What's The Difference Between Posed And Lifestyle?
The first few weeks of your baby’s life are full of tiny tender moments that you will want to remember forever, and I’m here to help you capture them! My goal during this session is to deliver a gallery full of timeless images that hold memories and emotions of your first days with your baby. You get to choose between two styles of photography for this session - posed or lifestyle photography.
POSED NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY
For a posed newborn session, I will bring a posing table, lighting, fabric wraps and backdrops, and quite a bit of my equipment and props to your home. We usually start these sessions around 9am - 10:30am since this seems to be a perfect time for your baby to be extra sleepy, especially if you’re able to keep them awake the hour prior to our session. Parents get to relax while I pose and photograph your baby! After getting images of baby, if you’re wanting family pictures we take those either on your couch or in front of an empty wall in your home.
The ideal age for posed newborn photos is between 5-21 days old since they are usually still sleepy and less wiggly at this age. After three weeks, they begin to stay awake longer and stretch out more, no longer staying in the cute little squishy poses that we can achieve when they are younger.
LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY
Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in your home or in a studio! The studio I rent out for sessions is called The Gray Lab. They have white walls, beautiful windows, and lots of seating options. Lifestyle sessions are more natural and candid. I will photograph your family as you spend time together and capture raw and real images of you and your family as you are. I’ll take pictures of baby in their crib, of parents feeding baby, close up detail shots of baby, siblings playing with baby, your pet interacting with baby, etc. I bring my camera and just in case, a small flash. I love to use window lighting for a more natural feel.
This style of photography is a great option if you’re wanting to capture more genuine memories in a relaxed setting. For lifestyle sessions, your baby can be any age! If you choose the in-home option I will ask you what time of day your home has the best lighting to try to schedule it for around that time. I will also ask you for some pictures of your home during this time so I can get an idea of the layout.
What's The Process?
The best time to book your newborn session is during the second trimester of pregnancy - this is usually the same time that people book their maternity sessions! I try to get your newborn session booked for about a week or so after your due date. Once your baby is born, I ask that you let me know within a day or two so we can adjust the date if we need to.
When you're ready to book a session, go to the 'Book A Session' tab and fill out my contact form. Once you've submitted it, keep an eye out on your email! I will reach out to go over all of your session details and get you booked.
After your session, I will send you a proofing gallery which will include all of the best images from your session. These images will not be fully edited! Here you will choose your favorite images and decide if you'd like to purchase any additional images.
After choosing your images and paying for any additional images, you will receive your final gallery within 6 weeks! I usually average around 2-3 weeks but that depends on how busy of a season we are in.
Hopefully this answers any questions! If you have additional questions please fill out my contact form and I will get back to you soon.
