Do I Need To Be In The Pictures? | Cumming Newborn Photographer

I adore photographing the joy that newborns bring to their families - which is the very reason why I think parents and siblings should be included in newborn sessions. The baby is the reason for the session, but it's also about so much more. 

Newborn Family Photography

Newborn sessions celebrate the excitement of an older sibling getting to know his baby brother. It's about the rejoicing of parents, and the new family they've formed - sometimes after great struggles. It's about new life, new families, and new dynamics.

Do you have old family photos from when you were a baby or child? Most of us do, and if you're like me, you love seeing what your parents and siblings looked like years ago. You may have even reached (or surpassed) the age your parents were when they had you. Isn't it incredible seeing your family members in the past - at the same stage in life as you now? This is why you need to be in your baby's newborn photos! 

As your children grow, they'll enjoy looking back at their baby pictures just as you do. They'll see the joy in your smile, the love in your arms, and the gentle way you kissed their forehead.

This session was extra special for me since Jenny has been my closest friend for years. She's a photographer too, so it's a huge honor when another photographer chooses you to take their photos! Jenny adores her house, and she and her husband are constantly updating it. They've even given it a name - Greendale Cottage. Since their home is such a huge part of their story, and it's filled with lots of gorgeous natural light and white walls, it just made sense to do their session where they spend so much of their time. I think their comfort level shines through in their photos!

Lifestyle Newborn Photography

I can't get enough of lifestyle newborn sessions where the whole family is involved. Yes, the whole purpose of a newborn session is to capture the fleeting time when your child is truly a newborn, but it can also be about the beginnings of brand new family dynamics.

Lifestyle newborn sessions can highlight the love of parents navigating their own new family and the joy of children getting to know their newborn sibling. Safety is always important, so it's smart to have mom or dad close when young siblings are holding the baby. You'll even notice Jenny's hand holding baby Bear steady in one of the photos. Yes, I could have her hand edited out by a professional retoucher, but both Jenny and I agreed that we loved her small presence in the photo. Looking back years from now, she'll remember this sweet moment watching over her children.

And oh my, this first photo. It's just about my favorite way to photograph a mother and her baby. When I had my own daughter, I set up this very pose, and had David take a photo of me and Olivia. If I take your newborn photos, it's almost guarenteed that this pose will be included!
