Are you ready for some newborn cuteness? This little miss arrived over the summer and was ready for her first photoshoot. So, I headed to Floating City in Amwaj for an in-home lifestyle newborn session with her and her mamma. I can't get enough of those toes and that hair! Check out this session and then keep reading to find out why I prefer lifestyle newborns sessions instead of studio sessions.
Why in-home lifestyle rather than studio newborns sessions? I often get asked what kind of newborn sessions I offer. I offer two types of sessions: In-Home Lifestyle and Fresh 48 Hospital. Read below to find out why I prefer lifestyle newborn sessions.
1. Flexibility - Posed studio newborn sessions must be done within two weeks of the baby being born for best results. This can be difficult for any number of reasons (healing time for mama, medical concerns for baby that may delay a session, scheduling while family is visiting to see the baby, etc.). Lifestyle newborn sessions really can be done anytime during those first few early months so you have much more flexibility when picking a day and time to schedule your session.
2. Low stress - There is no pressure on you or baby. During lifestyle sessions I always follow the lead of the baby and take photos of whatever you would normally be doing during the time I am at your home. Sure, we can get some cute photos of baby alone in a favorite outfit, but more than that it is about your connection with baby. They way they look at you. They way they liked to be held, rocked, fed, snuggled.
3. Time - A lifestyle newborn session can be completed in about an hour. Studio sessions tend to take much longer. While the results of a studio session can be gorgeous with perfectly posed sleeping babies, it often takes 3-4 hours of time to get those results. If the length of a studio session sounds like too much, a lifestyle newborn session might be a better option for you.
