I had the joy of capturing this beautiful family before and after they welcomed their 6th family member earlier this year.
For the maternity session, we took a short walk along Eastern Hill during sunset and got some great photos of this active, outdoorsy family. This is such a gorgeous part of Albury-Wodonga. Favoured by many locals and their dogs for their morning and evening walks - and the views for both sunrise and sunset are just gorgeous, as the path meanders along the ridge looking both to the east and west.
Then I was fortunate enough to be welcomed into their home after his arrival earthside, to document him, his siblings and parents in a relaxed home environment.
The benefit of in-home newborn sessions are many. The family is generally so much more relaxed in their home, the kids don't have to stay close when they're not having their turn in front of the camera and there is no expectation for the baby to be asleep or awake. Lifestyle newborn photography captures this moment in time, in a more natural way. You don't have to lug baby, other kids (if you've got more) and everything that comes with a baby to a location or studio in everyone's best clothes and hope they don't get them dirty along the way. And these photos can be taken any time within the baby's first few months.
I aim to catch this moment, as you remember (or not, depending on your level of exhaustion!!), in your home, where these memories are made.
