A few days after we brought our daughter Odette home from the hospital we had a newborn lifestyle photo session in our home. We wanted to capture those first couple weeks as well as capture how little she was and get photos of us as a family!
My daughter Odette Sabine was born June 15th at 4:51pm! Shortly after I did newborn portraits in my studio with lots of help from my husband. Being the parent and photographer was a different challenge and I was still very much in recovery mode. I planned the shoot out a lot before delivery so I had already planned the styling and props. Went with neutral backdrops and petite and sweet headbands!
To prepare for our daughter’s arrival we wanted to put together a beautiful nursery we’d enjoy spending time in with our new little one. We spent a few months working on it but it was worth all the effort! We decided on a stars and moon theme with blush, navy, gray, white, gold, and silver as the color palette.
The excitement and fun around our first pregnancy continues! My husband and I decided to find out the gender of our little one on the way. We felt if our doctors knew, we wanted to know too! We felt it would be just as much of a surprise finding out at our ultrasound as it would be finding out after delivery. Plus, I am the planning type and wanted to be able to decorate the nursery exactly as I wanted knowing if we had a girl or boy on the way. Finding out gave us the chance to throw a gender reveal party to share the news with close family and friends! And of course I snapped some photos along the way.
