WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY AND A POSED NEWBORN SESSION?
My approach to photographing a new baby is called lifestyle newborn photography. This simply means the focus is on your natural connections as a family instead of the use of props and heavy posing. While I use gentle guidance for posing (yes, i’ll tell you what to do with your hands), my main goal is to photograph the love between family members, and the awe they share at their new baby. I don’t physically pose baby or use any props aside from a swaddle blanket, and sometimes the odd moses basket. Instead, my style allows you to be fully present in the moment.
A LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION MIGHT BE RIGHT FOR YOU IF:
you prefer natural, candid moments captured during this sweet season
you want posing guidance without feeling overly posed or staged
real, authentic moments that help you remember this season
you want photos that focus on connections
THESE SESSIONS DON’T INCLUDE:
traditional posed newborn photos that include sleeping babies, props and specific outfits
the use of any props
specific outfits, hats or accessories. instead, baby will stay cozy in a swaddle, onesie or other special outfit that you supply (i do have a few knitted rompers that I can bring along with as well)
