When I talked to my good friend Emily Wenzel (the owner and photographer behind Emily Wenzel Photography) about taking newborn pictures of our sweet new baby, she made it very clear that she does NOT do “baby in a basket” shoots. Instead, her goal is to photograph the real, unposed moments. We started brainstorming and feverishly pinning ideas for a family lifestyle shoot, and I am so happy with how it came out! I really wanted to capture what our life was like as a new family of 4 (minus the piles of dishes in the sink and the crazy amounts of laundry). I think Emily did an amazing job of capturing the best parts of our life right now: newborn snuggles, a goofy toddler who adores her baby sister, and the love of our family.
