What is lifestyle newborn photography?

A lifestyle newborn photography session is way to capture the life of your new family. The session is completely unique to your family.  A typical lifestyle session lasts about 2-4 hours because newborns can be quite unpredictable.  The session runs on your baby's time to include breaks for you to feed, change, snuggle and calm your little one if needed.  During my time with your family, I will capture the details, emotions, and beauty of your new family interacting together.  The way your newborn snuggles in when you hold them, their chubby little cheeks, tiny fingers and toes, nursery decor, the love between parents (and siblings) and their new baby…. I capture these once in a lifetime moments that pass by all too quickly, preserving them forever.  

I capture your life as it truly is, in its most organic form.  No uncomfortable poses for your newborn baby, no stress of trying to get them to stay in an unnatural position, no stress to the new mom (and baby) requiring her to stay out of the room so the baby will have a better chance of staying asleep in attempt to get a pose (they may wake up if they smell mom).  Because your new baby will not have to experience being put into unnatural poses that require being flexible, it is not critical to do the session with in the first 10 days.  This gives your new mom and baby time to recover and fall into a comfortable routine that is reflected beautifully in photographs.  

My goal is to make sure you are able to relax and be yourselves during your session.  I quietly record the natural moments of your family falling in love with each other.   I capture your new life with your baby: in their crib, snuggling your baby on your bed, nursing shots (if requested), getting your baby dressed, siblings helping their parents, asleep on a blanket (or your wedding dress) with a beautiful little hat or headband.  Lifestyle sessions capture your new, everyday life with your baby. They are little for such a short time and those first couple weeks become a blur, why not remember the details?
