A child’s love could simply be one of the most beautiful sounds in the world. – Unknown

Capturing  the first images of a new family is such a beautiful experience and Kathleen of Hope + Salt Photography captured the true beauty of newness in this city newborn session.

Kathleen: I loved their home. They live in a downtown highrise and it was beautifully decorated and got the most amazing morning light. This sweet family of three welcomed me into their Burlington home to photograph their two week old son, Max. When I arrived he was completely asleep so I started with photos of just him, capturing him swaddled up nice and cozy and all his little details with my macro lens. I kept commenting on how beautiful their home is. Max’s mama sure knows how to decorate. So classy, simple and gorgeous. Their master, nursery and living room all had big bright windows so we were able to use each of these rooms for our lifestyle photos. He gave me lots of stretches and adorable expressions when he woke. Once he was awake he preferred to be held close to his mom and dad so we captured lots of images of both of them cuddling their son.

Lisa and Rachel: We always love an in home newborn session. We particularly love the uniqueness  of this session with the downtown high rise and the city in the background.  Kathleen really captured the warmth of this new family in their beautifully decorated home.  The setting providing an urban feel that we are totally vibing on!  Thank you for sharing this beautiful family and newborn session with us, Kathleen.
