I love shooting lifestyle newborn sessions. Don't get me wrong - posed newborns in their true squishy naked goodness are heavenly, but to me, the essence of a newborn is the magnetic force of love he draws close. Mom breathing in his smell, dad cradling him close, big siblings looking on in wonder. Plus the added bonus of a lifestyle newborn session is that you don't have to rush to capture baby in his very first weeks of age. It's okay to wait a month or two and acclimate to this new normal before inviting a photographer into your home to capture the new babe in all his glory. That was the case with this sweet little brother, who was such a doll to photograph with mom, dad and big brother E.
