The Durnil Family + Newborn Session

Lifestyle Newborn

This sweet little in-home lifestyle newborn and family session is such a welcome sight right now! Everything about these photos is soft, sweet, bright, and hopeful. I guess that’s one of the reasons I love photographing lifestyle newborn sessions so much; there is peace, love, and promise abounding within the walls of a home during those first few weeks after a baby is born. It’s like time has stopped and the only thing that truly matters – family – gathers together while the wings of angels envelop them.

I have blogged about Amanda and her little family many times before. This blog is the crowning jewel of the year long journey I went on with them. As a recap, Amanda hired me to photograph her pregnancy announcement, maternity, and birth sessions, as well as her baby’s newborn session. It was a wonderful experience and one that I hope I can repeat with future clients.

One thing I have to note is how delicious baby Finn’s nursery is! Soft shades of grey and white blanketed every surface, including the charming hand painted woodland creatures looking down over Finn’s crib. Everything about the space was clean and comforting and I can imagine Finn and Amanda spending many happy hours together in that quiet little room.

How sweet are these photos of baby Finn with his parents and big brother?! My heart just melts at the sight of them and I hope yours does too! I am so thankful I was a part of this experience and I hope the photos will bring the Durnil family many years of enjoyment!
