This outdoor newborn session with the B Family was one of my favorites from summer 2020.
Due to COVID, most newborn sessions were being put on hold or were very changed. This couple actually flew all the way from overseas to come have their baby in the States and also be with family after he was born. What a whirlwind! The last thing any new mama wants is to forgo capturing their new baby in this time though. I’m so glad I was able to do this outdoor newborn session for them!
Not pictured: the insane heat this day! Although this was at sunset, it had just rained and was sooo humid. Thankfully photos don’t show all the details 😉 I took a mix of lifestyle photos as well as some more traditional “posed” newborn photos with their baby in some neutral props.
I just loved the mix of lifestyle images (i.e. usually unposed and not directed, just people being people) and some more traditional poses to capture all the baby details. I often don’t do a lot of sessions in the summer due to the heat and humidity, but the look of these photos is so beautiful. You can’t go wrong with a green field in the summer. I’ll sweat a bit for some beautiful photos any day 😉
And although most my newborn sessions are in my in-home studio or client’s homes, outdoor newborn photos are always on the table (unless it’s too cold). The mix of nature and a sweet new baby is just perfection to me!
