Lifestyle Newborn



At-home lifestyle newborn sessions are about the connection and love that family members already have for this new life. I'll capture special moments with each family member and the baby as well as the family all together. If siblings are involved, we usually take care of those photos first so that they can go and play during the rest of the
session. I love when family pets can join in too. It can be helpful to have a friend or family member at the house who can watch siblings during the rest of the session so that Mom and Dad can be in photos with the baby. There will also be time for photos of the baby alone; these are usually done when the baby is sleepiest. I take photos of
babies swaddled or undressed and they are posed in a way you'd find them naturally.

What is a lifestyle newborn session?


I prefer babies dressed very simply in plain onesies, muslin swaddles, or just diaper - whatever their comfort level is. 

What should the baby wear?


A typical lifestyle newborn session takes 2-2.5 hours. When it comes to a newborn session, the baby is in charge, so we allow time to enough feeding and diaper changing breaks.

How long are these sessions?


I recommend keeping it simple and comfortable. Neutral, light (creams, whites, grays or pastel tones) work best as they don't take away from the natural beauty of your baby. You can add pops of color to your outfit, if you wish, by using jewelry or accessories. Solid or floral tops (and textures like big knits and lace) work best. Stay away from prominent logos or writing on clothing. For your husband, the same rules apply. 

What should we wear to the newborn session?


This is such a special time in your family’s life. There will be so many emotions during the shoot—love, excitement, wonder, amazement. It will be tough, but try to relax! Moms tend to stress out because this is a new experience and because they want things to be “perfect.” I will take your baby’s lead and allow baby to be the focus of the shoot. If your baby cries, or poops, it’s okay. I promise! Just focus on relaxing and cuddling with your sweet new addition and I will create images that you will cherish forever!
