When I think of the ideal lifestyle newborn photography session, this is one I picture. Little Rhydian was born last winter into a colorful home with two active brothers. I was in love with the place as soon as I walked in. They live near a creek, with chickens. There were drawings taped to the walls and pictures on the fridge. There were colorful furniture items collected over time, each with a story. A basket étagère hanging by the kitchen window. Toy trains and handmade blankets. Color and texture and character all around.
And his family itself: they were relaxed and caring and funny, with the brothers running around barefooted and in costume, excited to show me their favorite toys and their brand new baby.
