Pittsburgh Newborn Photographer | South Hills
Not too long ago I met this awesome couple in their Pittsburgh home in the South Hills to photograph their first newborn baby, Eli! I know I say this about a lot of the families that I photograph, but the session with their baby boy was one of my favorite newborn sessions! So of course I was ecstatic when they asked me to do a family and maternity photo session this past summer! AND she told me they were expecting again in the winter and they wanted me to come back to their home to photograph the new baby!
I love that this Mom shares my love for embracing and photographing those ordinary, yet beautiful, every day real life moments. Sometimes when you have a toddler and a newborn, you may not get that Pinterest perfect image of big brother holding the baby. Especially when big brother is still a little guy himself and still unsure of that new tiny human that recently moved in. Mom was definitely on the same page as me when it comes to never pushing a toddler into getting any closer to the baby than they are comfortable with. So I love that she was more than happy to have photos of all of them casually hanging out in the nursery together. And big brother even gave little sister a few kisses.
Mom also really wanted to have her pet cat and dog included in the photos and you know I was more than happy to make that happen! I feel that the furry kids are a huge part of the family, and most times, these furry kids came before the babies. If you have a pet and I come to your house for a photo session, there is a good chance they will be included in a lot of the photos! Especially if they are super cute and appear to perform for the camera….kind of like sweet Dobby does (check out the adorable dog in the photos below!)
I was so happy to see that Dad painted a mural in the nursery for his daughter like he did for his son! This time he painted it on a board so they could take it with them if they move to another house. If you want to see the mural and photos from their first newborn session, or the photos from their family session, scroll all the way down past these photos for the link! And I will not apologize for all of the scrolling you will have to do. When it comes to images in a blog posts, I feel more is more. I love to share a large selection of images from my photo sessions so potential clients get a good look at what a newborn session with me is like. And you can see that each of my newborn sessions are unique to each family and even to each baby!
My newborn sessions take place in my clients homes so this makes each of them unique! And because I do not bring or use any props along, no two of my sessions will ever look the same! I love to use the “props” that my families already have! I tell my clients to pick their favorite blankets or swaddle wraps and to dress baby in their favorite sleeper or onesie. And because my style of photography is a blend of lifestyle and documentary, I continue photographing when baby needs fed, changed, rocked and snuggled. I want my clients to have memories of what life was really like when they had a new baby. I take a mix of semi posed images and candid, real life images at each session.
