Lifestyle Newborn Photography Raleigh NC | Moore Family

Traditional newborn photography wisdom is that these sessions should take place within the first 10 days of the baby being born.  That especially holds true for photographers who do more posing in a studio type of session, where the sleepier the baby, the better.  However, for lifestyle newborn photography sessions like this one, it just isn't as important to rush to take portraits hours after the baby is brought home from the hospital, and this wonderful session is proof of that. Sweet baby Ada spent a week in the NICU after being born, so this family obviously needed some extra time to settle in at home before even thinking about pictures.  When I came to photograph this sweet family Ada was three weeks old, and the session turned out to be a dream.

Ada was so alert and could focus her eyes on her favorite people (especially her Mama), and then sweetly drifted off to sleep towards the end of the session.  I left with a full heart and this turned out to be one of my favorite lifestyle newborn sessions to date.

Here's some of my favorites from my time spent with this beautiful family.

Open Field Maternity Photography Session | Ashley & Brandon | Raleigh NC

Open Field Maternity Photography Session | Raleigh NC

We totally almost cancelled this maternity session.  The weather forecast that day was showing storms all around during our session time, but we decided to just go for it, and you know what?  It absolutely poured rain and stormed right up until the time we were supposed to meet.  But by the time we arrived at this beautiful open field to begin shooting, the sun was out and giving us some glorious light in which to shoot Ashley and Brandon's maternity session.

When I saw Ashley my first thought was that she seriously looked like an expectant goddess (for real).  She definitely had that "pregnancy glow" thing going on!

These gorgeous people are expecting a sweet baby girl in just a few short weeks, and I'm so excited to meet her when I come for their home newborn session after she makes her debut!

SO many thanks to Ashley and Brandon for letting me document this special time for them.

At-Home Newborn Photography Session | Baby Anna | Raleigh NC

At-Home Newborn Photography Session, Raleigh NC

I'm not exaggerating when I say it's an honor to be invited into a family's home to photograph such a short-lived, joyful, exhausting, and completely euphoric time as they welcome a newborn baby.  This session was no exception, I was beyond excited to document this special time for Sam and Adriane.

I spent a quiet morning with the Hayes family just 4 days after sweet baby Anna came into the world.   Anna is such a perfect little angel, and she totally stole my heart.  Baby fever y'all, it's a real thing!

I need to pause for a second to talk about Anna's room; the nursery that Adriane created for her baby girl is nothing short of breathtaking.  I loved every single detail - and could have spent an hour photographing just the nursery.  White, cream, gray with hints of gold, oh yeah and bunnies!  Yessss.

A huge thanks to the Hayes family for letting me capture some memories for them.
