You may remember this family from their maternity session this past winter. I loved being able to get to know Raquel and John a bit prior to their newborn session. I spent a lovely Sunday morning getting to know their first born, baby girl, Harlowe!
Lifestyle newborn sessions are some of my favorite sessions. No two sessions are a like! Some are quiet and calm, yet others are energetic and loud! Each family brings a unique vibe and style to their session and that's what I LOVE! My job as your photographer is to capture YOUR family as they are, not to make you look like a pinterest perfect family.
In St. Louis, you never know if a January evening will bring sunshine with warm temps or bitter cold and clouds. For this winter maternity session, we were able to get outside! Although we didn't have the sun, we were happy with the slightly warmer temps. This first time mom, made my job so easy.
I started 2018 off with this 1 day old in hospital session! Fresh 48s are one of my favorite sessions to shoot, especially when it is first time parents. There is something so special and raw about those first days in the hospital that you can't get in a newborn session.
