WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR LIFESTYLE NEWBORN?
Lifestyle sessions are a little more relaxed then a posed newborn session, mainly because the baby does not need to be asleep. To achieve posed newborn images, we typically need the baby to be in a deep sleep, however, this is not true for lifestyle images. As long as the baby is happy, we can shoot! A home with a lot of light is always preferred but it’s not a deal breaker. Many dark rooms provide some beautiful moody images which I tend to prefer. Shadows in photography are beautiful and provide depth to an image.
WHAT ROOMS DO YOU SHOOT IN? WHAT TIME OF DAY DO YOU SHOOT?
The main areas of the home that I typically shoot in are the nursery, the parents bedroom, and typically a living or family room. I choose the rooms with the best light, and oftentimes those rooms have the biggest windows. But not always. I typically do these shoots at around noon, because I’m looking for there to be light in your home. But you may have a home with afternoon light. If so, we would schedule for later in the day. We may also be working around a sibling’s nap schedule. This is the juggle of scheduling and is all communicated during your booking process and a time is selected appropriately.
