While I primarily photograph engagements, lifestyle sessions, and weddings- I have always loved to shoot in-home newborn sessions.
I adore capturing the rawness of a child’s first few weeks in this world and witnessing the unfailing love and commitment that surrounds this precious new life. It is almost overwhelming to witness these new parents hold their sweet child, and silently, but confidently, vow to protect to their newborn baby.
Beatrice Ruth Sanford was born on December 12th at 8:22 am weighing 5 lbs 9 oz. During one of the last doctor’s appointments, Baby Bea’s parents were told by the ultrasound technician that this sweet little girl was NOT a fan of photographs. Laughing as they told me this story, I promised that we’d find Bea’s good side and she’d be a model in no time.
This sweet little newborn wanted nothing to do with our planned photoshoot, and instead, decided to prove that technician right. We decided to keep things very comfortable for baby Bea, kept her in her mom’s arms the entire time, and captured the new family at their most natural
It was raw and unstaged, and man, was it beautiful. Take a look at my in home newborn shoot with Beatrice and take a peek into the world of this beautiful new family.
