Cozy Newborn Photography in Sneads Ferry NC

This cozy newborn photography session was photographed in mid December. It was cold outside, which made this lifestyle session extra intimate. My in-home sessions are always cozy, though!

I aim to make all my sessions as easy and comfortable as possible for my clients. I go with the flow, encourage feedings and soothings as needed, engage with siblings so they don’t feel left out, and simply aim to artfully document what those first few days at home with a newborn is like.

Big brother was super sweet. He was very calm and helpful during the session. I think it’s always a big transition for an only child to get used to the arrival of a sibling, but this guy was just delightful and cool as a cucumber. It probably helped that he and daddy spend quite a bit of time together in another room while I spent some time photographing mom and baby in the bedroom. Something undeniable, even for a toddler, about an in-home cozy newborn photography session, is that overwhelming comfort of home.

In this Sneads Ferry, NC home, kids will grow, love will grow, and memories will grow. As a photographer, there aren’t many things better than witnessing the natural connections that happen at home! Mom and baby snuggling, dad and big brother playing together – this environment made for some amazing captures.

Are you ready to see those meaningful connections create lasting memories? Let’s partner together. Contact me for details.
