I absolutely loved capturing this sweet little man and his big sister and parents in their ADORABLE Berkley home. It was so cute and full of character that I had to snap a photo. Plus, how cool will it be one day for Nolan to look back and see the home he first came home to?!

One thing I love so much about being a newborn lifestyle photographer is all these sweet details. It’s just the best! I had the honor of shooting maternity photos for this adorable family as well – truly love getting to know my clients!

Here are a few favorites from my time with Nolan and crew.facebook1facebook4facebook7facebook15facebook20facebook21facebook25facebook27facebook28facebook30facebook32facebook37facebook38facebook59facebook64facebook69facebook72facebook73facebook79facebook81facebook88facebook93


As a newborn photographer, it is so special to me when clients welcome me into their homes to capture this new little life that is about to change their world. It’s such a magical (ok and let’s be honest, exhausting) time. I made the switch from posed studio newborns to lifestyle newborn photography about two years ago and I have enjoyed the change so much. Both styles are such art but I am really enjoying capturing newborns in their own home. The home where they will most likely take their first steps in and say their first words.

I feel like when Henry’s parents look back at these photos 20 years from now – they will cherish them even more then they do now – because it will take them back to those very moments when Henry was brand new. The house they brought Henry home to. The nursery where momma nursed her baby and the rocking chair dad rocked his little guy to sleep. It’s what drew me to lifestyle newborn photography. I want Brandon & Jenny to look at these images and instantly remember life with Henry as a baby.

My goal as a newborn photographer is for my clients to never forget life as it once was….for my photographs to freeze time for them…so when time has passed and life has gone on and their once tiny Henry is now headed off to kindergarten…high school…college…they can look back and almost put themselves in these moments.

As a mom of five I know just how quickly time goes by. I can remember the day my oldest was born as if it were yesterday – and yet he will be nine next month. Even during the months and years of sleep deprivation that comes along with having babies and sometimes make the days feel all so long, it really goes by too quickly.

So while this post is long overdue (blogging has totally been on the back burner for me this past year – but hey it’s a new year people, new resolutions right?:)) I want to say thank you to Brandon & Jenny for welcoming me into their gorgeous home to capture this sweet time. Soak it all in. facebook4facebook6facebook7facebook11facebook16facebook24facebook28facebook35facebook37facebook38facebook45facebook46facebook48facebook50facebook53facebook59facebook61facebook62facebook63


What a joy it is for me to capture new parents and their brand new baby. It makes me smile from ear to ear! I absolutely love being a lifestyle newborn photographer and traveling to my clients homes to capture these real life moments that they will treasure for years to come. Thank you Bushkuhl family!
