Lifestyle newborn sessions typically run between 60-90 minutes and are shot in your home or my small studio. If we shoot in your home there is no need to clean the whole house or worry about messes….you just had a baby!
Newborns look best in simple swaddles. I bring pretty swaddling blankets, lighting equipment, and blankets/furry throws for newborn shoots. Newborn shoots are often done in the master bedroom on the bed. This works best because there is plenty of room, lighting can be set up easily, and older siblings can hold and snuggle baby without us worrying too much about safety. I bring a white duvet cover for the bed so that shots look clean, simple and bright. A lifestyle newborn shoot normally covers shots of the whole family, siblings, mother and children, father and children, and single shots of newborn.
Important to note: I do not pose newborn babies. Lifestyle shoots are intended to look natural and candid. I enjoy shooting in a style that emphasizes the newborn snuggled up with mom and dad, curled up with siblings, and laying comfortably on a bed or beanbag. If you prefer this style over posed/traditional newborn style, then we’re on the same page, and I’d love to hear from you!
