Newborn Posed or Newborn lifestyle shoot? The difference between the two explained.
Having a baby is an amazing time in your life! Your family is growing, and you don’t want to forget a moment. New babies grow so quickly. There are 2 options for Newborn photography. The newborn posed and the newborn in-home lifestyle shoot. You can also have a combination of 2.
It’s always best to book in your session during your pregnancy, to reserve your session and avoid disappointment. Once you are booked in, I will mark your due date in my calendar and once your little one has arrived safely, we can arrange an exact date for your session.
Newborn In-home lifestyle
In-home lifestyle newborn photography sessions are all about capturing your love and connection, and what your daily life looks like for you now.
The whole family can get involved (pets too) and these sessions are filled with lots of cuddles. Newborn props are not used in this session.
An In-Home Lifestyle session is a bit more flexible with timing, and can be held up to 4 weeks after birth. The older your little one gets, the more likely we can capture a little bit of their personality as well as photos with their eyes wide open.
The main focus in this session is the connections your family shares, which means you will all be in the majority of photos. I will photograph your little one on their own, in whatever you have them dressed in, and use your wraps and blankets.
A newborn posed photo session is best held within the first 2 weeks after birth while your little one is still sleepy and curly, having not yet fully adjusted to life on the outside.
I will bring a number of props, depending on the space we have to work with within your home. This includes backdrops, buckets, baskets, wraps, blankets and cute little hats and headbands.
