LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER
Celebrate your tiny miracle
Nothing is more magical than welcoming a new baby into your family. The tiny, delicate fingers and toes; the precious, soft skin; the certainty that this is a love unlike any you have known. You are certain that your life will never be the same. These moments pass so quickly. It is a privilege for me to preserve this special milestone for you and your family to remember forever. Everyone who has been a parent knows that those early days go by in the blink of an eye. The things you treasure so much – the smell of a baby’s skin, the feel of his or her little body cuddled against yours – become distant but cherished memories as your children quickly change and grow. Let me be there at the beginning of your little one’s journey to capture this time of beauty and innocence in professional photographs that you and your loved ones will treasure.
Preserving your baby’s first moments will be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make for your family. As your photographer, I am committed to delivering you a quality product you will be proud of for generations to come.
What is a Lifestyle Newborn Session?
All of my newborn sessions are lifestyle, which simply means the focus is on your natural connections as a family. While I provide posing guidance to capture the prettiest light and settings possible, I don’t physically pose baby or use any props. Instead, my storytelling style allows you to be fully present in the moment, soaking it all in.
A lifestyle newborn session might be right for you if:
You desire natural, candid moments documented during this sweet season
You want just a little posing guidance without feel overly posed or staged
Real, authentic moments that make you feel are high on your list
You’re seeking a minimalist approach that focuses on connections
These sessions don’t include:
Traditional posed newborn photos that include sleeping babies, props and specific outfits
The use of any props. Since I focus on the documentary side, I will not be posing your baby in any baskets, blankets or bowls.
Specific outfits, hats or accessories. Instead, baby will stay cozy in a swaddle, onesie or other outfit that he or she will actually wear at home. (I recommend keeping it neutral to really capture baby’s sweet features.)
Where does the session take place?
Lifestyle newborn sessions take place at your own home. In-home sessions are just how they sound – all the photos are taken in your own home, typically involving baby’s nursery or your living room. They’re meant to capture life in your home as it is in this moment: full of excitement, joy and so much love.
When should I book a session?
It’s recommended to book at least 2-4 months before your due date. We’ll want to have the session take place within 14 days of baby’s arrival, and I only take a limited number of sessions each month to accommodate this. We’ll choose a tentative date based on your due date; once baby arrives, you’ll just need to reach out to coordinate the final day and time.
There is also an option to sign up for the Milestone Collection which includes 4 sessions at different times.
