Newborn lifestyle sessions
A newborn at-home lifestyle session is about the new connection and love between family members and the new baby, capturing a small glimpse into those early days with your new little one in your home. This type of session is considered a story-telling session, and usually includes unposed and semi-posed shots in the nursery, master bedroom, living room and other key places in the home. It will capture special moments not only of the baby alone, but with each family member and the baby as well as the family all together. Of course fur-babies are welcome to join in!
Newborn lifestyle sessions are typically scheduled between 5 and 14 days to have a greater chance of capturing some sleepy shots of baby. However the beauty of this type of session is that there is increased flexibility in timing, as the main objective of a newborn lifestyle session is not the sleepy, posed shots; it’s to capture a glimpse into your new life with your new bundle of joy.
When it comes to a newborn session, the baby is in charge. These type of sessions can take one to two hours plus, depending on baby’s mood, if they need to eat, be changed, etc. One important thing to know is don’t stress about mess! You’ve just had a baby! Only a small portion of your home will be in the photographs. When you book, you will receive a Newborn Session Guide to walk you through what to expect, what to wear and how to prepare for the day of the session.
When to book your session:
If you desire to have the photos done before baby is 2 weeks new, it's recommended to book an approximate date relative to your due date; the exact session date will be determined once the baby has been born.
