Welcome to the World Rosalyn

Ahh there is something so special about a newborn session with brand new parents.

The way they look all googlie-eyed at their precious baby and how they hold them with the most of care. It's a bit different than a session with seasoned parents and other siblings in the house. Everything is fresh and new and, without littles running around, the baby has 100% attention from mom and dad. All is calm. Unfortunately, this time is a blur and that is where I come in. To capture the first days that are so incredibly fleeting. Newborns are only so tiny and sleepy for a few weeks and then everything changes!  I highly encourage you to let the household chores go and, instead, spend the moments soaking in their fresh newborn smell and soft fuzzy skin. Simply enjoy babe as she sleeps in your arms. Trust me, the house is going to be forever messy going forward, but this stage of your child's life is the shortest! They will never be this itty bitty again!

It's not necessary for a baby to be asleep for my newborn sessions. I embrace the awake moments as baby meets momma.

I am always thankful for the incredible honor of capturing these moments for my families. I first met mom and dad when sweet Rosalyn was still in momma's belly. They were so excited to meet her and their Mt Falcon maternity session was gorgeous! And now I had the opportunity to photograph them again, this time in their home, as they welcomed their baby girl. We had such a lovely morning of snuggles and getting to know this sweet girl. Mom is just over the moon to have her home and in her arms. Although I must say, I have never had a baby poop so much in ONE session - this girl just kept going! LOL!

I thought the kitchen was neat and wanted to use it for some of the photos. Although it was a super cloudy day and there was not much light, I loved the moody feeling it created in these photos. It was very different from the bright and airy nursery and I love the variety it added to the gallery!

How cute is this little lace outfit? Of course it was peed and pooped on over and over - but we at least managed to get some adorable photos with her in it!

Welcoming Henry

Lifestyle newborn sessions are my favorite! I am passionate about capturing families in the comfort of their homes, surrounded by those that love them and things that are meaningful to them. I love how a house feels with a new baby and the relaxed environment it provides for portraits. They are the best type of sessions if you already have little ones and want to capture connection between the older kiddos with their new sibling. 

There is so much love in the Pearson home.  Many times when I photograph newborns in the home, I also have the opportunity to photograph the grandparents who are often visiting to help during the first few weeks. And as you may already know, grandparents are my favorite people. There is nothing more important to me than capturing connection between grandma and her grand babies so I was so happy to do that while I was there. 

Mom and Dad have put so much love into their home. The nursery and the kitchen were my favorite places to shoot. I love the mountain background in the nursery and the bright and airy kitchen. Both were such fun backdrops that added a personal touch to their portraits. I also like to ask my clients to buy some fresh flowers to add a bit of a color pop to the photos.  Allowing them to pick the flowers they love and shooting in their home allows for their session to be unique to them. 

Welcome to the world sweet Henry - I hope you are able to look back at these pictures and feel all the love!

Introducing Miss. Mirabelle

Mirabelle! Don't you just love the name? She is so sweet and loved by her big brother and sister. My goal with newborn session is to document your time together, cuddling with your precious new addition. I want to tell a story as you hold your new baby in your arms, sit close as a family and enjoy each others company. I want to capture your baby in things that are special to you and your family! Photos of baby snuggled in the blanket that grandma made, sleeping with the sweet toy Auntie gifted, or wearing the lovely outfit you handmade yourself. These are the memories I want to leave you with. 

Sheri is a stay at home momma to now three beautiful kiddos (Avi'ella, Westin and Mirabelle) and her husband Jonathan is a firefighter at the Cripple Creek fire dept! Sheri has impeccable taste and her home is decorated so beautifully in rustic - chic design, you can tell she carefully chose every piece in the home. She also dressed her family perfectly for a newborn session. Neutral and light color clothing really added the softness and a little bit of whimsy. 

Even with two littles under 4 and an infant, I sensed such a feeling of tranquility in their home. Dad read the kids stories while Sheri and I took some photos of her and Mira. He then took Westin to prepare lunch while Avi joined us for a few pics with her new sissy. She loves being a big sister and is so motherly with Mira. Then we brought brother in and dad for a few family photos. They are a calm and soft spoken family and you really feel the comfort they share with each other and how loved and welcomed Mirabelle is to their family. 

Mirabelle was born in her home and I feel like a lifestyle sessions was the perfect idea for them. I think this session really captures this season of their lives.  These photos are organic, and natural. They show the beauty of their home and all the love that is in it. I am thankful that they shared their home and time with me. Here are a few of my favorites from their newborn session.
