{adalyn brooke} | one day new | atlanta fresh 48 photographer

Mom and Dad reached out to me when they were a little over 20 weeks pregnant and knew they wanted a Fresh 48 Session. A Fresh 48 Session takes place anytime from birth to 48 hours. Typically these sessions take place in the hospital but can also take place at home, after a home birth. I was so excited about this session, Mom and I chatted a little bit about to expect during this session and how to document the natural moments of the time short after a new baby being welcomed into the world.

During this Fresh 48 session I really enjoyed getting to know Mom and Dad. They are first time parents and we talked a little bit about the pregnancy, cravings, and how things had been waiting for their beautiful baby girl! How healthy that Mom craved fruit during her pregnancy, which is not bad at all! We had a fun conversation about Chik-fil-a and I immediately hit it off with them when I realized we are all obsessed with their Cookies and Cream milkshakes. I mean really, why make another flavor? 

Adalyn was born at 8 lbs 2 oz and 21 inches long. Although she will probably be tall, it was fun to try her into her new clothes and hats that were actually a little too big for her during this session. She's just so fresh and new! Adalyn is such a sweet baby girl, with a great temperament! We would put her down to briefly change her, and she showed that she trusted us and she loved the camera so I had to get some photos of her with her eyes open! Adalyn was born with cleft palate and she is as beautiful as can be. Mom expressed to me how much she loved this session and I am so glad they will treasure these images of their sweet girl. 

Adalyn was such a natural model and worked the camera! How sweet that I was able to get some images of her with her beautiful eyes open, which can sometimes be hard to do during newborn sessions! After a couple of minutes of course when she realized she was cold, she didn't hesitate to let us know how she felt and let out that adorable, high pitched cry that was just the sweetest thing.  

I had so much fun during this session and I hope Mom and Dad enjoy these images as much as I did! If you are expecting a new little bundle of joy and are interested in a fresh 48 or lifestyle newborn session, I'd love to meet you!

{krishan} | six months | decatur family photography

I was so excited to see this little guy, I hadn't seen him since I photographed him at 3 weeks! So much has changed in six month and he's such a big boy! Mom and Dad had a cute nautical theme that looked so cute with the decor and matching outfits! We had it all planned out to have more than just the one boat in the scene but this little guy was busy and totally didn't care we were trying to stage the area! 

I loved the lifestyle feel of this session, there's such an intimate feeling having lifestyle sessions in the home, and they had the perfect master bedroom for it. A clean space and more focus on the baby! What I also loved was that Grandma joined the fun and got in for a few of the photos. I love including all the family members and it provides such a nice variety of choices of natural interactions! 

We went outside to the backyard to wrap up our session and the little guy loved it! I can't wait to see him at 9 months. If you're interested in a newborn or family session, please contact me and we can get something on the calendar!

{yowler family} | two weeks new | atlanta newborn photography

I love meeting new families and learning about what makes their family special. Mom is a photographer and I am always excited to photograph another photographer because they get to actually be in the photos with their family! This was an in home lifestyle newborn session so the focus was capturing the newborn in her natural environment. The home makes the perfect backdrop for lifestyle newborn photos! 

I loved how natural the family was and baby girl got all the love! How cute is her older brother being so loving and giving her all of the kisses! 

I always like to spend time with not only the family for photos of the newborn and the family, but also the little things like the sibling playing with blocks in his room. Mom and I chatted for a while and just let him do his thing. If you're interested in a lifestyle family session, head on over to say hello and we can chat about booking a session!

From the two year old's that I've come across, what I notice is that they are either suuuuper outgoing or just a little shy. The way I got this little guy to interact with me was to allow him to talk about his car and we hit it off! I love the ability to add in toys, homes and hobbies into lifestyle sessions because it's a nice natural way to capture those family moments. This little guy became a big brother two weeks ago to his new baby brother and you can tell by these photos that he is already in so much love! 

Aren't they just the cutest? I'd love to meet you family and capture some special moments in your life so if you're interested in a lifestyle family session, head on over to my contact page to say hello! Soon this little guy will be a Six Month Sitter and he will have many more moments for outside playtime!

A friend of mine mentioned she had a friend that was interested in a newborn session. I was so happy when she reached out to me and I was able to photograph their 3-week-old newborn. I was happy that we got to spend a lot of time in Krishan's nursery, where Mom and Dad put some special touches to things that were important to them. This baby is so loved already. 

This little guy stayed awake for most of the session, but it was great to document his adorable eyes! He was wide awake and it seemed like he really didn't want to miss out on the fun. 

With Mom and Dad being first time parents, it's not hard to believe that it takes lots of work and patience to comfort and soothe a new baby, that does not yet know what's going on in the world!

I couldn't help but to get some closeup shots of this adorable little munchkin. He has grown so much since being just a wee-bit 3-week-old newborn! 

These lifestyle newborn sessions are the best! If you are interested in booking a session, please say hello! If you want to keep browsing some more adorable babies and loving families, head on over to the blog here!

I had the pleasure of documenting some silly moments with this family. The children were a bit excited with a new person coming into their home with a camera, but I was able to be a bit sneaky and tried to sit back and observe some family interaction. I loved the moments that I was able to document toy play, story time, and being silly with Mom and Dad.

If you enjoy weekend morning play as much as I do, I'd love to capture some lifestyle moments with your family! Head on over to my contact page to say hello or check out more of my work here!
