In Home Lifestyle Newborn Session | Fairhope AL Meeting Baby Mary Aline

Oh my goodness! This sweet baby girl and her momma are so sweet! I’m so honored I was able to capture their perfect in home lifestyle newborn session. I’ve known Baby Mary Aline’s mother for over 5 years now. We originally connected through her shoe boutique where I photographed darling shoes for her. Last year, she and her husband married – and since I had just had my own baby, I wasn’t able to photograph their beautiful day. Because of that, I was super determined that I would be photographing their newborn session!! Especially given everything going on, I’m so happy I was able to be there for this new family of three!

In Home Lifestyle Newborn Session

I love whenever I get to photograph newborn sessions! Babies are so fun to meet and seeing their little personalities makes my job even more interesting. Baby Mary Aline is named after her mother and grandmother, and she’s one of the sweetest newborns I’ve ever met. She is absolutely at peace when being held by her momma and daddy. And how cute are her little toes and fingers?! I forget sometimes how fast time really goes. Being able to document these early days for her family means a lot to me. Her parents designed a stunning, classic nursery. Lots of pinks and elegant personalized touches to celebrate their new baby girl. In fact, her momma handmade every bonnet that was in the room. Seriously, there’s nothing that woman can’t do! Being able to see all the love that went into her nursery made every detail even more meaningful.

Lifestyle Sessions with JSP

Like all of my in-home sessions, I let Baby Mary Aline dictate how things went. She snuggled with her parents, enjoyed a stretch in her crib, and even laid on the floor. I stopped when she needed a moment and just loved capturing the special moments between her and her loving parents. Her momma requested photographing Mary Aline in her going home gown (handmade by her!) and her grandmother’s gown. There’s nothing more special than knowing those photos are going to be treasured simply because of everything they represent! All of those little details shared from generation to generation should be documented. I love that this family passes pieces of clothing down between babies! How sweet!

I am so, so happy I was able to capture this newborn session. Meeting Mary Aline and being able to catch up with her momma means so much to me! Congratulations to this new family of three!!! I can’t wait to watch you on your parenting journey!!
