Newborn Lifestyle Session | Alexandria Virginia

Lifestyle Newborn Session…

One of the many humbling benefits as a military spouse is the ability to live and travel all over the world. While we live in Alexandria, Virginia now – we used to live in Italy.  During that time our family formed an incredible bond with our children’s Italian teacher. Both kids attended a full immersion Italian school for three years. Their teacher, Maria Teresa, became our lifeline. She devoted her professional career to helping parents transition their children from an American acedemic curriculum to Italian. Anyway, we bonded. She became our family and we became hers. We’ve spent lots of time with her her parents, brother and her husband….and needless to say we celebrated many milestones together. When she became pregnant, she and Raffy shared the news with us right away…and then I started dreaming of photographing her session.

For this Newborn Lifestyle Session, this sweet family wore the perfect coordinating outfits. Sticking to basic, neutral colors and patterns really does make the biggest difference when taking your unposed lifestyle family photos. Harsh patterns or bright colors bring all the attention to the outfit, not you! I want YOU to be the center of attention. If you are looking for some GREAT options for your family photos, Zara and H&M have great options for everyone in the family! And you never HAVE to buy something new. I’m sure you have a beautiful outfit in your cloest ready to be used!

Newborns were my first love. I started when my second little one was a newbie and here we are! As parents, we don’t truly understand just how quickly these new little miracles change in the first couple of weeks. Capturing those tiny features we don’t even realize we will miss like that flakey skin, cowlicks, birthmarks, fuzzy ears, milk bumps, chunky fingers & toes, rolly thighs and all those firsts is so important to me. I want you to be able to look back at your baby and remember exactly how you felt seeing them for the first time and even their sweet baby smell. These are meant to be virtually stress free.

The images from the Newborn Lifestyle Session have been modified for viewing on smartphones because, because let’s be honest..it’s easy access! If you are viewing while on the computer, you will see the pics are a tad smaller…
