It's no secret I love lifestyle sessions. Capturing a family in the place they love most brings the warmest, most genuine portraits. I always find lifestyle sessions seem to tell the full story - a snapshot at this moment in time. So when some of my best friends had a baby, I couldn't wait to worm my way into their home to capture all the sweetness. And let me tell you, Tessa's brought such sweetness.
Smith Family, we are all so beyond thrilled for you.
Tessa is such a perfect to your already rad little family.
I look forward to worming my way into your home for many more family sessions in the future. But for now, please enjoy some highlights. All the warmth you guys show, and all the details brought me to tears over and over while editing. We love you guys!!
A few little sneak's from Tessa's studio session
To add even more to the story, here are a few maternity portraits of Katie right before she had Tessa. It was so special to then take the newborn pictures in the same location.
And, side note, Katie's hydrangea is killin' it!!

As you probably know, I am a Victor NY newborn photographer who ADORES capturing baby sweetness all around the greater Rochester area. The toes, the curls, the cheeks, the squishy lips- I could forever gush about all the details! Let’s face it, half of my love of newborn photography comes from my absolute adoration of baby snuggles!
What many expecting parents may not realize is the amount of care, study, and precaution Lovebug Photography puts into ensuring baby’s comfort and safety throughout our session. I have spent countless hours researching, learning, and practicing the safest ways to pose and photograph your precious baby. As a mama myself, I view photographing newborn sessions as great honor for many reasons, and your trust in me is the top of that list!
One of the ways I have recently invested in providing the safest experience for you is attending a newborn workshop in NYC hosted by Blissful Baby Workshops. These experienced newborn photographers travel all around the country teaching posing safety and other skills related to creating a wonderful newborn photography experience.
Here’s a sneak at some of the images taken at the workshop. I hope you enjoy! I’m excited to continue to put what I've learned in place for all my future newborn sessions!

I know it’s entirely too cliché to say that I love my job. But there’s no simpler way to put it: I LOVE it. I love capturing families grow in size, whether welcoming first babies or fourth babies. I am immeasurably humbled when a family allows me the beautiful honor of continuing to capture their story. Watching kiddos that I’ve truly come to care about grow up in front of my lens is so thrillingly meaningful to me. Several months ago I began offering in-home lifestyle sessions, and they are rapidly becoming some of my favorite. While I, of course, love a good portrait session at a whimsical location, there is something so personal, intimate and cozy achieved when I am able to document a family in their home. I also love that as the years go by children will be able to see images of themselves in the place they love most. I know they will be simply treasured.
This precious newborn session is of sweet baby Blaire. Her mama and I went through our first pregnancies together and our sons were born within a month of each other. Wyatt has always been a cutie, but watching his pride as he held his baby sister completely melted me! I have been holding off on sharing this sweetness until the Seabury family could send out their (adorable!) Christmas card but I think it’s now officially safe to share! ;) From capturing Blaire in her beautiful nursery, to the surprise appearance from a Ford Model T, your session was so charmingly unique, and I was honored to have captured it. So much love to your beautiful family!!
