Charlottesville Newborn Lifestyle Photography | Evelyn



This Charlottesville newborn lifestyle photography session is near and dear to my heart. I was able to take these photos for a good friend of mine through church. Although she had a baby born right after the start of the pandemic, we were all staying home quarantined prior to this so felt safe to still go ahead with the session.

There’s nothing quite like a session in your own home, whether it’s for a newborn or just a family session. It’s so special for families to have images in the homes they nurture their children in and carry out every day life in. These sessions are as personal as it gets!

I started with capturing Evelyn’s amazingly done and precious pink and girly nursery. I love all these details!

How adorable is this crib that Amy had? It’s a toy that was hers when she was little but was the perfect little newborn photo prop!

Being invited into client and friend’s homes for sessions like this Charlottesville Lifestyle Newborn session are so special to me. I get a glimpse into every day life for the people around me. And despite what we all want to think about our lives, they are so beautiful, imperfections and all!

Amy had a very thoughtful review for me after this and her family photos in the fall:

“If you’re like me and you value photographs as family heirlooms then Melissa is your girl. She is kind, patient, warm, creative, caring, and talented. Our newborn and family lifestyle photos by Melissa are displayed all around our home and they make me feel all the feels. We will cherish them forever. We look forward to many more sessions with Melissa.” – Amy
