A few weeks ago I got to meet this sweet family at their gorgeous East Nashville Home. Baby Owen was so amazing and relaxed for his session and I had a great time getting to know his parents. Mom Emily is a pediatric dentist and she graciously put up with my many questions since my own crew was a few days away from their first checkup. It was so awesome to photograph these beautiful spaces and I hope to see this family again soon!

I was so excited when Katie contacted me abut a newborn session for her baby daughter. She is an extremely talented calligrapher and runs Bunny and Bear Paper, and it just so happens that she is the creator of my lovely logo! She also designed a stunning tattoo that lives on my husband’s shoulder forever, so to say I admire her talent is an understatement.

It was no surprise that when I arrived at their apartment that it was so thoughtfully styled and wonderfully decorated. I am so lucky to get to photograph gorgeous spaces like their’s! These are just a few of my favorites from their session. Hallie is such a beautiful baby and I hope to get to photograph her again soon!

 

2016 was a pretty amazing year for me when it comes to lifestyle film newborn photography sessions. I love love love these sessions and I’ve been so fortunate to be able to shoot such amazing families and houses. Coincidentally, three of my favorites for the year were all of baby boys named Henry! This sweet baby Henry came a little bit earlier than anticipated and was such a sweet little squish.

Paige (Henry’s mom) and I had discussed her visions for the session in the months prior to his arrival, and I was completely in awe of their Clarksville, TN home when I arrived. The decor was so beautiful and every room was spotless, which Paige tells me was all thanks to grandma who stayed to help them during Henry’s first days. The best surprise was when I walked in to Henry’s nursery. WOW. Seriously, one of the most gorgeous spaces I have ever seen. It was so clear that Paige put so much time and thought into every detail of the room and it was so serene and calming. Even the book on Henry’s shelf ‘Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile’ had significance as it is an homage to their last name.

I have said it so many times before, but I really do love photographing lifestyle film newborn sessions at my client’s homes. Newborn sessions take a while, and babies this young usually eat somewhat constantly and need frequent breaks. Everyone is still healing, and it is so much nicer for mom and dad not to have to pack everything up and try to be somewhere on time. Plus you get to include your environment, which is so much a part of the memories of your first days together as a family.

I had a wonderful time photographing this session and I hope to see this family again soon!

This at-home photo session of the Ward family took place in their Murfreesboro, TN home. Mom Autumn had a great vision for how she wanted her portraits to look, and she even painted her bedroom white while 8 months pregnant (!) because she loves a light and bright look. Baby Henry came a bit sooner than planned, but was thankfully perfectly healthy and precious as can be.

I LOVE doing newborn sessions at clients homes. It is so much more relaxing for everyone, especially since newborn sessions can be a bit time consuming. This family also has a toddler, and it was great for big brother to come and go as he pleased and hop in photos when he felt like it. When he got tired he could wander into the kitchen for a snack and we just easily shifted gears into photos with mom and dad or baby alone.

From Autumn:

“Leanne came into our home, put us all at ease and was so gracious with us being a little out of sorts due to the recent arrival of our second son— we had been home less than a week when we had her capture our family. We are so so so pleased with our family & newborn session. Thank you Leanne!”

Looking for a newborn photographer? Contact me here and let’s talk about taking some stunning photos of your precious bundle!

Where do I even begin with this session? Basically, it was a dream.

Newborns have a very, very special place in my heart. Lifestyle sessions are also some of my favorites, so this session was just the BEST.

As if a precious newborn lifestyle session wasn’t enough to make me go bananas, mom Kim is STUNNING. So, so gorgeous. I seriously could not take a bad photo of her, AND she is so incredibly nice. She made me lunch while I was in their home and was so helpful. Kim is also a local photographer so I was honored to take these photos for her!

We started outdoors since the light was so soft and beautiful that morning. Then, went in for some lifestyle shots and solo images of baby Henry. This session was right around 4 hours long, which many people don’t realize is pretty typical for newborn sessions. I like to really take my time, make sure there are plenty of breaks for feedings – which Baby Henry definitely needed. He ate about every 30 minutes to an hour (poor mama!).

Kim rented an AMAZING dress from Rent the Runway, and after the lifestyle portion of the session was finished, she was able to change back into comfy clothes and kick back and relax.

I adore these kinds of sessions and I hope there are many, many more like it to come!

Sweet little Dalton is my newest nephew. He was the most relaxed newborn I’ve ever seen, he preferred to just let his legs stretch straight out and chill, and I don’t recall hearing him cry at all! We did this entire session at his home in Georgia – another peaceful in-home session. 🙂

As a mama who has had a few rough c-sections myself, I knew exactly what Elissa wanted when she said she wasn’t ready for photos of herself yet and that she really just wanted to capture Jackson by himself and with his sister while he was still this small.

We did this session in their apartment while everyone stayed comfy and away from germs, it was so relaxing!!!

This session was also featured on Little Bellows here, which I am super pumped about!

When Lauren contacted me about doing an in-home lifestyle newborn session for baby Jack I was super excited. Usually I have to convince people to let me shoot in their homes! Well, let me tell you, it is no wonder because their home is STUNNING and magazine-worthy AND her husband James built it!

I also loved that when I pulled up everyone in the family was ready and willing to have their photos taken. I love when newborn sessions include everyone!!! I can’t wait for this cutie’s 6 month session 🙂

Charlotte was the sweetest little peanut. She was two months old at our session and sweet as can be. Thanks Jessica and Ben for letting me cuddle her!!!
