Where to even begin with this darling newborn session. I shared this sweet families maternity photos a few weeks back and I’m so excited and I’ll be sharing their Bay area newborn photos with you today. We took these photos outside since the weather allowed. And I was so excited that we did it. I’ve always wanted to take outdoor newborn photos. And oftentimes I try to take families outside for some photos, even if we are at their home doing a session in their home. But to do an entire newborn session outside felt so special and sweet. And it really did allow for a natural and beautiful feel to their newborn session. 

This sweet little girl is so loved by her three big brothers. It was so darling to see them interact with her and love on her, even with her just being a few weeks old. You can already tell that they are all enthralled with her. And that she is the perfect addition to their family! She had the best head of hair too! I always love it when babies have full heads of hair because it’s so sweet and such a fun trait to see! 

For this outdoor newborn session we met at one of my local favorite spots. I knew it would be a hit with these little boys because there’s lots of opportunities for running around and climbing amidst taking photos. This really is turning into one of my favorite spots for photos, especially that spot with the white fences. It is just a perfect neutral backdrop. Scroll below to see their darling newborn photos. And also be sure to look back and see their maternity photos as well.
