Baby Delilah's sweet lifestyle newborn session was the perfect way to kick off my 2019 portrait season! As soon as I entered Ryan and Jessica's home in Castle Rock, I was greeted with hugs from my adorable niece Ophelia and kisses from their sweet dog Butters - does it get any better!?
Lifestyle newborn sessions are one of my very favorite things to photograph, but this one was a little *extra* special because it also marked the first time that I met my new baby niece! There is a small chance that I am biased, but I think that these girls are so beautiful! It was so lovely to have an opportunity to photograph them!
I always start my newborn sessions by asking the parents if there is a specific room or rooms that they want to take photos in, and then I look for the areas in their home with the best light. As soon as I walked into Ryan and Jessica's cozy living room I knew that it would be perfect! It had a huge window with gorgeous natural light, and by moving a few small items I was able to eliminate distractions so that I could put all of the focus in the photos on baby Delilah and her sweet family.
(Side note: it is so normal for me to need to move small items while I am photographing in a client's home. Eliminating items that can be distracting in photos makes a HUGE difference in the quality of your finished photos! However, I ALWAYS move everything back before I leave.) ;-)
During our time together, we took a ton of gorgeous photos of baby Delilah snuggled up with her family (my FAVORITE kind of photos!) as well as some super sweet, minimally-posed photos of her on her own and with her sister.
Ryan and Jessica: Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph your gorgeous family!! I hope that you love these photos as much as I do! See you soon! xoxo
