What is a Lifestyle Newborn Session?
What is a lifestyle newborn session?
A lifestyle newborn sessions are done in the comfort of the clients home and capture the intimate moments and love that the family already has for this new life. Photos will primarily be taken within the living room, nursery and mast bedroom of the the families home but can be done anywhere that is important to the family. We will capture the special moments between you and your new baby as well as those moments with your spouse and other children with the baby. We also love to include your pets in these sessions if permitted.
How long does a session take?
Anywhere from 2-3 hours. New babies are unpredictable and we understand that they may need to stop and take many breaks. Newborn sessions are longer to insure plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes, outfit changes or anything else that may need to be done.
What should we wear during these sessions?
I recommend that baby be in something simple. Onesies, wraps or even just a diaper is perfect. Parents and siblings are best in simple, comfortable and neutral colors. We don't want busy or bold outfits to distract from the beauty and simplicity of your new baby.
What can we do to prepare for our session?
We recommend that baby is fed right before the session to help him/her be sleepy and content. We also ask that all curtains and blinds are open to let in as much natural light as possible. Other than that, just relax and enjoy this time with your family!
Do you bring props?
We do not bring props to lifestyle newborn sessions as this type of session is meant to capture real life moments and the relationship that you ad your family share with this new baby. Items in your home/life that are important to you and your family are welcomed and encouraged to be incorporated into these sessions.
