Lifestyle Newborn | Capturing your family and newborn in a very relaxed, natural state
What to do: Get in touch with me any time during your pregnancy. Upon receipt of the non-refundable retainer fee and executed agreement, I will schedule in your due date. This way, at least it’s on the books. However, as we all know, babies decide their own timeline, so your baby may arrive earlier (or later) than expected. That’s okay. However, I must be notified within five (5) days of your giving birth so we can finalize your appointment date when your baby is between two - four weeks old. If you are having a scheduled delivery, we can schedule your newborn session ahead of time. If you just had your baby and would like to have professional newborn photos, contact me immediately to set up a session time and I will do my best to fit you in.
When to book: The ideal time I like to photograph newborns for lifestyle sessions is when your baby is between two - four weeks old. Waiting until they are two - four weeks old allows baby to interact with mom, dad and any siblings. The baby can be awake and/or asleep. I use the natural environment of your home to capture these fleeting moments.
Where session takes place: I will photograph your newborn in the comfort and security of your own home using natural window light. Please do not stress yourself out by cleaning your house getting ready for your session. You just had a baby, after all. Your job is to feed, comfort and love on your baby. Upon arrival on the day of the session, I will take a quick tour of your home to determine which area will have the best window light. This could be your bedroom, living room, and/or nursery. A window facing north gives the best natural light, but no worries if your area doesn't have a north-facing window. If we are in the bedroom, just remove clutter from the nightstands so they will not be in the photographs. Bedding should be simple and white, if at all possible, as white reflects the light wonderfully.
Time commitment: Lifestyle newborn sessions will take approximately two hours.
Photography is most definitely an investment. You are investing in lifetime memories to be enjoyed now and passed down to future generations that you can never get back except in photos.
For you, time stands still. For your friends and family, they enjoy your creation of new life. For your child, as they grow older. For their children, a legacy of love. This is capturing a fleeting moment in time. With my all-inclusive pricing and four different photography options, you will not only receive images to share but also something tangible that you can hold and cherish forever.
