Cozy Lifestyle Newborn Shoot in Healdsburg California

I had the pleasure of meeting this gorgeous mama at yoga this winter. When I heard that she was looking for a newborn photographer for her sweet new baby girl I jumped at the chance, and I am so excited about how these images turned out!

We decided on a lifestyle shoot with a few more posed images, so that we could have the best of both worlds. One of the biggest challenges with sibling shoots is keeping an older sibling entertained for the portion of the shoot where the new baby is the center of attention. Luckily for me, big sister was a fabulous little helper to have around, and she was just great with her little sister.

The best idea for this shoot came from dad. The family had baked cupcakes the night before the shoot, and dad invited big sister to come decorate the cupcakes while I took the individual newborn shots. What a great idea to keep big sis busy, and as a bonus, I got some fabulous pictures as they were finishing up! What a great session! Also, can I just add? Anyone who can bake *anything* with a newborn and young child at home is my own personal hero!
