Garrett :: Massachusetts At-Home Newborn Photography

If you’re a new mama or had your second (or third or fourth) and feeling that exhaustion that comes with the newborn stage, I just want to tell you, you’re doing an amazing job. It is so hard and until you’re in the thick of it, you really don’t have an idea just how hard it is. You’re tired, you’re hormonal, you’re figuring out this new little person, a new routine, trying to stay hydrated and probably struggling with any number of newborn struggles, like feeding, sleeping, gas, fussiness.

You’re doing an amazing job.

I’ll tell you as often as I can, mama. These sweet little babies are miracles, but geez, it’s so hard. Things that we hoped would come naturally to us are maybe actually really difficult (ahem breastfeeding). Maybe you’re dealing with post-partum depression. Maybe you’re living off Poptarts and frozen pizzas.

It’s. All. Good.

Do what you need to do to take care of yourself and the baby. And if you need help or support, just ask. Allow others to wrap their caring arms around you.

You’re doing an amazing job.

Garrett’s Newborn Session

Garrett was born in early April and he was possibly the sleepiest baby I’ve ever worked with! He was awake when I arrived at the home, he ate, and boom - asleep! Through all the little changes and moving him around, he barely moved!

One of the benefits of doing newborn photos in the first two weeks is that they are at their sleepiest during this stage, but not every baby actually sleeps through their whole session! Every baby is different, and we make it work however we need to in order to get beautiful photos in your hands.

Here are some favorites from Garrett’s session!

One of my favorite things to do is get photos of families on their front steps. Often times, this is the first home, and makes a special keepsake to document the new family in front of the new home.
