Lifestyle Newborn session in Melbourne with the Rowe family

Mary Elisabeth and Jon have welcomed a sweet baby girl, and I got to photograph her at their lifestyle newborn session! Their home in Melbourne was the perfect place for me to meet Mary Rivers, the newest addition to their crew! Samuel was the perfect big brother (of course) but would much rather help me then hang out with his little sister!

Although I have an insane love for studio newborn photographers and how difficult it is to get those intricate setups and poses, I’d much rather join a new family in their own environment, spending time with the people they love and their new normal as a family! These lifestyle newborn sessions are my favorite for these fleeting moments in a family’s life!

That means playing with toddlers, laughing at Arthur (the dog) and wrangling a newborn all at the same time. It’s exactly the perfect mix of chaos and love, all bundled in to a cute little package!
