This family is close-knit and super adorable. Their son is a few months older than my son. It made me smile to see how many of their mannerisms are similar. After I spend time documenting the family, I told the parents that we needed to set up a playdate so that our sons can meet. They said it was a good idea. So we did meet up several times after that.

For lifestyle newborn sessions, the newborn baby is the boss. I always go with the flow based on what the baby wants. If we need a break to let the baby nurse or diaper change. We do. It makes for better pictures that way.
