Unlike posed newborn photography, lifestyle newborn photography is not just about the sleeping babies, curled and molded into baskets; but it’s about the interactions and the love the parents feel for their new arrival. These sessions are where you can really get a true sense of family in their home. So I capture away those details. From an intimate hug between the mother and the baby to a lovely crib hanging that got gifted from a family friend.
2. YOUR HOME AS OUR BACKDROP:
One of the reasons I love lifestyle newborn sessions over the posed ones is I have the whole house as my backdrop instead of just a seamless paper. This gives me so much more room to work with! My job is to capture memories and I can’t think of a better place to capture those precious memories than baby's first home.
3. NO TIME FRAME:
When you schedule a lifestyle newborn session, the session can take place anytime within the first 7 weeks after the baby is born. Because the sessions are focused on interaction, the baby does not need to be under 10 days old in order to ensure their sleepy, squishy bodies can maintain curled positions. I’ve had some of my favorite sessions with babies 4 weeks and older.
