Clarksville Newborn Photographer | Newborn Portraits Are A Family Affair With Pictured Moments By April

“If I reserve a session with you, can I please include my son/daughter/children/toddler/family/in my newborn portraits?” – inquiring, expecting mom

It amazes me how often I am asked that question when a prospective client inquires with me for portraits.  The answer is YES!  Yes, yes YES!  I always encourage new moms to let me photograph them with their baby – I think it’s important!  How amazing would it be if you had a professional, timeless image of your mother holding you as a newborn baby?  I phrased it that way because I don’t have one of me as a newborn, and I don’t have one of me as a new mom with my newborn.  So if you have one or both, I envy you.

Bringing a newborn baby home is a milestone for your family that you won’t want to forget.  It will be priceless to be able to look back and see the way your other children embraced this tiny little bundle of BIG CHANGES, or the infamous new parents’ glow (just before the sleeplessness starts to show).  Siblings sometime struggle with the newfound attention on the baby, so including them in portraits often helps to make them feel special and included.  So yes – please inquire about including your children!

I felt it is only appropriate to share with you one of my favorite newborn portrait sessions, complete with some sweet sisterly love and an adoring family portrait.  These girls stole my heart – I hope they touch yours too!

There were so many more gorgeous images from this session, but I had to narrow it down to my favorites.  Did you happen to notice the picture with a cowboy hat and boots arranged next to a little hand-made wooden bed?  Well, that was a special tribute to a Grandfather that didn’t get to meet his grand baby before he passed away.

Family is important.  I am honored to include yours.
