What is Lifestyle Newborn Photography?

My approach to photographing a new baby is called lifestyle newborn photography. This simply means the focus is on your natural connections as a family instead of the use of props and heavy posing. While I use gentle guidance for posing, my main goal is to photograph the love between family members, and the awe they share at their new baby. Lifestyle sessions are fairly unposed. I often direct my clients on where to sit or stand, but mostly use something called “prompts” to bring out emotions and personality.

Lifestyle newborn photography is personal. They take place in your home, in your space – the place you spend the most time as a family. Sessions generally occur in the living room, the master bedroom bedroom, and baby’s nursery.

I could not have asked for a better afternoon to photograph this beautiful family and their newborn baby:
