Walker’s Newborn Studio Portraits

Lynchburg Newborn Photographer

When Casey reached out to me about taking her baby pictures she also mentioned she was a wedding planner… and I knew right away she probably had a discerning eye for good photography! I was nervous slash excited! When she moved forward with booking me it was such a compliment! This session with her precious baby boy was honestly a turning point for me in my newborn work last year. I loved capturing him in his natural sleeping positions, feet curled up on his belly and his head leaning on his shoulders. It all felt so uninterrupted and I fell in love with the organic baby approach so much more as I worked through this session.

I love the way he is resting so peacefully, posing himself in his single portraits. But I also love so much the photos of all three of them embracing one another and relaxing into their new normal of newbornisms and baby snuggles!

Casey is wearing a dress from the studio wardrobe and baby Walker is wrapped in various wraps from the studio stash. While I photographed baby Walker alone on the beanbag, mama used the extra time to put finishing touches on her hair and make-up. There was no rush or stress to get ready before she arrived and I designed the session format that way on purpose. I love to invite parents in to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet while I work with baby alone first, and then after about 45-60 minutes everyone comes together for full family photos. It is all designed to be a calm and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.

Here’s what Casey had to say about our time together:

Liz has captured my son's newborn images and we also did his first Santa experience with her! I'm never disappointed with the results. Not only are the pictures breathtaking, but Liz is a genuine soul. So rare! She makes you feel at home. If you have the opportunity to work with her, do so! You will not regret it!
