I got in touch with Sheryl and Damien about doing a newborn photo session as an example of how documentary-style photography works for these types of photos. They were very kind to welcome me into their home and let me photograph what their lives look like with a 2-week-old baby and his 4-year-old big sister.

Before I came to do the session, Sheryl and I spoke about what their day to day lives look like as well as what their family loves to do together. We based their one-hour session around activities they do on a daily basis as well as a few things they love to do together.

I’ll let the photos tell you the rest of their story.
