As a Kansas City baby photographer, I get the ultimate chance to document the spectacular wonder and awe of the first few days of a baby and their parents. I love lifestyle newborn sessions because they focus on the interactions between the new baby and their family. It’s not about spending hours trying to perfect the baby pose, but rather getting the first few moments of connection, wonderment and awe captured.
With the first baby, travelling outside the home in the first few days can seem pretty scary. That’s the beauty of a lifestyle baby photography session – you can have the baby photographer come to you! Not to mention, you’ll be able to have your photographer capture the details of the nursery, the books that the you have purchased for baby before he was even born, and the stock of diapers and wipes you have prepared for him coming home.
As a mom of three (and one on the way), I know how hazy those first few weeks with baby (especially the first one) can be. It is crazy how fast time can fly those first few weeks (even though it might not seem like it for a sleep deprived parent). You need someone to capture those first moments so you can reflect on them after the craziness subsides (I’m not promising that it will though).
In this session, this little family was as sweet as can be. Mom had this sweetness in her voice as she was rocking and nursing her baby. Dad’s gentle touch and sparkle in his eye conveyed the immense love that he had for his little boy. I loved capturing all of these moments for them to cherish.
We took them when baby Elias was only a few days old. Newborn photography is best done when babies are less than 10 days old because it is when babies are the sleepiest! With the beautiful windows pouring in natural light, we were able to capture some amazing photos of the love connection for this new life.
I hope you love this session as I do. If you want to book a session, please contact me at [email protected] I’d love to do the same for you!
