Maia’s Lifestyle + Posed Newborn Session

Maia surprised her parents and gave them the shock of their lives when she was born early at 31 weeks. Her unexpected, premature arrival on November 5, 2022, lead to a stay in the NICU. She graduated and came home to her mom, dad, and big brother, Roman, on December 16! Documenting families as they grow their families is such an honor, and I am so thankful to have been a part of these moments.  Ready to go behind-the-scenes with me?! Good news, friend! Maia’s lifestyle and posed newborn session is featured this month inside the MMP

Family of four snuggling and having fun during their lifestyle newborn session in Chandler, Arizona. Big brother Roman loved having his lollipop handy.

Maia’s Newborn Session

This lifestyle and posed newborn session was full of the sweetest baby smiles, and a big brother who shared the spotlight and wanted to play in baby sister’s nursery!  Her brother, Roman, is the youngest sibling I’ve ever photographed during a newborn session. His young age made it tricky to get a photo of him and Maia together, but that’s okay! Their family photos, bonding with snuggles and reading books made for the sweetest memories. I know Maia and Roman will grow up being the best of friends!

Also, it was pretty cloudy the morning of the session so I was prepared to use my flash.  However, having the kids’ nursery on the second floor with two windows allowed for lots of natural light so I didn’t end up needed it.


Maia’s lifestyle and posed newborn session is featured this month inside the Membership for Motherhood Photographers. I am taking you behind-the-scenes for the entire 60 minute session!  See how I managed Roman, posed the family, and check out the workflow for her posed portraits.  Log in or join today to watch!

Members will get to see Maia’s entire gallery, but I wanted to share a few of my favorite images we captured with you here. Take a look!
