Sweet baby Gunner was my first newborn session of 2021 and he absolutely did not disappoint! This lifestyle newborn session took place in his family's east Nashville home, mostly in Gunner's nursery which was full of lovely, natural light. We began our session in here while baby had a bit of fomo and didn't want to sleep. I like to follow baby's lead when working with newborns, so we took advantage of awake time to capture his beautiful eyes and some sweet snuggles in the rocking chair. By the time we moved into the master bedroom, Gunner drifted off to sleep which was perfect for some sweet family poses (and "unposes"). We ended in the master and included the rest of the family (his fur-siblings). So, so sweet!

Editing to add that this gorgeous session was proudly featured over on Nashville Baby Guide's blog!
