Cute newborn

Adorable Newborn |At Home Relaxed Newborn Photography Victoria BC

I have been photographing Robyn and Travis for as long as I have been a photographer. So I was thrilled when they announced a second boy to their family.

I love taking newborn pictures in the house. Mom and dad don’t need to go anywhere (and who wants to with a newborn), older siblings are more relaxed in their home setting and you can include pets! It’s a win/win. I also don’t pose newborns. I find nice light, set them on their back, side or tummy and wait for them to give me some magic 🙂


Toddler running through home

Big brother was super excited to have me there. So excited he ran around the house several times. Luckily the ottoman was there to put on the breaks.

I love the milk dripping out the sides.

Taking a break from running.

Big brother hugging newborn

After the running, he was good to have some pictures with baby brother. I think the key to toddler older siblings, is to get them excited to be in the photos. Set up something simple. Take the pictures quickly and then let them go on their way. Seriously. Trying to take endless posed pictures with a toddler is painful for everyone involved.

Newborn fight the power

Fight the power! I always seem to get photograph babies fighting the power. I’m not sure if that says something about the babies, or about me?! What do you think?
