A FUN Newborn Session | Seattle Newborn Photographer

Let’s face it–having a Seattle newborn photographer take photos in your own home sounds a bit nerve wracking, right?  You worry about the kids, the dog, whether the baby will be crying the whole time, and you worry about what you should wear.

I’m here to tell you that it’s OK.  Relax, and enjoy the moment.  I’m just a nearly silent observer, allowing your family to go about their usual routine, with just a few small nudges toward the light.

It’s ok to jump off the furniture, just this once!  (Ok, only if Mom says yes. )

 

The Landrus Family | Seattle Maternity Photographer

As a Seattle maternity photographer, I get to meet so many beautiful people.  Melissa invited me into their lovely vintage-styled home to help photograph their final days as a Family of 3.

Miss Hadley, aka Big Sister, had the biggest smile, an infectious laugh, and a mighty desire to move move move–as every nearly-2 year old should.  Toddlers are the absolute best part of this job.  I need more of Hadley in my life.  This job, as a family photographer in Seattle, is made sweeter for getting to meet little people like her!

During any lifestyle photography session, the goal is to tell the story of a real family in their real home.  That means games with the kids, reading books, show and tell, and even snack time!  There’s no pressure to act a certain way, or stand still and say “cheese.”  Silly, energetic children can let their REAL smiles shine when the cameras are brought to them!

The vintage decor, and light shining through the windows made this session and photos simply effortless.  I’m considering hiring Melissa to come personally decorate my own home.

Melissa and Hadley’s adventures and vintage charm can be followed on Instagram @MelissaLandrus and her Blog

Stay tuned for more photos of this family of FOUR once I’ve met their new addition for newborn photos!
