in home lifestyle newborn session in lexington ky
One of my most favorite newborn session ever. And I’ve loved a lot of newborn sessions. The fact that parents allow me into their home during the first month of their baby’s life, when they are all just figuring it out, simply amazes me and leaves me feeling overwhelming honor and gratitude. I didn’t realize just how special and precious it was until I became a momma myself. The first month of Steff’s life went by so slowly and yet felt like a blur. I mean…parents let me into their home during one of the most…trying…and yet beautiful…times of their lives…and let me photograph them…and somehow seem like they are actually pulling off this parenting thing in a somewhat graceful manner. Me…my boobs were always out and I sat in a chair with Steff in one hand and rice krispy treats in the other and cried half the time. What a wonderfully, beautifully, exhausting time it was.
This family though…I felt at ease as soon as I walked in. I knew their love story…met in a restaurant. Fell in love. Married within six months. The people I saw in front me made each other laugh…a lot. And were so loving with each other. They also made me laugh…a lot. I knew when I walked in, saw their home, fell so comfortable with them, and was already laughing from the start, that this would be a favorite session. A clear sign that I’ve made a new friend is when we can laugh with and at each other in a loving way…and that we did. Making life long friends that I truly connect with on a heart level, is one of the best parts of being a photographer. It’s why I know I am where I’m suppose to be. Newborn sessions are always longer and always wear me out. While I was certainly tired after, I still felt rejuvenated and full of so much love and joy. Momma A said she wanted to capture their lives just as they were in that moment. That we did. Y’all…THIS is a lifestyle newborn session and THIS is what I strive for each and every time these days.
My most favorite part of the session was quietly watching as momma A snuggled her new baby, soaked it all in, and began to cry tears of gratitude. That’s what I want for each and every person in front of my camera. I want every session to be a time fo gratitude and love and joy.
