Michigan Newborn Lifestyle Photography Session

December 20, 2019

“Our lives changed overnight”, is a phrase I hear a lot as a newborn photographer. Parents of a newborn baby quickly figure out that they grow so fast and with that comes the need to freeze those moments in time. The magic of those first 2 weeks when we bring our babies home go right to the heart. If you want to documents real life moments as they are during these moments in time, then a lifestyle photography session is for you.

A lifestyle photography session documents real life milestones, moments and events and gives you images that are anything but scripted. Lifestyle photography photos tell YOUR story just as it is at that precise moment and are perfect for any genre of photography especially a newborn session.

I recently had the pleasure to photograph a the sweetest family. Danielle, Aran & Cash welcomed their new baby love home a few weeks back. Walking into their home I felt like Mason had just always been there in spirit, you can just see that is is right where he belongs.

I just spent time with them doing what they do, and let’s face it, at this stage it’s all about the feeding, the changing the snuggles and more snuggles.

Talking with them about their experience was heartwarming too. No one had any complaints about anything. I hard them both say what an awesome, fun, amazing miracle Mason is. How they waited for him for so long and he was worth every minute. Hearing dad talk to Mason while he cried & complained about a diaper change or mom explain how full her heart is right now is exactly what I try to capture in these photographs.

It’s was really fun to see all the details & effort that mom and dad put into creating the perfect little nest for Mason. The nursery was warm, stylish and full of sweet baby details just for him.

There’s nothing like remembering how your husband turned into an amazing dad you knew he would be or how much time you spent snuggling your newborn bebe oh so close.

Lifestyle photography naturally lends itself to newborn photo sessions. True to life, feeding, snuggling and crib shots taken through the slats make for stunning photos. Moments that may seem mundane now, make for creative shots that you’ll love for years to come. Playing with and rocking your baby are moments that you definitely won’t regret taking the time to capture as it gives you fond memories to look back on in the months to come as your baby grows and their routine changes.
