Graydon | Newborn

I had a relaxed, lifestyle session with baby Graydon and his lovely family. I loved the little interactions between Graydon and his proud, big brother, Birch. There is just something about brothers that pulls at my heart. I think Graydon and Birch are going to be buddies, and it reminded me a lot of my own two boys who are the best of friends now at 3 and (almost) 5.

This session really exemplifies what a lifestyle newborn session is about – photographing a family and capturing their life, beautifully, but also keeping it real. I love photographing all of the little awkward faces and poses that newborns assume on their own, the rambunctious toddler who wants to finish his work in the sandbox, and all of the love that is wrapped up in the simple moments. There is a place for photography studios, poses and props, but what really moves me and what I am passionate about is this right here:

Damaris’s Lifestyle Newborn Session

Damaris’ lovely newborn session reminded me of why babies are born in the springtime. Her session was a little lifestyle, a little portrait, and complete perfection. I loved spending a few hours with Matt & Stephanie on their farm about an hour outside of Athens, and photographing their family of three (plus pups, horses, goats, and chickens, of course). It is evident that Damaris is adored by her mama, papa, auntie, and furry brothers – Jager and Griffon. Her DIY woodland-themed nursery was so cute, and full of personal touches. She is a lucky little girl. And I am a lucky photographer to be honored with the opportunity to capture such a dreamy time in their lives. Thank you for having me, Matt and Stephanie!
