Session Share: Lifestyle Newborn Session, from Photographer Krystle Ricci

Inspiration: New parents in their own home, with baby (and fur baby!).

Favorite Element: Max’s grandfather painted antique family heirlooms for the nursery; the room was filled with light and had such a calming feeling — I felt it as soon as I stepped inside.

Biggest Challenge: The family pooch, Daisy, is a senior. She is deaf, and sometimes seemed to forget I was an invited guest, and started to bark if she thought I was getting a little too close to the baby.

Final Thoughts: I love lifestyle newborn sessions; I feel they won’t ‘date’ because the place to which you first bring your baby home will always be special, and the ability to look back and relive those moments is so precious. I wish I had done a session like this with my own children.

  • Golden Hour: A Family Session at the Beach
    The inspiration for this photo session was to capture my two favorite things: children and the beach. And not any beach … Redondo Beach, California.

  • A Joyful, Refreshing Family Session
    1. Inspiration My newborn session style is soft and airy, and I would love my outdoor family sessions to match them. I always advise my clients to wear light, monochromatic, neutral colors to coordinate the color palette of the whole family, because they look best in the field. This family looked perfect from head to […]
  • The Art of Photographing Older Children
    1. Inspiration I truly believe that so many have portraits taken when their kids are young. It feels natural to have them done every 6 months or so. They are changing so much when they are little. As children get older, they don’t seem as though they are changing as much, but they still are. […]
