I think lifestyle newborn sessions are very emotional and intimate. Most families want to have their newborn photographed, but they aren’t sure about including themselves in the pictures. I always suggest parents and siblings be included. Why? These newborn family pictures show the connection between the newborn and the family members. Also, these pictures are not only for you, but for your children. If you had this photo of you and your parents, you would want to see how you and your parents looked at the time and how much they loved you when you were born. Think about it as the legacy you are leaving behind <3
Both my husband and I are shy so we were apprehensive about having a family photo shoot…especially with how unpredictable a newborn can be. But Mai made us feel so comfortable right away and we ended up having a very relaxing and productive session together. The pictures turned out beautifully and very natural, which is just what we hoped she would capture. Mai strikes a balance of easygoingness and professionalism that is highly recommended.
