I am so excited to offer newborn pictures to welcome baby to the family! Newborn photo sessions are a relaxed style. Lifestyle photography is a mixture of posed and authentic moments. At infant photo sessions as well as most of my sessions, I create real-life scenarios that generate authentic moments. Many times I will direct the parent and / or child to an activity such as reading a book, tickling, or giving butterfly kisses. Encouraging moments of interaction generate real-life emotional connections.
Newborn photography sessions include the entire family, and even pets! Because of our relaxed pace and the need to meet baby’s (and siblings) needs, I schedule enough time to allow short breaks for the little ones. Photo sessions last from one to one and half hours to allow flexibility.
Your baby will be captured in a natural environment like the nursery, swaddled, and interacting with the siblings, and sleeping in the crib. I utilize natural light near windows. Common locations are the master bedroom and the living room, but there are no limitations.
One to two weeks after birth is an ideal age to photograph newborns in this style.
