Lifestyle newborn sessions are seriously my favorite session to do ever. I love them, I love them, I love them!
If you have been following me for a while, you know that for a long time ago, I was really into posed newborn photography. I really loved it. I loved snuggling the newborn babies and making them look so darling in wraps and baskets. But a few years ago, I decided to move a little more towards lifestyle. And it was the best decision I ever made. I love going into client's homes. I love seeing their kiddos in their own spaces. If kids want to play with their toys, they can. If they want to jump on the bed, I say go for it!
I truly believe that a person's home is the most special place on earth. I know that is how it is for me. Which is why I love photographing memories in people's homes.
If you look at this first picture, you will see four beautiful little girls. I photographed the sweet little girl on the left's newborn photos a few years ago when the twin girls were just a little under 2 years old! They are now almost four and have a brand new baby sister! I loved watching the girls aw and smile at the new baby. I loved seeing the sweet sister's interact with each other. They wrestled around, gave great big group hugs and there were plenty of kisses for the newest baby sister. I can't help but think about how these four girls are going to be the best of friends and perhaps enemies at times. But I am sure that they will love each other for the rest of their lives. And they are so lucky to have the best parents to help guide them along the way!
I love babies!!! I love photographing newborn lifestyle sessions. I love capturing sweet moments with brothers and sisters and with mom and dad! I love how comfortable people are in their own home. I love seeing a family in their surroundings. People, especially children, are at ease! They don’t have to worry about making a mess in someone else’s space, or not bringing the right snack for their kiddos, it is seriously a win-win!
Photographing a birth had been on my mind for a long while. It was kind of a bucket list item that I was aching to fulfill. So I asked one of my very pregnant friends if she would be willing to let me photograph the birth of her son! I was incredibly lucky because she said yes! I was so excited to start this adventure as a birth photographer.

The Hafen family has gone through a lot of trials before sweet baby Owen was born. Shanda suffered through several miscarriages between her sweet girl Aria and Owen. It was such a struggle and Shanda was kind enough to share some words with me about her experience with bringing Owen to the world that I would love to share. Her words about her love for her babies here on earth and in heaven are ones of hope. And I loved reading her experience. I hope you will too.
When I was pregnant with my second little guy, my friends, Talon and Emily announced that they were pregnant too!! In the span of just 3 months, there were 4 of us girls in our group of friends that were pregnant! Three of us with boys!
