All of my newborn sessions are in-home, lifestyle sessions.   This type of session is more relaxed, uses your home as a backdrop, and focuses on interactions with your baby, though I also spend time taking pictures of Baby on his own as well.  It’s a break from the traditional posed newborn photography that you often see on Pinterest.   Because of this I will only use a couple of blankets, hats, or headbands provided by the client.  I don’t use other props.   

Most photographers recommend that you schedule a session within 10 days of being born. Sometimes this can be hard as you struggle to adjust to lack of sleep or if Baby shows up early or late.   The reason that most photographers require you to book within 10 days is because after that age, a baby starts to stay awake a bit more, making it difficult to pose them. With lifestyle photography you have a bit more wiggle room for booking a session as no posing of the baby will be done. Although, don’t wait too long---they start to gain weight and grow so quickly!   The sooner the better for booking a lifestyle newborn session, but within a month is recommended. 

**I only take newborn session on weekday mornings.  Due to my current schedule with preschool pickup, I do not take sessions more than 15 minutes from my home.  Please contact me for more information.

Below is  a sampling of lifestyle images from newborn sessions.   Be aware that no two lifestyle sessions will be the same because no two LIVES are the same.  Lifestyle sessions are truly unique to your family.
