I offer two options for newborns. Lifestyle sessions and studio sessions. Both options offer beautiful images for you to remember all the details of your newborn during this special time. When choosing between the two different types of sessions, the focus should be on the end result for the final images you want to display of the baby.
Do you want beautiful posed props that add a bit of whimsy and fun to the session? Or do you want more relaxed moments at home that focus on your connection as a new family hanging on your walls? While some parents prefer the convenience of having props and poses already decided for them, others like having the luxury of not having to take a new baby out of their home so early and prefer to capture the baby there. Some parents also like to incorporate the nursery and master bedrooms into the session, adding a more personalized touch to their images.
Planning for studio sessions starts at the time of booking. Once we have a date locked in for the baby's session we will then begin to sort out all the little details. This is where we brainstorm on color choices or coordinate with nursery color scheme, favorite outfits from the client closet, and what poses parents most want to capture.
Images will include parents and siblings if desired. While all images are designed to reflect each client's desires, they are also created to be timeless treasures your family will cherish for years to come. Classic colors in the studio are soft muted tones that reflect a classic and clean style.
Studio sessions are limited to morning and early afternoon time slots, and can last approximately 1-2 hours. Part of this time frame allows for breaks to feed and nurture babies ensuring they are as comfortable as possible throughout the entire session.
Lifestyle photography is quite different from a newborn studio session. Lifestyle sessions are considered a luxury experience. It's a more relaxed way to approach newborn photography by allowing things to be captured as they occur naturally by taking baby's lead.
Lifestyle sessions focus on capturing the connection between family members and their new baby in the comfort of their own home, often times incorporating the nursery, master bedroom and other living areas of the home.
Not only does this take the pressure off of a baby having to be posed a certain way in a studio session, it also removes the pressure from mom by allowing her to relax a bit more the morning of the session and focus on truly being present in that moment. Images will include parents and siblings if desired, and can last anywhere from 1-2 hours.
A Grow with Me bundle is a package that focuses on the important milestones achieved in a baby's first year of life. If you are planning to document these unique stages of growth, then a bundle package may be a good option for you.
The Grow with Me bundle is only offered to newborn clients at the time of their newborn booking and offers sessions at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months of age. Your baby grows and changes a tremendous amount during their first year of life, and the greatest legacy we can ever leave our children is happy memories.
