The Bigelow Family

Newborn sessions are always an honor for me to photograph. The lifestyle element of being in the family’s home, where they are comfortable, really helps me to tell such an organic story. I am able to see how they move in their home, how they go about their routine, and incorporate those elements into their session. Haleigh and Scott are first-time parents to Ellis, well, with the exception of their fur baby, Zola. Before Ellis came, Haleigh and Scott were in the process of finishing and restoring their home. One of my personal favorite elements is the stone fireplace. It is one of the first things you see when you walk into their home and part of their everyday living space. And many hours of those first few weeks are always spent on the couch, snuggling those brand new babies.

I hope to have many more opportunities next year for more lifestyle, newborn, and in-home family sessions. I truly believe that every session can feel relaxed and easy and one of my favorite ways to help clients feel comfortable is to photograph them where I know they are comfortable: at home.
