This chic lifestyle newborn session was photographed at the family home in Princeton, New Jersey.
The Meier’s are good friends of my husband and I. In November, they came to my studio for a holiday mini-session and I was told that they were expecting another baby! I was so excited that they mentioned wanting me to either come to their hospital room or their home after the baby was born for some family and newborn photos.
Unfortunately, the timing did not work out for a hospital session as I was photographing a wedding but I did come to their home once they were settled and took some lifestyle images, as well as, some posed images of baby.
Daniela was 3 weeks old at the time of the session. That morning Mom said baby was very fussy and almost cancelled the session. I talked them into keeping their scheduled appointment because the baby is just going to get older and I didn’t want them to regret not having the photos at this time.
Afterward, Mom said she was so glad we didn’t reschedule as I was able to calm the baby in several instances and it made everyone more at ease.
