How sweet this little newborn session was! I got to photograph Olivia and Marc this past summer for their maternity session, and I was thrilled to get to meet their newest family member, little Ellie! Their maternity session was hands-down, one of my favorites. So if you missed it check out their blog post here! But back to their darling newborn photography session. Their bedroom was drenched in early afternoon light, and it was so dreamy and perfect. I just love when it all comes together- the lighting, the sweet sleepy babies, the beautiful parents. It was the perfect way for me to spend the day as their San Jose Newborn Photographer.

Some of my favorite photos from this session are of them just cozy on the bed together. I especially love the photo of all of them laying down on the bed snuggling. And that photo of mama looking down at her baby girl, it’s just so precious. I also adore the photos of her little feet propped up against her dad. How often do we sit and gaze at our little newborn and their sweet little feet just rest against us.

The family chose a simple white color pallet for their outfits, which was perfect! White is such a good go-to for newborn photos, because it lets you all as a family shine. Baby girl wore a little pink bow which was the perfect touch of a little bit of color. Scroll below to see more photos from this sweet session. And reach out to me if you’re looking for a lifestyle newborn photographer!
