Newborn Photography Session | Canton GA

Barely a week after Clarissa and Patrick’s maternity session, I was in their home for their newborn photography session. Like all of my newborn sessions, this was very laid back. I followed this newly expanded family unit around and documented how much they love this new baby boy. There were snuggles. There were feedings. A diaper change. An outfit change. And lots of laughter.

Looking for the changes at home during a newborn photography session

During a newborn photography session, I look for ways the home might have changed with the new arrival. I want to photograph all of it. The books and the bottles. Drying racks for all the bottles. How the family pets are adjusting or trying to claim the newborn’s spots as their own. And then photograph those parts of their family story. Because these kids grow up fast. And parental memories are fleeting of these quickly changing times as new phases are constantly starting.

Let’s label the newborn baby!

Patrick loves his label maker and puts labels everywhere. I saw one that said, “I LOVE YOU” that he secretly stuck on the side of Clarissa’s desk at work. We talked about his love of labels during their newborn photography session. He pulled out the label maker and made a new one that said, “HENRY” and promptly stuck it on Henry’s forehead.

So much love

Guys. Henry is in for it with these parents. They are going to enjoy this child and love him like nobody’s business. I know they won’t take him too seriously and laughter will fill their home, teaching this kid that life is more fun than serious. And above all else, he is loved like crazy! Can I share that I’m a little jealous of them and the love they share?
