Nathan’s Newborn Photos

February 5, 2018

Happy Monday, ya’ll! I have been meaning to share Nathan’s newborn photos for weeks now but #momlife happened. And now he’s almost 11 weeks old! How long is a newborn even considered a newborn? Asking for a friend…

Either way, I am in love with these photos that the super duper talented Erin from Waffles & Honey Photography took. She came to our house and captured Nathan’s sweet newborn goodness for us to treasure forever!

I also thought I’d share a few tips for making sure you’re prepared for your newborn session…

  1. Choose what everyone is going to wear BEFORE the baby is even born. Newborn photos are usually taken within the first 7-10 days of coming home from the hospital and you will be in too much of a fog to even feel like picking clothes out for the whole family.
  2. Remember that your post-pregnancy body will most likely not be the same as you’re pre-pregnancy body, so choose something that you’ll feel comfortable in. Flowy tops and leggings are always a good option.
  3. Decide which room(s) you’ll want the photos taken in (most likely the nursery and/or the master bedroom) and then clean it. And by clean it, I mean stage it by throwing everything you don’t want seen into a closet, cabinet, or under the bed. 🙂
  4. Try to plan for your baby to be hungry when the photographer gets to your house so that you can nurse/feed him or her at the beginning of the session. This way the baby will have a full tummy and likely sleep through the whole thing.

I am obsessed with the pictures of Olivia and Nathan together. It is so apparent how much she already loves her little brother.

    My beautiful Lauren,
    These pictures are breathtaking and gorgeous every one of them. You and Eric are truly blessed to have two beautiful healthy precious babies. You can see how much Olivia LOVES her little brother and how protective she will be of him. These are wonderful pictures to have of the first few days of baby Nathan. Thank you for giving us these perfect little bundles of joy. So thrilled to call them our grandbabies.
    We love you XOXO
