This home newborn photography session in Denver was so beautiful. Older sister was bright-eyed and full of personality, completely smitten with her new sister. Baby was also bright-eyed and awake for our entire time together! I think eye contact with newborns is one of the most beautiful things. I always welcome it when it happens.
If you’re concerned about whether or not your baby should be sleeping for their newborn session, let me settle your anxieties here. An awake baby is just as perfect as a sleeping one. All babies fuss a bit (also completely normal!), but we follow your infant’s lead, taking time to sooth and feed as much as necessary.
Here are a few favorites from this session last month! Images shot on both color and black & white medium format film.
