Newborn lifestyle sessions are best performed within the first 4 weeks after the birth. This type of photography showcases the precious features of your ever changing newborn, and most importantly, document what real life is like as a new family at home. Your favorite spots in the house to snuggle, your favorite way to hold them, and what calms them.
Sessions last about an hour and held in your own home. You can choose to do images outside at a location as well but this is a more posed approach. These images provide documentation of the new life you have with your loved ones. While the session is mostly un-posed with minimal direction, I will take a few posed images. I will also take a few images of baby alone and all their newborn details. Session includes a minimum of 20-35 images edited for your gallery or USB drive. These sessions are unique to you as a family and there are a lot of options to consider in your session.
We will have a conversation prior to you session so that I can best represent your style and personalities. Please do not worry about having your home perfectly tidy – I will work around clutter and move/put things back if I find them a distraction in your image. Imperfections tend to make images perfect and this type of photography is about being real, and you and your newborn’s comfort is key.
Immediate family only (parents, siblings and pets). If you would like to include additional family members to be in the portraits please notify photographer.
