Anchorage Home Newborn Session | Anchorage, Alaska | Moss and Myrrh Photography
Ah, newborns. I'm loving the direction these sessions keep going. If you're wanting to completely hole away after having your baby, this is the session for you. You never have to leave your home. In fact, you don't even have to leave your couch if you don't want to (though I suggest we migrate at least to the bed to get more options, haha!). You literally just hang out in your house connecting with your family and loving on your brand new baby. What's better than that?! Nothing, absolutely nothing.
For this family I wanted to make sure that I really included the big brothers, even though one of them really didn't show much interest in being involved at first. The beauty of documentary sessions is that NO ONE is forced to participate if they don't want to. No one is forcing you to fake smile at a camera. When older siblings randomly decide to connect with parents or baby, that's when I get the shots I want, but I also really want to document each individual personality. If that personality is NOT wanting to be cuddled up to mom + baby, that's totally okay with me. I think in most sessions, siblings get lost in the waves of newborn attention. I used to think that was totally okay, but now not so much. For my work, I think it's really important to document siblings..A LOT. Children need to see themselves in photographs and this is a very emotional time for them (not all) with now having to share the attention with one more person. I want them to feel important too.
