New Baby | Jacksonville lifestyle newborn photographer

This gorgeous baby girl is just five days old in these pictures. Although I no longer offer studio-style newborn photography, I occasionally do lifestyle newborn photography. For lifestyle photography, we make use of your home as a backdrop for a natural look that reflects this special time in your life. Weather permitting, we also do a few outdoor portraits.

This little baby is lucky to join such a warm and loving family. I’ve worked with this family for a number of years, and it was a pleasure to meet their newest addition.


Baby at 5 weeks | Jacksonville newborn photographer

I’ve photographed this warm family several times now, and it was a pleasure to photograph their newest addition. Little V is absolutely charming here at five weeks. She was wide awake most of the session: alert and curious about the world around her. She couldn’t resist falling asleep for a few pictures near the end of the session (so we got both awake and sleepy portraits). S family, congrats on your beautiful new baby!

I love these quiet moments of mom with new baby.

It was on the cool side that morning (so she stayed all dressed), and little V was perfectly content to hang out in the basket daydreaming.

It’s easy to see he’s going to be a great big brother!

Look at those precious baby cheeks.

She made all kinds of cute expressions.

The whole family.

6 days new | Jacksonville newborn photographer

This newborn is less than a week old here and is adorable with those plump baby cheeks. The weather was on the cool side, but we managed to get a couple quick outdoor pictures. He was a little angel, and toward the end of the session, woke up for some great eye contact.

One of the great things about Florida is that we sometimes get weather in the winter just warm enough to do a few newborn pictures outside. We had to work quickly, but I love the warm brown tones here.

Newborns love to smile as soon as I set down the camera for a moment, but I caught this gorgeous smile just in time.

Look at those sweet eyes.

Baby Girl | Jacksonville newborn photographer

This beautiful newborn slept so well for her portraits. She did a fantastic job for her first photo session and it was easy to see how smitten her parents are.

Her mom had this lovely bracelet and necklace for her newborn daughter.

Little I’s grandmother is staying to help for a few months.

The proud parents.

Sweet baby girl | Jacksonville newborn photographer

This beautiful little newborn slept so sweetly and also also gave us some alert images at the end of the session.

Look at those gorgeous baby cheeks. Her mother had this outfit handy to match the nursery, and the colors also go so perfectly with little M.

The whole family, including the fur baby.

The dog and baby weren’t quite sure they were ready for their close-up together, but I was very happy to snag this one. Aren’t they cute?
