Natick MA Lifestyle Newborn Photography | My morning with Siena

Remember how warm it was a few weeks ago? And now I am hiding under a rather large (and hand-made) Hello Kitty blanket wishing for an extra 10 degrees. Regardless, fall is winding down, the leaves are covering my yard and sweater weather is in full swing.

This glorious day was sunny, crisp and warm. The perfect fall day, really. Siena and her family were so freaking cute- Siena being the first baby in a long time to actually take a snooze during her photo shoot!
I love so much about this shoot- this family and their gorgeous light filled home, the wildly fantastic Goldendoodle Barney, and the subtle little tributes scattered throughout their home of their so beloved Golden Desmond who had recently passed away. As a Golden Retriever fanatic myself- who also lost the doggy love of her life to cancer- I felt their pain but also understood the need to sprinkle the love that they felt for this pup throughout the photos.

The morning was full of feedings, poopings, wardrobe changes, and everyones favorite wicker basket. Added bonus- A hilarious onesie via the Rick and Morty show… but you’ll just have to find that yourself!

Congrats again Cimino family. Enjoy every minute!

His name is Emmett. He is tiny and adorable. He did not want to miss one second of his morning photography play time. And that is A-OK with me, because this curious little fella was so happy and interactive that it was just fun to watch. I love babies… have I said that lately?

The sun poured in Emmett’s bedroom- and what a warm and colorful inviting space it is (the rug is from Wayfair!!). All the pops of color were so fun and reminded me of how much I just love bright colors. I pace out these newborn shoots so they move along slowly. Theres no need to rush, especially when it comes to babies. They’re gorgeous little unpredictable creatures.

And I wouldn’t expect it any other way!

Sometimes babies sleep through their newborn sessions. They get happily full, snuggle into their swaddle, and blissfully nap away...

Claire was not one of those babies. 

Girl did not want to miss a thing! It's almost as if she smelled the fresh flowers that I brought in and was excited to play! 

Equally as adorable was new big brother Leo wanting to jump in on the fun... at one point exclaiming "I kiss her!!" Heart melt. 

Mom and I communicated as the days got closer to the photo shoot about style, flower color, and amount of time to block out. As for most photo sessions-- especially ones that involve newborn babies, there is a large unpredictability factor. This is why I typically cut out a little more time (closer to two hours) for these newborn sessions. All said and done this session was wrapped and flowers were cleaned up in just about two hours on the nose. 

Enjoy Bartholomew family, and welcome baby Claire!

Sunday Snuggles

Sunday funday and Sunday snuggle day! Flashback to this in home newborn snuggle session with baby Natalie! I think one of my favorite parts of newborn sessions is all the little in between moments: wardrobe changes, hungry babies, excited siblings. Natalie's big sister Cora was beyond excited to be a big sister and had a very fun time showing me her sisters room and all of her tiny clothes! She was so sweet with her sister, as I am sure you will notice from the photos below!

Congrats Lester family!!
