newborn baby boy.

There's no better reason than a new family member to have a lifestyle session.  Informal, relaxed, I'll photograph you just as you are, capturing those precious, fleeting moments after you've brought your gorgeous new baby home from hospital.  Before she knows it, Mum to lovely little baby O here will have three boys tearing up her home, but she'll always have these photographs to take her right back to these first few days....

Family L, an at home Lifestyle session

A relaxed, family lifestyle shoot at home

Returning clients + shooting an informal 'at home' session with them is one of my favourite things to do on a Sunday morning!  The lovely L family have had a new arrival in the last year so they needed to update their photographs to adorn the walls of their beautiful home.  I enjoy these sessions very much as not only are the kids pretty relaxed being in their own environment, I find that I really relish the challenge of finding great light and interesting angles to shoot from.  I love the shots I get during these sessions, they are always natural and often unique and striking and, from a client point of view, they are very personal - a little snapshot of their life at that very moment.  I find that beautiful indeed!  Why not buy a gift voucher for a loved one to have a shoot just like this to commemorate life in 2017?!

Newborn Baby Lifestyle Shoot

If you've visited my blog before, you'll know I'm a big fan of newborn lifestyle shoots.  Not only is the subject perfectly beautiful, I also love looking for light, texture, reflection - to create imagery a bit out of the norm, in the home. Added to this is that first flush of parenthood - ridiculous tiredness combined with ridiculous joy - a fleeting moment that feels a bit hazy when you look back on it. There's no better time in your lives to have captured!

I'm actually struggling a bit to find the right words for this one, this baby girl is newborn perfection and she was made by one of my oldest and bestest friends {with a little help from her partner obviously!} and I met her for the first time the morning I shot these.  I'm not ashamed to say my eyes were a little watery - she's a lucky girl, her parents are awesome human beings and I'm so excited for them and for her - she's so loved already!

An at home lifestyle, family session with newborn baby

What do you call a group of nephews?! I don't know either, but whatever it is, I have one!  This is nephew no. 4, along with his brand new brother (no. 7!), who was a little bit grumpy the day we shot these, even though big bro tried his best to entertain him with numerous costume changes (hey, not everyone's a Marvel fan!).  My favourite way to document a new baby is to photograph the family, just as they are, as a wonderful memory of those fleeting days and long nights with a newborn!  It's gone before you know it.

An at home Lifestyle Family Portrait session with newborn baby E

My first shoot of 2016 was with this little beauty! Born just before Christmas Baby E's family wanted a relaxed, documentary shoot at home to capture life with their new arrival.  I adore these shoots, especially with a newborn as they immediately take me back to when each of my girls arrived - my house was a bit messy and everything felt pretty overwhelming. This time is fleeting, {though it may not feel that way when you're in the midst of it!} and is worth capturing, I wish I had.

Thats the beauty of 'lifestyle' shoots though, there's no need to tidy up, I won't be hiding it either because there's beauty in this reality.  This is what life looks like with a new baby and these shoots are a photo journalistic account of your life as it is now.  I think reality rocks!

p.s check out her little nursing blister - oh it makes me broody!!
