Lifestyle Newborn Photography | Waylon Matthew

I’m thrilled to share this sweet in home lifestyle newborn photography session today! Documenting your little one in your own home is incredibly special. Being able to look back on images of their nursery and remembering how life felt in those early weeks is truly a gift. I know what you’re thinking and no you do not need to have a model home in order to have beautiful images in your home! The home you have with its perfect imperfections will photograph beautifully and the images will hold so much meaning for your family.

Waylon Matthew was born on May 26th, 2023 at 3:30pm. He weighed 7lbs 8oz and was 21.25 inches long! I am often asked when to schedule your newborn session. When it comes to lifestyle newborn photography, baby can be a bit older. Anywhere from 7 days to one month old is perfect for lifestyle newborn sessions! Waylon was one month old at the time of his session. Sometimes delivery and recovery can be difficult. Taking time to recover and adjust before your session is perfectly fine!

Brooklyn received hair and makeup from Alyson of Something Blue Stylists prior to her session. Having the girls from Something Blue come to get you ready before your session is an absolute dream! While Alyson worked Brooklyn was able to relax in the comfort of her own home.
