William | In-Home Newborn Session

Big brother Harrison was one of my first newborn sessions 4 years ago. And omgeeee I am so thankful this family continued to come back to me for sessions after that, lol! (Thank goodness for progress, right)!? Heheh!

That first newborn session was held in their home as well. However, at the time I didn't have a clue about lighting (I thought I did), but dang it I sure tried my best! So after that I vowed to never do another in-home session (for real-I am confessing!), because the unpredictable lighting scared the s*** out of me.

So instead I went on to photograph newborns for the next four years in my own little space. I continued to learn about lighting and wrapping and posing. But a lot changes from year to year, and I continue to grow as an artist (in more than just the technical aspect - the emotional side as well). So late last year I decided it was time to start doing in-home sessions again. It was time to follow my heart. I'm no longer scared of unpredictable light or space (I love the challenge) and absolutely love the intimacy of in-home sessions. I love being able to photograph a baby and family in a place that is so special to them. It's comfortable and relaxed and completely unique to you and your family.

So here's baby Will... pure perfection, surrounded by so much love.

Ain't nothing sweeter <3
