Welcoming a newborn into your family is a special and precious moment. That's why I offer Lifestyle Newborn Sessions, where I capture those intimate moments in the comfort of your own home during the first two weeks of your baby's life. Lifestyle sessions are all about celebrating the natural and authentic connection between you, your baby, and your family. We don't rely on props, instead, we focus on the little details that make your family unique. From the way you rock your baby to sleep to the sweet embrace of a proud father, we are there to document every moment. And let's not forget about the excitement of older siblings who are eager to welcome their new baby brother or sister into the family. Trust me to capture the warmth, love, and joy of your growing family during this special time in your lives.
Q: What is a lifestyle in-home newborn session?
A: A lifestyle in-home newborn session is a type of photography session that takes place in the comfort of the family's home. It focuses on capturing natural and candid moments of the newborn and their family in their everyday living environment.
Q: When is the best time to schedule a lifestyle in-home newborn session?
A: Similar to traditional newborn sessions, it's ideal to schedule a lifestyle in-home session within the first two weeks of the baby's life when they are more likely to be sleepy and easily posed.
Q: Do I need to prepare my home in a specific way for the in-home session?
A: It's advisable to tidy up and declutter the areas where you anticipate taking photos. However, the goal of a lifestyle session is to capture your family in its natural setting, so there's no need for an extensive cleanup.
Q: What should we wear for a lifestyle in-home newborn session?
A: Wear comfortable and coordinated outfits that reflect your family's style. Neutral tones often work well for a timeless and cohesive look. Avoid clothing with busy patterns that might distract from the focus on the family and the newborn.

A: Absolutely! Including siblings and pets is a common and wonderful addition to lifestyle sessions. It captures the whole family dynamic and creates meaningful, candid moments.

A: Lifestyle sessions are often a bit shorter than traditional posed sessions, usually lasting around 1 hour. The duration allows for capturing a variety of moments without disrupting the natural flow of your day.
Q: What happens if the baby needs to be fed or changed during the session?
A: Lifestyle sessions are designed to be flexible and accommodating to the needs of the newborn. If a feeding or changing break is necessary, it's factored into the session, ensuring a comfortable and stress-free environment for everyone.
Q: Can the photographer help with posing and positioning during the lifestyle session?
A: Yes, part of the skill of a lifestyle photographer is capturing authentic moments while providing gentle guidance on positioning. I will aim to make you feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera.
Q: What kind of activities can we do during the lifestyle session?
A: Lifestyle sessions often involve natural interactions such as cuddling, feeding, playing, or even just spending time together. The goal is to capture genuine moments that reflect the essence of your family life.
Q: Can we request specific shots or moments to be captured during the lifestyle session?
A: Absolutely! Communicate your preferences and any specific moments or activities you'd like to include with the photographer during your consultation.
Q: Can the photographer provide guidance on choosing the best locations within our home for photos?
