During the first two weeks of life, your baby will change so much! Day by day, they will start growing and developing their own personality. While you adjust to life with a new little one, take the opportunity to photograph them during the first couple of weeks. Capture the brand newness of your tiny baby -  you will be forever thankful that you did. They will never be this tiny again! 

Lifestyle newborn sessions are all about raw authenticity. They occur in the comfort of your home, ideal for new big brothers and sisters to feel that they may be themselves for the session.  Lifestyle sessions are a lovely way to document interaction with your little one, showcase how much you adore them, and capture the nursery. A lifestyle approach focuses on baby in your hands, arms, up close shots of their sweet little fingers, lips and feet. Lifestyle photography leverages natural light and offers a lovely real-life perspective. Lifestyle images offer a timeless perspective for your baby's first photo session.

The pros of lifestyle newborn photo sessions:

I adore lifestyle sessions. Documenting you and your family in the comfort of your home in natural light is timeless and is endlessly personal. I look for the area in your home that offers the best light and typically aim to shoot in a living room, nursery and/or master bedroom and even capture big brother showing off his room. While lifestyle sessions do capture solo baby shots, this style places emphasis on interaction with family members: baby laying on your shoulder, baby in your arms, baby laying on dad’s chest, baby lying next to older siblings, etc.

If there are personal items that you’d like to incorporate into your session, I’d be happy to photograph them. Please don’t be worried about finding something particular if nothing comes to mind. Timeless lifestyle images are best captured with less ‘stuff’ and I will have a variety of neutral swaddles, headbands and hats to offer during our session.

The best part: I come to YOU! No need to suit up baby and drag them out of the home. I've photographed babes up to seven weeks new. If in the insanity of welcoming your baby,  the weeks pass quicker than you expected, newborn photos are still acheiveable.

The Cons of Lifestyle newborn photo sessions:

The downside of lifestyle sessions: your home will be photographed. While I'm totally ok capturing a bit of disarray, I find that exhausted moms feel pressured to exert precious time and energy toward tidying up prior to my arrival.

If you're seeking posed, solo naked baby shots with props, The Newborn Collection may be just what you're looking for.  Find a more in-depth look at the difference between a Lifestyle Newborn photo session and a posed newborn photo session here

There is an unmistakeable sweetness about brand new, just arrived newborn miracles and I adore photographing it. These little newborn babes stay small for a short time - do them the honor of documenting their first days and creating a visual legacy they can be proud of. If you prefer a lifestyle perspective to welcome your newborn, our Lifestyle Newborn Session may be just what you're looking for! More information regarding the difference between Lifestyle Newborn and Posed Newborn sessions here.

Posed newborn photos are undeniably precious. Your wee-little, sweet, serene and sleepy offers the perfect miracle to design personalized artwork to grace the walls of your home. Posed sessions document your new arrival, their sweet little naked bums in all their newborn glory. Posed sessions take place in my studio with an intense lighting and prop setup and capture mostly baby as well as beautiful posed photos with parents and siblings. 

Pros of posed newborn photo sessions vs. lifestyle sessions

If you're seeking studio newborn photos, the best part: you come to me! You have the perfect excuse to get out of the house for a bit and best of all...No need to spend hours cleaning your home prior to my arrival - we all know what the house looks like with a newborn at home! Save your precious energy for time with your family! Many moms desire the session to focus less on parents, much more on baby. While posed sessions offer parent and sibling images, most of the session will center around achieving solo newborn images. Sit back and relax, take a nap of your own if you like!

Cons of posed newborn photo sessions vs. lifestyle sessions

Newborn babies don't stay small long and these newborn photo sessions are often booked prior to delivery, completed within the first 14 days of life. Babies are born, by design, with a lovely flexibility which aids in achieving poses. These sessions require a bit more time as baby must be sleeping in order to pose, often up to two hours.
