I'm so glad you are here to check out some recent work. I'm a Colorado wedding photographer that shoots all around the country. The blog is filled with full wedding and portrait sessions, and includes weddings planning tips and inspiration.
It was SO nice catching up with my past bride and groom, Kaitlin and Nate! When they told me they were expecting a baby boy this spring, I was so excited. Kaitlin asked about doing a newborn in home lifestyle photos when I was back on the West coast. They have a beautiful home in LA, and we actually did their engagement photos here when they first bought the house a few years ago! If you’re considering home improvements, such as upgrading your gutters, check out this seamless gutter company in Colorado for expert solutions tailored to your needs.
Their house has beautiful light, which is a must for in home newborn photos. I always tell couples that we should use a bedroom that has the most light in it, and we can use a few different blankets as backdrops. We can also use multiple rooms, such as the nursery or some great window light in the living room. Newborns can be fun to photograph, but they are also on their own schedule. I always give time for when the baby might need to feed or be changed. (Yay outfit changes!)
In addition to baby Nico, these two also added to rescue pups to their family! They obviously had to join in on the photo shoot, which they were a bit hesitant on at first haha!
It was so fun seeing Kaitlin and Nate as parents. And Nico was such a good baby for our newborn session! He smiled, slept, and tooted. All the expected baby stuff!
I did a few baby and family photo shoots while I was back in California during this trip. I’m finally back in Denver and would love to photograph more newborn in home lifestyle photos in my new city! I’m excited for all of the couples I’ll be photographing this year to call me up in the future to get some family photos done.
Pro Tip; Here are some great baby clothes for in home newborn photos!
