I’m Gillian! I’m a family photographer who is obsessed with capturing not just the major milestones, but all the in-between moments that make up your family life. Most of my clients stay with me from maternity sessions through to annual family photos, and I love getting to know each family and documenting the unique ways they grow and change over the years.
I had the wonderful opportunity to visit a family’s home in Aubrey, TX, and capture the arrival of their new baby, Scottie Joy! The newborn lifestyle session, shot in the comfort of their own home, was a beautiful blend of natural light, family bonding, and the excitement of a big brother welcoming his little sister. As soon as I stepped inside, I was met with a warm and joyful atmosphere. The house was bathed in natural light, which provided a perfect backdrop for the photoshoot. The session focused on capturing genuine interactions and connections within the family, rather than just posed portraits.
Big Brother was brimming with excitement as he eagerly awaited the opportunity to pose in front of the camera with his newborn sibling. As I captured their photographs, it became clear how much love and anticipation had surrounded the arrival of the new family member, creating a special bond between all of them.
One of the most memorable moments of the session was the genuine bonding captured between all the family members. While the baby ate, I got the chance to spend some quality time with the big brother. We played with race cars, talked about his favorite movies, and created a safe space for him to express his feelings and share his world. These candid interactions contributed to the authenticity of the session, highlighting the dynamics of a growing family.
As a photographer, I believe in creating a relaxed and comfortable environment for my clients during the photoshoot. This allows me to capture genuine emotions and document their story with authenticity. I arrived with all the necessary equipment including my camera, props, wraps, headbands, and bows. The color palette chosen for the session was clean and neutral, with whites, creams, and browns. This color palette kept the focus on the family and the subtle details, creating a timeless and classic look.
The baby’s room provided a charming setting for capturing some of the newborn’s first moments. The personalized touch added a layer of sentimentality to the images, creating a visual story that unfolded within the familiar and cherished spaces of the family’s home.
Overall, the in-home newborn lifestyle session was a celebration of family, love, and the joy that a new addition brings. The images captured during this session serve as a visual narrative, documenting the unique dynamics and connections within the family. The beauty of in-home sessions where the authentic moments are preserved, and the memories created will be cherished for years to come.
