Introducing Marshall: In-home newborn Session

Hello! I did a quick in home newborn family session for my dear friends after they welcomed their new baby, Marshall, to their family. This particular session is with a beautiful friend who has been there for me with meals and support with my two children. She had a perfect birth at Thrive Birth Center in Santa Rosa, and both of our preschoolers go to Spring Hill School together! This was just a quick session to capture some sweet moments of the family together. I love in-home newborn sessions; they capture the intimacy and comfort of the home. Also, mom and didn’t have to pack up two kids and all of their stuff! Mr. Marshall loved to spit up too… being at home allowed them to have everything within an arms reach for quick clean ups!

The happy family with new addition, Marshall.

Siblings have a special place in each others lives. Sure, they’ll drive each other crazy down the road, but look at that sweet smile she has – just for her new baby brother. I can’t believe Marshall gave me this huge smile at just a few days old! He is a very smiley guy now!

There’s something intrinsically special about capturing the family with their newborn during an in-home photo shoot.  Contact me to set up your newborn session here!
