Lifestyle Sessions tell a story
Let me begin by saying that I'm a BIG fan of home lifestyle sessions at any age but ESPECIALLY as a newborn. As new parents or welcoming a new addition, your life has undergone some big changes! By utilizing your own space, you are not only telling the story as true to YOU as possible, you are choosing a session style that is designed to keep you comfortable and closest to what's meaningful for you.
- It's Most Natural! This is the first home your baby knows. While posed fine art portraits of babies in headdresses are beautiful, they aren't telling the story of your family or your child. By choosing a lifestyle session, you are telling the story of the welcoming of your little one into your life. You're given the opportunity to capture those toys passed down through generations in the nursery you labored over, surrounded by all the little touches of your life.
- The Session is relaxed. If an unexpected change of clothes is needed, it's there for you. Need a break to snuggle, feed, or to grab an extra blanket? All there. I understand that the welcoming of a new baby is a welcome new routine and there is no pressure to perform in these sessions. You're likely getting less rest, your body is bouncing back from childbirth, and siblings are also adjusting to the needs of baby and all of this OKAY. Lifestyle sessions flow by the needs of baby and family.
- Parent(s) are holding baby. I absolutely love capturing the connection between baby and the parent(s). You are their home. I welcome the cries, the yawns, the smiles, and the stretches. By capturing you holding your little one, they are most comfortable by being kept warm and near their most familiar people, smells, and heartbeats.
