This winter Northern VA newborn photo session was blissful! I find photographing newborns during the winter makes for cozy and comfortable sessions. You don’t need to leave the house, and you can even choose to have Lori Nansi, my preferred hair and make-up artist, come right to your door.
It was the week before Christmas when I arrived at the home of baby Max. He was so dear and slept the entire session. I could have been a fly on the wall during this session, just witnessing the organic connection between mom Christina and baby Max. It was so serene…until we played with big brother Miles!
Miles and Max were the sweetest duo to photograph. I adore photographing older siblings during newborn shoots. We always play games, and I will even have them be “my assistant” by clicking the shutter of my camera. I know how challenging it can be to introduce new baby to toddler, so I always make sure to make the toddler feel important. As a mother of two toddlers myself (hard to believe I have TWO), I am the first to understand a toddler’s flow. We can take breaks, play games, and/or create a quiet, calm environment as needed.
It was a joy to be a part of this Northern VA newborn photo session.
Northern VA Newborn Photo Session
I just adore how peaceful this scene is! Baby Max slept the entire time, so we were able to get those typical “sleepy newborn photos.”
Some of my favorite images to get during newborn photo sessions are of mama and baby snuggling. I find these newborn snuggles are what moms miss the most…
Big brother is so excited to welcome his newborn baby brother! They’re going to be the best of friends. I love documenting this early relationship.
I hope you enjoyed this Northern VA newborn photo session!
