Heirloom Beatrix Potter-Inspired Garden Nursery Lifestyle Session at Home | Columbia, SC Newborn Photographer
They sat snuggled together on the floor of the nursery, washed in the glow of the soft light that came through the window. The new mama gazed lovingly into her precious baby’s face and called her name in the sweetest sing-song voice as the sweet baby girl, dressed in a soft pink gown that was her mama’s, slept soundly in her daddy’s arms. You could see all the love and thought that went into every detail of this cozy space, and the looks in their eyes told that nothing could compare to the joy of having their precious little one — the one they had dreamed of and prayed for — finally in their arms.
Each time I enter a home for a newborn session, I can always feel a sense of the change that has happened, the shift from the new little life that has been welcomed. In every home I visit, the feeling is different; for this newborn session, there was an overwhelming sense of calm and peace. As I watched the new parents interact with their long-anticipated rainbow baby, I couldn’t help but notice how natural they both were in their new role. The overwhelming love they felt for their precious baby girl was palpable, the joy of their answered prayer visible in every interaction: the way they held her so gently, spoke to her so soothingly, calmly reassured her when she cried — it was impossible not to feel their amazement over finally being able to hold their little girl in their arms!
Snuggles and tickles on mom and dad’s bed, the room filled with the most gorgeous morning light. Reading favorite stories. Mom and daughter baking cookies together while dad and son played together on the floor. Dancing together to favorite songs. A sweet and happy boy, grinning with the biggest smiles after kisses from his mama, and his spunky, independent big sister eager to help, show the way, and jump into all the fun! There was such a feeling of coziness and warmth in this precious family’s home, and it truly felt like the most perfect fall Saturday morning as I snapped photos of them enjoying each other and their time together during their lifestyle family session!

What I love most about being behind the camera is telling the story in front of me, highlighting the joy and relationships between loved ones and capturing each personality!
