This sweet at-home newborn session in Richmond welcomed the arrival of tender little Charlie-James! This tiny girl has a familial name that was passed down by her great-grandfathers. Charlie is after her daddy Stephen’s grandpa, and James is after both of mommy’s grandpa’s! What a special name for a sweet little girl!
Mommy Kayla and Daddy Stephen are a god-fearing couple whose faith is at the center of all they do. All in all, they have been overjoyed with the arrival of their little girl. Besides spending their days positively soaking up all of her tiny smiles, giggles, and coos, Kayla and Stephen have been working on being more patient.
Having an at-home session is such an amazing option for families with newborns. You don’t have to worry about booking your shoot at a time that works best for your baby’s schedule and packing up “all the things” only to drive to a photography studio with a baby who is suddenly fussy or cranky.
Coming into your home allows me to capture your session in a way that is comfortable and relaxing for you and your baby. It also creates a more intimate experience because you are at ease and you can just sit back and relax in your newborn’s nursery! Or, really, any other corner of your home! And no, your home doesn’t have to be cleaned from top to bottom or have an “Instagram-worthy” corner. Basically, we can capture your newborn’s session in any corner of the house that you feel most at ease in. You’ll get to see how we pulled this off for Charlie-James’ shoot in the photos below!
The biggest piece of parenting advice that Kayla and Stephen would pass on to new parents?
“Learn to accept the help when needed, and don’t be afraid to ask either!”
