New parents amid the pandemic have been battling a lot over the last several months. Their journey into parenthood is vastly different for most compared to pre-covid parents, with its own set of hardships. The pandemic’s restrictions and fears have made it hard for new parents to enjoy their new journey into parenthood.
So when Lauren and Garrett reached out to me for their at-home lifestyle newborn session with their precious daughter, I knew I would go above and beyond to ensure that the new parents would feel safe and comfortable about the sessions. Before their session, I sanitized all of my gear and during their session I wore a mask the entire time.
The best part about lifestyle newborn sessions is having minimal to no contact with the baby. How is this possible? At-home lifestyle newborn sessions are focused on the parents’ connection with their newborn baby. Parents do all the holding, touching, and loving while I am busy capturing these precious moments.
We spent time in Ruby’s nursery, as well as in Lauren and Garrett’s master bedroom for most of this session. I absolutely love Ruby’s nursery decor, with its sunshine and rainbows and earthy colors. Ruby wore earth-toned onesies and outfits for her newborn photos, with a focus on the color green throughout the series.
I am so honored that Lauren and Garrett invited me over to capture such special memories for their beautiful family. These images will be treasured for generations to come, I just know it!
Congratulations, Lauren and Garett! Ruby is a beautiful little girl, and she is lucky to have you both as her parents!
