Today I am sharing a recent lifestyle newborn session that was taken at the family home in Princeton, NJ. With 3 children, it can be hard to make it out of your home during the first few weeks with a new member of the family in the home. Remember that EVERYONE is adjusting to the change, not just Mom and baby.
This little girl was 3 weeks old when I came to photograph her and was keeping Mom & Dad up all night between eating and fussing from gas pains. Mom was concerned that we may not be able to get many photographs with her being so uncomfortable and sleep-deprived.
I reassured Mom that I could handle any situation and that I would use my knowledge to attempt to calm and soothe her baby so she would be happy in the photos.
Our session was a success but I could see the frustration and exhaustion that the whole family was experiencing. With a positive attitude and years of experience with babies, I was able to swaddle her, calm her and capture some beautiful moments with the whole family and each sibling.
