BEFORE THE SESSION
Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your own home. They are reserved on the calendar with your due date. Once the baby arrives, we schedule a date for the session, typically 1/2 weeks after birth. If you have already had your baby, don't panic. I do my best to fit in last minute requests.
DURING THE SESSION
The session typically lasts between 1-2 hours (lifestyle) or 3-4 hours (posed), depending on the mood of the baby. There is no strict time limit and I leave plenty of time for nursing and changing diapers. The session is relaxed and candid, focusing on the relationship and bond with your new baby. There is nothing to stress about, I promise!
AFTER THE SESSION
Two weeks after your session, you will receive the online gallery containing up to 50 images to view. You will pick your 20 favorite images to keep and download in high resolution to your computer. You can always upgrade and purchase additional images.
This type is very stylized with props, headbands, hats, little outfits, and wraps. Baby is posed in adorable positions within different ‘set-ups’.
This session typically takes about 3 to 4 hours to conduct. The reason for this is because it is essential for the baby to be in a deep sleep in order to pose the baby. It’s best done within the first two weeks or so after birth.
We need to allow time to get the baby to sleep, feedings, changing, soiled blanket removal, adjusting poses, adding props etc. All this must be done slowly and quietly so that the baby doesn’t wake up.
Lifestyle photography is a style of shooting that focuses on real life, true moments, and ultimately creates timeless art. Although I do minimal posing to get people into nice light and position, the magic happens when I say something like, “OK, now tickle each other!” With newborn lifestyle, I thrive on documenting the baby in their environment with parents and siblings. It is natural and sweet. These sessions are less about getting the baby in a perfect pose, and more about capturing the baby in a more informal way.
