The Gibsons | Virginia Portrait and Wedding Photographer | Photography by Mariah

Where do I even start talking about my love for this session? When we had our son, I decided to try out some newborn photography. I had done some shoots with babies before, but never a straight newborn shoot. I fell in love with the silence of my own sleeping child in his crib (http://photographybymariah.com/featuring-jericho-in-his-room/), and then I decided that I wanted to give this whole newborn photography a go. I immediately knew that lifestyle photography was it for me. I wanted to document the raw emotion of a family in their own environment and the REAL story of their new experience using just natural light. While I have an extreme respect for studio photography, and I do plan to do some down the road, it honestly, for me, just cannot match the organic experience of a real life love story.
