Hi.

Welcome to our life as we homeschool our kids with a twist!

Big Sister Kisses and Dancing with Dad | Highlands Ranch Lifestyle Newborn Photos

I'm so excited to write another post about this beautiful family from Highlands Ranch, Colorado.  (See their lifestyle maternity photos here.)  It was great going back so soon after meeting Rachel, Andy, and Elsa, for their maternity shoot.  We all knew what to expect and that helped us all just go with the flow. 

Sweet Elsa was the proud older sister and has transitioned herself into her new role with ease.  And little baby Lucy was a dream to photograph.

The image below is one of my favorites because it feels like a typical Saturday morning event and baby Lucy is along for the ride.

The "love" art in the photo below was a happy accident (along with their sweet dog, Isabelle, who was watching the action).  Dancing and jumping with dad was a time-filler and a moment I'm glad we captured!

Aside from the shots of just baby Lucy (like the one above), I do almost no posing during newborn photo shoots.  Andy naturally holds Lucy this way (below), and I made sure I snapped the shot when I had the chance.

I love making sure to capture a family's life even if the newest member of the family is napping or simply not in the frame.  Rachel and Andy (and especially Elsa!) will look back and love seeing the way they played together and that her parents had her undivided attention, when needed/wanted :)

This shot below is still one of my favorites--despite not being perfect, I think the imperfect-ness adds character to the shot.  Things move fast during lifestyle shoots and sometimes making sure you capture the moment is more important than everything being tack sharp!

I know this beautiful family will cherish these photos and they are happy they will have them forever.  Baby Lucy has already changed so much and life makes it hard to remember all of the details of those early days home from the hospital! 

Cheers!
