So excited to share the Howes family and their lifestyle newborn session on the blog today! I absolutely love photographing weddings, but sometimes it’s so fun to mix it up and shoot something that’s not part of my regular routine. Caleb actually made his entrance into the world about 5 weeks early, and spend 20 days in the NICU before he was able to come home. He was home right in time for Christmas, which was the best present his parents could have asked for!
We started our session in Caleb’s nursery which is decorated with the cutest woodland theme. I really loved the wallpaper behind his crib, it was such a great touch that really pulled the room together! When it comes to lifestyle sessions, there’s very little posing or direction involved. The goal is for momma and daddy to interact naturally with their newborn, which is exactly what they did! It’s honestly such a cool experience to just be a fly on the wall and witness new parents be totally smitten.
I also just have to point out how much I adore the photo of Caleb flexing his muscles. I think it’s so perfect after spending his first few weeks getting stronger in the NICU. He’s here and he’s ready to take the bull by the horns!
