This outdoor newborn lifestyle family session was an absolute blast to plan and photograph. Helping kids feel comfortable on picture day is a priority for me as a family and newborn lifestyle photographer. That’s why we chose Prescott Farm in Middletown, RI for our session location. Not only is the farm beautiful, but it was also one of the older kid’s favorite places to hang out! Having a favorite family location as the backdrop for picture day helped the kids feel at ease. By the end of our time together, they seemed to love being in front of the camera!
When the family arrived at Prescott Farm, I had the kids help me decorate the blanket. They loved arranging the holly, candy canes, and Christmas ornaments we used to give our family session some holiday flair. After a few photos of the whole family, we moved onto some sibling shots. I absolutely loved seeing how sweet the older siblings were with their baby sister! Capturing those special moments are one of my favorite things about being a newborn lifestyle photographer. Well, that and seeing all the cute little baby yawns and smiles. And maybe getting a baby snuggle or two.
One of my other favorite moments was watching dad comfort baby Teagan. She was a little sad after being unswaddled and needed some love. So daddy played her favorite song on his phone and danced with her. She calmed right down! It’s those sweet unscripted moments that make photographing a newborn family lifestyle session so special. Those little, in-between times are really where the magic happens.
Sukackas family, you were a joy to work with. I hope you enjoy your photos and your memories from this past weekend.
