Pittsburgh Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session

Being a Lifestyle Newborn Photographer in the Pittsburgh area is always a joy. Getting to meet all of the new babies and parents is truly one of the best parts of being a newborn photographer. One of the cool things about lifestyle newborn photography is photographing newborn babies in my client's home. I love the challenge of finding and using light in different ways - because every home is unique. And I loved the D Family's home! So much great light in different areas of their house.

When I was communicating with this beautiful mama before she gave birth, she asked if an outdoor newborn session would be better because her house was dark and may not have enough light. I responded that we can absolutely do an outside newborn session, but not necessary. I further stated that I only need one window for lighting. And honestly, it's true - I've photographed newborns in smaller, darker houses - we live in Pittsburgh! The majority of the houses in the area have a closed floor plan, lots of dark wood, and not great light - it's totally fine! I can adjust the settings in my camera so that the lighting will be correct for your newborn session. But when I arrived at the D Family's home, I was pleasantly surprised. There were so many cool areas in the house! So much great light - I absolutely loved photographing this lifestyle newborn session. As you can see - we did NOT have to use just one window for the whole session, there was plenty of good light in the D Family's home!

Miss Makenna was so calm for the majority of her session. She slept almost the whole time, and only started to get a little fussy near the end. Who can blame her - she's a newborn! I don't expect anything from her. All I expect from my newborn clients is to love on the newest member of their family. There's always tons of hugs, kisses, and snuggles in lifestyle newborn sessions. It's the best.

It's so important to preserve life's fleeting moments through beautiful photographs!
