The view a mom has rocking a newborn to sleep


This is my third in home newborn session with this beautiful family. And I’ve loved them all! It’s pretty awesome to look back and watch them all grow over time.

Baby Stella

Baby Scarlett

Last but not least… Baby Henry!!

He’s a sweet little addition and loved by the family already. Big sister Stella cannot get enough and is really enjoying being “mamas helper”. Scarlett takes a little more time to warm up, but boy when she does is it cute! This session was all about letting the girls love on their new baby brother. Letting moments happen naturally in between everyone taking turns holding Henry was what made it special and true to their new season of life . Laid back, love filled!

This mama knows precisely how to style and bring together a simple nursery that is oh so perfect. And she knows how to coordinate outfits for in home sessions. Comfortable, simple, adorable, lived in neutrals and patterns. Take notes everyone! She may have her hands full these days, but she’s knows what she’s doing.

No added to-dos, just added memories to your life.
