Lifestyle Newborn Photography with the Ori Family
I had taken the Ori family’s maternity photos back in November, so it was especially fun to see them again and meet their new baby girl during their lifestyle newborn photography session. Their older daughter was so sweet with her baby sister, wanting to give her kisses and hold her hand.
My own kids are 2 years apart and I remember my son being interested in his sister just like that. Always peering into her cradle to see what she was doing. They are 11 and almost 9 now, and it takes bribery to get them to hug for a photo now, so I really cherish the photos of them together when they were younger 😉
After this session was over, I asked them what their favorite part of the session was and they said, “Knowing we were taking time to document the current stage of life we are in.” Exactly! I did some light posing, but then I also just let them be themselves and got photos of what their every day life is like. I love that they get to look back on this and show their kids, because they probably won’t remember all of it.
She was trying to compare their feet sizes. So cute!
As soon as we told her we were going to cuddle on the bed, she hopped up and got inside the covers. 😉
The pacifier… 😍😆
The family said this is something their cat does a lot, and they were really excited that I was able to catch her on the railing like this, with their daughter yelling at her to get down 😆.
At the end, we went outside for a couple snow photos because their sweet little girl was born in the middle of one of our Portland snow storms, so it was fitting to get a photo out in the snow.
The last photo here was taken by placing my iPhone (without the case) up to the bottom of the lens and reflecting the trees back onto it.

For more info on booking your own in-home newborn lifestyle photography session with me, you can message me directly by going to my contact page, take a look at my pricing, or check out my portfolio for more examples of my newborn work. I’d love to help plan your session and create beautiful and authentic images of your growing family! Lots of blankets, headbands, hats, and clothing are available to borrow and I have plenty of tips on how to prepare your home. I have done an entire newborn session using only one room because it was the only place that got natural light, so you home doesn’t have to be perfect. We can make any space work, it’s more about your family and sweet new baby and the love you all have.
