The session

Past Day in the Life clients of mine called me to see if I'd like to do their newborn portraits at their home in Suffolk, Virginia.

I'm not sure there's a much better way to spend a day than cuddling a sweet newborn baby, don't you think? I think it's a little slice of HEAVEN!

Their home is warm and welcoming. The nursery is a perfectly crafted room that compliments who they are as a family. Beautiful shades of blue and the most thoughtful vintage touches. 

I could see how proud they were of their sweet baby boy and I could see how much love they shared. It was one of the most heartwarming scenes I had ever seen in my life. 

Sometimes, you're just so happy and so full of love, you've got to sit back and just take it all in.

I think choosing to have newborn photos done in home is a really intentional choice. You're making the choice to document those first days, making a deliberate decision to include your home as the background of your story. You're building a legacy from the start. 

Here's to parenthood, the most wonderful, chaotic, wild, and beautiful journey you will embark on.
