Raelyn is such a sweetie who was welcomed into this world by two wonderful parents and two fluffy brothers just recently. The Ridgeway family contacted me to do a newborn session, and I couldn’t have been more excited. This family is literally so warm, welcoming, and absolutely gorgeous (inside and out). Their home immediately felt inviting, so the session was super relaxed, and everyone seemed to be having a wonderful time. I love being able to capture those raw, beautiful moments that come so naturally in the comfort of one’s own home.
The Ridgeway family’s home was absolutely stunning. Raelyn’s momma is an architect for Cooper Johnson and Smith Tampa, and made their house into an amazing home filled with so many high end features. Raelyn’s nursery was thought down to about every little detail, and it was simply perfect for this new little girl. Not to mention, her mobile came all the way from Italy, made by LollyCloth .
We captured most of the photos in little miss Raelyn’s nursery.. Natural light can sometimes be hard to get while inside a home, so we had to time it just right to get the sun’s perfect glow on cute little Raelyn. One of my favorite parts of the session was when Raelyn’s two older brothers joined in, Hank and Hunk. These dogs are so sweet, and it was so fun watching them interact with the new baby. We decided to let them just act naturally with Raelyn, instead of trying to pose them. They came and went during the session and we got some great photos of the three together. I am so glad I was able to capture some of Raelyn’s first moments! The Ridgeway family is so blessed to have such a wonderful baby girl.
