Capturing your Joy… Before and after birth
Lovin’ the Light is a full service, boutique studio on the NW side of Gainesville, FL. Linda Bainter is the owner and photographer at Lovin’ the Light and has specialized in documenting your joy before and after the birth of your baby. Capturing children and families up to the first year.
The love you feel for each other and your growing baby within, is beautifully captured in maternity sessions. Outdoor and in studio sessions are available along with a maternity wardrobe of gorgeous gowns that will flatter your ever changing baby bump. Helping you to capture your connection with each other and the elegance of this moment is Linda’s desire.
Capturing your newborn baby in the hospital within the first 24 – 48 hours is called a Fresh 48 session. These firsts, from their first bath, their first meeting with siblings and grandparents, to being held by the family and friends you invite into the delivery room are moments that you will treasure. So quickly your baby will change and her flaky skin, hospital bracelets and wrinkly newborn appearance will be gone, your images will take you back to her delivery day and that tiny face you will always want to remember.
Linda is honored to have been recognized as one of Gainesville FL best Newborn Photographers in 2017 and 2018 by Expertise.com. She enjoys meeting families at their beginning and is blessed to see and capture the love they have for each other and their brand new baby. Her style of natural textured layers in soft pastel and neutral colors allows your baby to be the focus of every image. Her patience and training with newborns allows your session to focus on your little ones comfort, so you are never rushed while capturing beautiful images of your baby. She values the trust families place in her to preserve their memories in fresh yet timeless images, that will become treasured art for your home.
When a family leaves a review of their experience at their newborn session, complimenting Linda’s patience, attention to detail and how she gently posed their newborn, it is what makes her work a joy.
Your baby will go through so many changes in their first year! They go from the sleepy curled totally dependent newborn, to a bright eyed, gurgling 6 month old, to an upright cruiser, that is so pleased with her ability to stand. Bravo for being the one who holds her hand through the fast and furious first year!
Those position changes from lying, to sitting, and finally standing are the perfect milestones to document in your babies first year. Every baby is unique and rather than schedule a session based on age, we love to capture the changes as follows: We love to capture your baby for their newborn session, close to the 10th day, while still womblike and curled. The 6 month sitter session is captured when she can hold a sitting position for at least a minute on her own and this could be from 5-7 months of age. The standing first year session, happens from 9-13 month of age, when your baby is cruising around items while holding on, this is the final milestone captured in our first year plan.
From the moment your feel new life within to the day when you hold your little ones hand and take a walk, I would love to provide you with timeless art that captures the heart of your growing family!
