In home Newborn and Family Photo Session

There is just something so whimsical about little girls twirling. These little beauties started their brother’s newborn session off with some fun dancing in the living room while their mom finished getting ready. This is what I love about coming into people’s homes and doing lifestyle sessions. The kids are so relaxed because this is normal territory for them.

After some fun twirling photos and meeting their sweet baby brother, we headed back to the master bedroom to get some family photos on the bed. The bed is a great spot for in home family photos because it’s a soft place for kids to land. {Literally} If they are flopping around or if they “drop” baby, it doesn’t usually matter because that landing is soft. Also master bedrooms usually have great light! This room was no exception.

I was so honored to photograph Rachel from Rachel Kline Marketing and Creative , based here in Lancaster, Pa. She is a gem of a person. If you are looking for website updates and marketing help, she’s your girl! She does social media, blogging & copy write, web design, graphic design, & SEO. Click here to read more. Or if you are a mom and want something of interest to listen to while you work or play, she co-hosts a great podcast called The Thrive Podcast. Plus she’s a mom to three adorable kids, she understand “mom life”!

Kyle and Rachel were naturals. They reigned the girls in for photos and then when the girls had enough Kyle went out to the living room to chill with the girls while Rachel and I stayed put in the beautiful light to get the “mommy and me”, as well as the solo baby photos. This usually works well because it gives the ones who don’t enjoy getting photos a little “down time” before we pull them in again.

And no newborn session is complete without getting some one on one photos with dad! I love it when dads are involved and “show up” for their photo session with good and cheerful attitudes! It completely changes the vibes of the session. If dad is grouchy about photos it adds stress to the mom and the kids feel the tension. Thanks Kyle, you were a champ!

Photo sessions don’t have last for hours. And they don’t have to be painful! We find the light and then we gather the family together and go! We start with the snuggles and kisses and tickles. While the kids are distracted, that’s when I start snapping. Thank you Kyle & Rachel for inviting me into your home to capture these moments, you guys were so great!
