Baby Boy Newborn Session in Knoxville | Ayden

We’ve documented many different parts of Ayden’s life already, even though he’s only 2 weeks old! We began with the pregnancy announcement, then did a maternity session. Right after he was born we did a Fresh 48 session and now we have this baby boy newborn session!

Ayden is so adorable! He didn’t want to miss out on anything and was awake during most of the session, but he was happy and that gave us a chance to see his eyes!

We started the session with Ayden laying in his crib. Isn’t his bedding so cute!

Ayden started getting a little fussy, so his mommy picked him up and rocked him for a few minutes. These quiet moments of just mom and baby are some of my favorites during lifestyle newborn sessions.

Ayden was ready to eat, so Jessica nursed him. Once he was nice and calm, big sister Addy came in and we got some adorable sibling photos! She is so excited to be a big sister.

Then Addy hopped up in the glider so that she could hold her new baby brother.

Then we had daddy come in and hold his new baby boy. I always love seeing the tenderness fathers have when holding newborns, and they almost always do something goofy with them too!

After that we did some family photos with everyone sitting in the floor of the nursery. Brad was being silly, so everyone joined in!

Then I moved in closer to get some details, like Addy kissing Ayden on the head.

Addy made it clear that she needed a break from photos, so she went to play while we did some pictures of mommy, daddy and baby Ayden. You can see how much they adore him.

After this we moved into the living room. They were all able to relax together and I just documented the moments as they happened.

I love capturing the way that newborn babies move. Everything they do is just so cute! I especially love their big yawns and dramatic stretches.

This baby boy newborn session was wonderful. Ayden was so content most of the time. He really is a little bundle of joy, you can just see how much joy he brings his family by the way they look at him.

Lifestyle Newborn Sessions are one of our favorite things to photograph! A fresh, cuddly little baby in his natural space that he’s used to is the best place to photograph them. It’s also easier on the family to not have to leave the house.
