I have to start by saying I was so excited for this newborn photo session!! I have been on a long string of photographing little girls so when I had a chance to finally take a little boys newborn photos, I was ready! And naturally, because we are all girl at the "Short House", it was fun excuse to go shopping for some new accessories to use!! I saw this blue seersucker sash at one of my favorite a local boutique in Mooresville, Sweet Grass, and they had this Mudpie sashon sale and couldn't help myself! ( also, you love Mudpie stuff check out mudpiemarket.com, great sales!!)
Upon arriving at the Stevenson house, I was greeted by the proud big broth, Sawyer, who was very interested in what types of props I had with me and helped me unpack several of them. We then walked into the living room where he helped me take a few photos and throughly enjoyed seeing the photos he took as well as seeing himself in the photos that we had taken thought out the time I was there. We then moved into the master bedroom where Elyse has just finished feeding Noah and he was the happiest, most content little guy! Seriously, I don’t think I heard him cry the whole time I was there.
Josh and Elyse, has a home full of natural light and light neutral wall colors that created the perfect atmosphere for some light and airy photos. They are also some of the most kind, laid back parents I have met for having a one week old and a toddler in the house.
Elyse decorated Noah’s nursery with the sweetest little accents and tasteful decorations that did not distract from the photos that were taken. It allowed us to really focus on them and their relationship with their new son in these photos.
We finished our sessions by going in the backyard under a shady tree to capture one more family photo. Sawyer was trouper by smiling and got a fun blue sucker at the end of it all!! It was such a pleasure meeting the Stevenson family and it was an honor to be able to the first to document their life as a family of 4!
