I adore the authenticity that a lifestyle newborn session depicts. I am drawn to images like the ones below, because I know that when mom or dad look at these images from years to come they will be transported back to a moment in time when their whole world changed.
These sweet faces always brighten my day. I've known their mom for a very long time and love that I've been able to capture the beauty of her children over the years. Like any other Lumina Portraits session this was a grand adventure.
I continue to feel blessed that genuinely kind people such as this family invite me into their home to document their lives during the most magical of times. I am sure it can feel intimidating to invite a stranger into your home to create portraits of your new baby and family, but I can assure the images created during a session like this will be a gift you give yourself you never regret.
I feel like there is always a little bit of stress associated with having family portraits taken. Will your children behave? Have you picked appropriate clothing? Will everyone actually smile for the camera? I get it, trust me!
I still get giddy each time a mommy-to-be contacts Lumina to learn more about a newborn session. Why stop at a newborn session? While there is no harm in opting for just a newborn session, I can assure you that you will never regret capturing your baby's first year of life.
I think there is a lot to be said for a maternity portrait session done in the comfort of your own home. It's comfortable, there is always a bathroom available, and it's an accurate reflection of many of your days were spent during your pregnancy.
Yes, this family is as adorable in person as they are in these portraits. They are kind, loving, and just the perfect amount of silly. As spring is slowly starting to show signs here in New Hampshire I am gearing up for a busy season of portraits.
A family newborn session in the comfort of home, stress-free and abundant with love.
