Newborn Sessions

My newborn photo sessions are all about celebrating the arrival of the new little person (or people) in your life.  I offer both a Lifestyle or a Styled Newborn Session.

Lifestyle Newborn Session

This session is an hour long and takes place in the comfort of your home.  A Lifestyle Session focuses on the interactions between you and your baby, using your very own props such as a special blanket or toy to tell the story of your newest little arrival.  This session does not need to happen within the first 10 days after baby is born and can take place when baby is already 10 days old.  Parents and siblings are included in this session.  While there may be some posed photos it is mostly it is about allowing the real moments between you and your baby to unfold.   

Styled Newborn Session

The best time to do a styled session is when baby is between 5 and 10 days old.  This is so that we can get those curled up, sleepy poses while baby is still ‘mouldable’.  I will bring along a variety of wraps, hats, headbands, blankets and knitted outfits for baby.  The session is scheduled for 2 – 3 hours to allow time for feeding, changing and any comfort breaks your baby might need.  While the main star of this session is your baby, we do also include some posed photos with mom, dad and siblings if time allows.  

 What to expect at your newborn session

The best time for a Styled Session is when your baby is between 4 and 10 days old.  For a Lifestyle Session your baby can be older than 10 days.

Clothes and Styling 

For a Styled Session, I will bring along props such as wraps, baskets, beanies and little outfits.  In a Lifestyle Session we will use whatever props you want to include in the session (e.g. a special blanket or toy).

Where does the session take place?

Both the Styled and the Lifestyle session will take place in the comfort of your own home.  For the Styled Session I will bring along my props as well as a portable backdrop and stand.  I will need an area with natural light and a space of about 1.5m x 1.5m to set up the backdrop.

Professional Hair and Make up

If you would like to have your hair and make up done by a professional make up artist, this can be arranged at an additional cost.  Not only will you get a little pampering before your session, but you will feel just a little more confident in front of the camera and it will make your images even more gorgeous.
