Preslee Joyner | Lifestyle Newborn Session

Each time I enter a home for a lifestyle newborn session, I know I am stepping into a very vulnerable place. Parents are tired, clutter is inevitable between bottles, diapers, and allllll the baby things. I immediately have the instinct to hug the mommas and tell them I understand—I know how exhausting and beautifully chaotic the newborn stage is. I've been there. But despite being in the trenches of new motherhood, Britnee was glowing—with love for her baby, and with the magic that bringing a life into the world creates in one's eyes.

We sat down and she told me all about her birth (one of my favorite parts of these sessions is hearing birth stories!) while baby Preslee rocked contentedly in her swing. Daddy was unable to attend the session, so I started brainstorming some mommy and baby shots that would feel natural and bring out Britnee and Preslee's beauty, while capturing precious moments. I have to say, I adore how this session turned out. Preslee definitely wasn't interested in sleeping for most of it, but that's alright because it allowed for some wonderful interaction! 

She's an absolute doll, Britnee and Nathan! Thank you for this honor!
