Micah’s Dallas newborn session was one for the books! I cherish each newborn session that I get to document for my family clients. Every newborn session is so different and so full of personality! Being able to include the whole family for these lifestyle sessions is the cherry on top. I’m always so excited when the family dog wants to join in the fun! This little pup almost stole the show with how precious he was being with baby Micah! My favorite is the shot of Micah on the bed and his pup is resting his head down just watching him. Animals are amazing in how they know to be gentle with new family additions. It’s always funny to me how the family pets seem to match the aesthetic of their homes haha!
In home lifestyle newborn photography
Micah’s newborn session took place around the holidays which made it extra special! I love the subtle nods to Christmas throughout their home that we were able to include in the photos. I had to get a detail shot of their new family name ornament. Those small details are the ones that matter the most and are so fun to look back on. Micah’s sage green swaddle was also the perfect subtle nod to the time of year he was born. Light, neutral colored swaddles or onesies are often the best choice for in home newborn sessions. Neutral colors show up beautifully on camera, and create a soft feeling in the images. I love seeing which outfits parents choose for their little ones first photo shoot! If you are ever wondering what would look best, reach out! I am always happy to help do a little planning before your newborn session.

How to get the most out of your newborn session
I know that bringing home a new baby and getting into a brand new routine can be just as challenging as it is exciting. Newborn sessions shouldn’t be stressful! Newborn sessions are meant to capture some of the most precious moments at home with your newborn.
I always suggest sticking to neutral colors, both for outfits and choice of which rooms we will be shooting in. This helps create a serene, classic and clean look to your photos. Client’s most commonly chosen rooms for in home lifestyle newborn sessions include the nursery, master bedroom and living room. However, these room options are only suggestions. Don’t hesitate to suggest other rooms in your home, I am always open to different requests based on your unique home! Another tip I have for new parents, make sure your newborn is well fed before the session begins. Naturally, sometimes breaks are needed throughout the session. A happy and full baby always helps things go smoothly! Abigail Elizabeth’s newborn session was one of the sweetest I have photographed, check out the gallery below. I can’t wait to chat with you about your dream session!
