It always feels like such an honor and privilege to be asked to enter into a client’s home to take some photos for them. I absolutely love in-home newborn photo sessions, they’re so sweet and close to the heart. So, it’s no surprise that I was excited to get to see this sweet family again after taking their maternity photos a few months ago. And I was even more excited to get to take some Walnut creek newborn photos of sweet little baby Blake. The newest addition to the family- she really was the sleepiest and sweetest little baby girl ever.

Their bedroom had the most amazing late morning light. It was streaming in through the window during their session, which made for the gorgeous images. I loved how simplistic and sweet this session was. Your home really does not have to be something super special or fancy to do a session in it. We can stick to one room or maybe two if we want. But don’t ever feel like your home isn’t picture perfect, because it probably is!

Brittany wore a super cute white sweater, and some blue jeans for her session. More and more I’m having mamas wear blue jeans for sessions and I really do love the look. It’s casual, but cute, and it really is a good representation of those newborn days. Just cozying up at home with your baby and your family.

I had so many favorites from this newborn photo session that I actually split it up into two blog posts, so this is only part one. In part two I’ll talk more about the darling nursery Blake had. Although, you can see a sneak peek of a photo from it below!
