What is a lifestyle session?

My approach to lifestyle photography is mix between documentary and classic portraiture. I like to take a peek into what real life with a newborn looks like. While I like to take the “fly on the wall approach” I do find it necessary to step in and give a little direction at times. Some of my most treasured images are those of my everyday, un-posed, authentic, in-the-moment reality. These are the moments that I love to photograph. My goal with our session is to document all the love and joy you’re your new little one has brought into your home, sharing the beginning of your story.  This is really a fun session and provides some really wonderful and memorable moments.


What is a Posed Session?

Timing is everything when it comes to newborn studio photography.  I like to try and get the babies into my studio within the first two weeks of age in order to get those sleepy, posed shots.  When babies are that tiny they are more likely to provide me with a deep sleep and still curl up into very sweet poses similar to the positions they were in the womb. I provide a variety of hats, props, hair pretties, wraps and blankets to choose from.
