why i love lifestyle newborn sessions :
Because this is holy ground.
You are getting acquainted with your most recent miracle - this new soul, conceived in love, long-awaited and labored for, with the breath of God in their little lungs.
These are once in a lifetime moments, whether this is your first baby or your tenth. I know that. I love that.
This new little soul and your bond with it - it's worth stopping and awing over. It's worth making a record of how this baby looks in your arms, and what your home and your life felt like, right after they arrived and changed everything.
what to expect from a lifestyle newborn session :
-> We will shoot at your home, but please do not worry about having everything (or anything) picked up, or your decorating chops. Trust me on this.
-> We will move at a relaxed pace. I'm expecting to take breaks to nurse and soothe the baby. Don't worry about how long it's taking.
-> We will probably start in the late morning, and go for at least two hours. If you've noticed or can watch for a time when lots of light comes into key rooms (nursery, living room, parents' bedroom), that can be helpful in choosing a start time.
-> Expect images similar to the ones you see in my gallery! I don't have a bean bag, or a trunk full of designer swaddles and headbands or props. Lifestyle newborn photography has a very unposed, documentary approach, compared to traditional newborn photography. I'm a lifestyle newborn girl!
-> I will deliver an online gallery within 3 weeks after our session, of at least 50 final images. You can download them to keep forever, and you can order prints of your favorites, large or small, through the gallery. If you'd like to see my print prices beforehand, please let me know!
-> Lifestyle newborn sessions cost $350
