I recently had the honor of meeting sweet little Edison Lee for his in-home lifestyle newborn session. I should note that the term ‘little’ is being used here in reference to his age, as Edison entered the world via a serene home birth at an impressive 10+lbs of pure joy. (Yes, his mama is basically superhero status!) I loved getting to meet the handsome hunk, hearing about his birth story, (this is ALWAYS my favorite part of newborn sessions, so you can expect me to ask!) and watching little Frankie adjust to his recent promotion of big brother!
Doctors Frank and Brittany Koch are the owners of Litchfield Chiropractic Center, located in central Minnesota, and have renovated the upstairs of their business as their personal home. It has so many historic features and quite honestly, it is a photographer’s dream to shoot in- think exposed brick, neutral walls, and skylights that let in beautiful natural light!
Every newborn session is unique but when I arrived, Edison was finishing up with a feeding and drifted off to sleep pretty much right away so I did his traditional newborn portraits first. The photo of Edison smiling was the first click of my camera for the day – we totally lucked out! Edison actually decided to get cozy and slept throughout his entire portrait session which almost never happens! As he finally started waking a bit, we transitioned into the lifestyle part of the session which is where we include mom, dad, and siblings, The focus for this part of the session is more on interacting with your new little one and always results in some of my favorite images!
Congratulations Dr. Frank and Dr. Brittany on Mr. Edison and your growing family! He is absolutely perfect and Frankie is going to make a great big brother!
