As a mom, there are so many things you think you’ll never forget about your newborn baby. The fuzzy hair, the dimpled knuckles and the cute sounds as they take a bottle just to name a few! But during Baby Eli’s cozy Fremont newborn lifestyle session, I was reminded of so many more that I had already forgotten in just a few short years from when my son was born!
Baby Eli surprised everyone by arriving four weeks early! Puppy dog brother, Jamie, is still getting used to sharing the spotlight, but before you know it, those two will be like two peas in a pod, starting shenanigans and keeping their mom and dad on their toes.
It truly was such a gift witnessing these early weeks and the bonds between Kinsey and Eli as well as Alex and Eli that have already formed. That initial feeling when they arrived home with Baby Eli and that “Now what?! OMG now we’re responsible for this tiny human being” feeling never truly goes away, but it starts to be your new sense of normal.
Newborn lifestyle sessions weren’t really a thing when my mom had me, but boy how I wish they were! They’re a lot different than regular portrait sessions and require a little more time to tend to mom and baby’s needs. I love capturing the family’s connections and little baby details by finding the best light in your home, and one thing is for certain:
There truly is no denying what an absolute miracle Baby Eli (or any newborn baby) truly is!
TO THE NEW MOM & DAD
Kinsey and Alex, it has been such an honor capturing such milestones of your guys’ lives! As a photographer, there truly is no greater compliment! From your proposal, engagement and wedding and now the start of your little family, it has truly been a pleasure! Baby Eli is in such wonderful hands having the two of you as parents, and I can’t wait to see what the next number of years has in store for the both of you!
Your cozy Fremont newborn lifestyle session was such a joy to shoot! Enjoy your first holiday as parents and soak in all those newborn baby snuggles while you can 🥰 They grow up way too fast!
