I loved that we got to do something different at this darling newborn session, we got to photograph outside! Usually newborn sessions are held inside of a clients home, but when I showed up to this session, mama said that we could photograph in her yard. I was so amazed by all of the beautiful plants, flowers, and lush greenery that they had in their yard, this mama definitely has a green thumb! What a dream it was to be able to have a newborn photography session be somewhere different. I’m hoping that this session will prompt more people to choose to do newborn photos outside, it is such a lovely alternative! Their yard was oh so dreamy and us Bay Area newborn photographer always swoon at a dreamy location!

Baby girl was born in the spring, so of course there were blooming flowers everywhere in their yard. She was the sweetest little thing, and had some amazing hair! I got to photograph their maternity session as well, and so it was extra special to be able to meet this sweet little one once she arrived. I adored mom’s white dress, and dad’s light blue shirt. Their outfits were great and they swaddled baby girl in some darling swaddles, floral swaddles are my weakness! View more of their session below!
