Lucia's Studio Newborn Session | Grove City Ohio Newborn Photographer

Lucia's Studio Newborn Session | Grove City Ohio Newborn Photographer

I photographed the Santiago family’s maternity photos in German Village. You can see their session here! I was so excited to see them again and meet baby Lucia! I loved that they chose pops of blue and white to match their maternity session outfits. Big brother Thomas was so excited during their time in my studio. He wanted to hold Lucia which is a big step as some siblings shy away from holding their new little brother or sister.

Little Lucia had the daintiest features and loved sticking her tongue out! She was a tiny peanut. She was most comfortable in her parent’s arms so we took some short breaks to rock and sway her back to sleep. She also loved to cluster feed which is totally normal during this stage and also during newborn sessions. Sometimes babies can get a little more stimulation than normal during a session and want to feed a little more. That is totally ok! I don’t rush newborn clients and never schedule another session the same day. I allow time in each session for feedings.

After the family portion of the session was complete, Matt took big brother Thomas to grab some lunch. I always suggest this with siblings in my studio during newborn sessions. Siblings can get antsy and hungry too. Although I do provide snacks and drinks I find things go a lot smoother if another parent takes the older siblings to lunch, or to a grandparent’s house. This gives me time to complete your baby’s photos while another spouse stays in the studio to watch and help as needed.

I loved working with the Santiago family for the third time and I can’t wait to see them again! Here are my favorite photos from their newborn session in my Grove City studio!
