Lifestyle Newborn Session at Home: James



On a gray morning, this sweet family welcomed me into their warm & cozy home to meet their newest addition, James. Along with James came two golden retrievers, full of energy and full of life! One thing few people know about me is that I’ve been obsessed with golden retrievers since I was a little girl. I certainly can’t wait to add one to our very own family when we get the chance to own our own home! I always love getting to include dogs into a family’s session, as we all know how much a dog & pet is part of the family!

Samantha (James’ mom) simply amazed me from the moment she opened the door. Though she delivered this darling boy into the world only a week or so prior, she was moving about and so full of joy. Mothers are incredible, aren’t they!? We initially connected on Instagram and oh, how I’ve enjoyed following her along on all of her adventures.

Enjoy a few of my favorite images from their session! Congratulations!
