The Bethea Family | Lifestyle Family Session


It was such a pleasure for me to have the opportunity to work with the Bethea family again for their newborn in-home lifestyle session.  We’d worked together twice before during my annual Fall Mini Sessions, so when we discussed possibly doing their next shoot in their home I was so excited!  First, it was an opportunity to meet their newest addition and I adore in-home sessions, especially when there are newborns involved.  Whenever a potential client inquires about newborn images I love to let them know how my lifestyle sessions work.  It’s not the traditional newborn shoot where the baby is asleep, wrapped in delicate fabrics and perched atop a bean bag or equally adorable prop.  My hat goes off to all newborn photographers that specialize in traditional photos like these because they are the real MVPs!  But for anyone looking to do something a bit more out of the box I’m excited to share with them the beauty of what a lifestyle session has to offer.  You’re in the comfort of your own home, where you’re familiar and relaxed and it can take place at any time of the year without having to disturb your little one by bringing them out in the humid heat or blistering cold.  So when I told mom, Kanika, about an in-home session I was so glad that she was on board!

It was so much fun catching up with Kanika and her husband Izell as well as seeing how much bigger little Tristan had gotten.  He was the doting big brother to the newest member of the Bethea family, Kendrick.  He was the picture perfect sleeping baby and I had a great time capturing their true family as it is.  I’m excited to watch them grow over the years and am so thankful that they chose me to capture this important moment in their lives.
