Lifestyle Newborn Photography Atlanta
I almost gave up on newborn photography.
I’d purchased props and bean bags and learned how to swaddle and pose babies. My photos came out well, but to be honest, I wasn’t enjoying it much.
Getting a baby to stay asleep and relaxed for all those poses was a huge challenge. Throw a toddler sibling into the mix and you had to pray the stars aligned.
My newborn photography sessions were wearing me out.
And not only me.
I sensed how hard they were on everyone – the parents and the baby.
Exhausted after one particular session, I said to myself, “that’s it – I’m done with newborn photography!”
My heart sank at the thought. The newborn phase is such a unique time in a family’s life.
Moms should have beautiful photos to document and help them remember it, but it shouldn’t be so hard.
I’d all but thrown in the towel.
But then I learned about lifestyle newborn photography.
I knew this was what I was meant to do.
No posing on bean bags, just genuine moments and connections between parents and baby? The freedom to photograph babies and families in a way that’s natural?
That’s what I’d been wanting all along!
I mean, how much time do babies spend posing on bean bags in real life?
They spend their days being fed, cuddled, rocked, kissed and loved.
A new baby changes a family’s story forever. A lifestyle newborn session captures the early days of that new story.
It tells the story of your growing family.
It’s a joy to capture new moms and dads doing what they do best – loving and caring for their new baby.
The best part? We don’t have to force it. We just follow the baby’s cues.
Is baby hungry? Let the baby eat! (and I’ll capture it)
Is baby crying? Do what you need to do to soothe him.
Is baby awake? That’s great, too.
Time to give the baby a bath? Perfect!
A newborn photography session doesn’t have to be stressful. It should be relaxed and it should reflect your real story – the story of your growing family.
I'm Brea, and I'm so glad you've found me.
