I haven't shot a ton of newborns lately, and to be honest I question what my style should be when it comes to newborns. When it came time to photograph my youngest son shortly after he was born, I found myself gravitating towards more lifestyle photos of him. I loved the simple, clean, not posed shots of him. I also love photographing all the love between a new baby and their parents and siblings. When it comes to wedding photography my goal is to always capture the love, and I think that has become my main focus with newborns.
That is why I was so thrilled when Tennell agreed to do this shoot at their home, primarily in Lincoln's nursery. I feel like it makes the shoot so personal, and the nursery won't always be the nursery so it is nice to have some photos of that space as well. Little Lincoln is such a handsome fella, and loved all the cuddles with his parents and sister! We also were lucky enough to sneak outside for some more portraits, and I love how those turned out! Such a sweet baby, and awesome little family!
It makes my heart so happy to photograph the new baby of one of my past wedding couples! It is one of the best part of my jobs, seeing families grow, and capturing new memories for them. Enjoy your sneak peek Jesse and Tennell! Your new baby sure is something special!
