Miss Olivia - Lifestyle Newborn Session

Miss Olivia - Lifestyle Newborn Session

I met Wes and Kelly a few years back at the church we all attend and since then, we have been

blessed to call these sweet people our friends. Together, Wes and Kelly lead in worship at

church, constantly displaying for us all the heart of Jesus in song. When they asked me to take

some photos of their growing family, I was beyond excited to take on the session!

Kelly asked that the session be a simple and laid back depiction of their family, showcasing the

natural relationship they had all fallen into with sweet Olivia Kate. I adore how this family has

come together to love on their newest little one, the sweet details of their family were such a

pleasure to capture. And can we talk about how gorgeous their home is? My inner design lover

was overjoyed at the sight of the blush pink nursery that was so carefully put together by doting

Mom and Dad.


This little girl will never be short on love, being the little sister of two loving and protective

brothers will certainly have its advantages later in life! You can see from their smiles that they

are smitten with their little sister and witnessing the bond they were creating was truly a blessing

to behold.

Lifestyle sessions are a chance for a photographer to tell the story of his/her clients. I always

strive to be as available as possible to help all of my clients. From wardrobe to final delivery of

precious images, I am here to make sure the session goes smoothly and provides the images

that most depict the individual client(s). One of my most asked questions is, “What do we

wear?” I always remind clients that complimenting outfits are the way to go! You don't want

everyone in one color or you'll lose the dimension that will make your images pop. I love how

these intimate sessions give me the chance to stretch my creativity and become a storyteller of

sorts. I know I have done my job when the photos I create tell a story on their own, evoking

emotion from a moment that is paused in time.

When it comes to posing in a lifestyle session, I like to stick to natural looking poses. I initially

help my clients get in a pose and then let them fall into it based on how it feels natural to them.

Whether that’s a simple hand adjustment or allowing them to snuggle in a little more, I have

found it gives the photos a sense of genuine emotion. I know my clients want photos that

accurately represent a certain time in their life and by allowing them to be themselves with

gentle adjustments, I can deliver to them the session they had envisioned.

My favorite image from this session has to be the look of surprise on Daddy and Olivia’s face as

they stare at each other. What a genuine and sweet moment to have for a lifetime! It was so

lovely to see just how spoiled Little Olivia Kate was, she is absolutely loved from her head to her

sweet little toes!

I am so pleased with how this session came together! I hope you enjoy a look into this beautiful

family welcoming their newest addition! I am certainly thankful to have been given the

opportunity to capture these moments for them
