Newborn Lifestyle Photography: Nyla James

This family moved to Fresno about a year after we did. Our husband’s work together and we have little boys about the same age. We immediately liked hanging out with this fun family and are so glad they’re here in Fresno! 

Sweet Nyla is a rainbow baby and she couldn’t have been a sweeter addition to their little family! As a Fresno Newborn Lifestyle Photographer, I love going into your home and capturing what your family looks like right when that new baby is brought up. All of the adjustments, all of the love, all of the excitement, those tiny fingers and toes, it’s all so important to capture and soak up! 

Nyla is also the first girl in the family and mom is having so much fun with all those sweet accessories! We had so many fun things to choose from for Nyla’s little outfits and I just loved what mom picked out!

Newborn Lifestyle photography is a little different than what you might typically imagine for newborn photography. I have a lifestyle approach which means I come into your home and capture what life looks like right now. I don’t bring a bean bag for baby to pose on and the only swaddle I bring is a clean white one. I take off my socks and shoes and pull on home rubber grip socks and have a tendency to climb onto your bed, ottoman and coffee table. Newborn Lifestyle photography is so meaningful to me because capturing what life really looks like right now is so important to me. I always capture the best parts of it, and work hard to tell the story of what life is really like right now. If you purchase a Signature Package, I also create a highlight video (check it out at the bottom of this post!) so you not only have photos but video to help you remember what life felt like when you brought home that new babe.

    Lifestyle sessions are so much fun! Especially when other siblings are around 🙂

  5. Lifestyle sessions are fun for older siblings. It’s just easier to snuggle and love up on your people in your own home. When I saw the belly button image, I couldn’t stop smiling… so many cute details you captured for this family

  6. So sweet, pure and full of love. Amazing images !
