Needham MA Lifestyle Newborn Portraits with MA Newborn Photographer

I was so excited to work with this sweet family! They reached out to me because they’re friends of another family I’ve worked with – who is having their baby next week. So many babies are being born, it makes my heart happy! I loved meeting these 6. They’re so much fun and they’re all over the moon for their new baby to be in the world with them. We planned relaxed Needham MA lifestyle newborn portraits at home. It was absolutely perfect.

Needham MA Lifestyle Newborn Portraits

The first thing I noticed about this beautiful family is how much love is in this home. While our focus was definitely the new baby girl, I absolutely adored watching her older siblings play with their parents and each other. The house is just overflowing with love. Our session took place in their gorgeous living room. They had the best windows for tons of light! Their new little girl wanted lots of snuggles and needed to take a few breaks, which is totally fine with me. It gave me time to capture some of the other relationships in the house.

Some of my favorite images from this session are definitely of their oldest children loving on the new baby. Her biggest sister is completely in love with the new baby – and you can just tell! It’s super sweet. They also asked to include their fur baby, who was adorable too. This was another session that tugged on my heart strings, so soon after losing my own dog. But, I’m glad that I could capture this family’s story. Thank you to this sweet family for trusting me with your newest member! I’m so happy for you all.
