I don’t like to play “favorites” when it comes to my photo sessions (because I really do love them all), but as a lifestyle newborn photographer, sometimes I find myself admiring some sessions long after I photographed them.

One of my favorite parts of a photo session is helping you plan your outfits. I’ve put together a few inspiration boards to hopefully help make planning what to wear for Fall family photos less stressful for you. It’s probably no surprise that I’m a lover of neutrals.

This new season of life is equally as (if not more) important and exciting as your wedding day.

At risk of dating myself, I remember the time before everything went digital. Specifically, the photos we took.
