Boho, Beautiful and Natural. Newborn Portraits...

The early months of this year have really introduced me to newborn photography- and not the usual type of portraits you see while scrolling Pinterest, or social media sites, but newborn photography within the home. Lifestyle-type newborn portraits.


The months of March and April introduced me to a season of newborn photography, and I'm not going to lie- I rather enjoyed it... the break from wedding photography. Photographing babies, while mostly sleeping, is very much a different world than photographing a full wedding day.


But I really feel like the brief escape into newborn photography created new talents within me, that I didn't know even existed. That's the beauty of photography or honing a craft... you are never quite done, are you?


The following photos were a privilege to do, not only because time had slipped and the "newborn" stage had passed by a few weeks, but because the baby was truly a miracle baby. A gift from God. When told your body can't, God says, "I can."


Introducing, Cody Sage Leonora.

I love photographing the details around the home- it adds to the final gallery.
