This newborn/family session took place when baby M was only a week old. M was sleepy and snuggly but older brother R made sure we got some action shots as well. I love observing different family dynamics when I photograph families at different stages of life. You can tell Sarah and RIch aren’t first time parents—they are calm and cool and seem to have it all figured out. I’m jealous!

Sarah wrote in her model call application that she hoped to “capturing relaxed and intimate portraits that I wouldn’t be comfortable doing out of the house. Nursing, snuggling in bed, and quiet moments are most interesting.”

I’m also a lover of quiet and contemplative moments and I love that we were able to capture a mix of crazy kid antics and quiet bonding time.
