The Process…

1. The Consultation

We’ll start with a friendly phone call to break the ice. I believe in being more than just a photographer with a camera; I aim to be a friend capturing your cherished moments. During our call, we’ll discuss styling, location, scheduling, and pricing. Every package I offer is customized around the information I get from our call and your specific needs. We don’t want to skip this step!

2. Booking and Preparation

If you feel we’re the perfect match, I’ll send over a custom contract, invoice, and payment schedule, all easily completed online. It’s hassle-free and just a few clicks away! Afterwards, we’ll pin down the date and time, officially starting our exciting journey. You’ll also receive my official styling guide, location suggestions, and other valuable tips to ensure you’re fully prepared.

3. Session Day

The big day is all about fun and zero stress. Whether we’re aiming for posed elegance or candid charm, I’ll guide you through it all, ensuring every moment is captured beautifully. And don’t worry about feeling awkward in front of the camera—I’ll make sure you feel comfortable and confident throughout the entire session! I will take a variety of photos for you to choose from upon delivery.

4. Photo Delivery and Prints

After our session, you’ll get access to your online gallery of all your wonderful images. Select your favorites included in the package, or choose to upgrade and purchase the entire gallery.  For wall-worthy prints, professional lab quality makes all the difference. Conveniently, alongside your gallery, you’ll find a storefront for ordering high-quality prints. I’ll handle all the details, ensuring your prints are absolutely flawless. Once everything is perfect, your prints will be on their way, delivered directly to your door!

Lifestyle newborn photography is a style of photography that captures the authentic moments and emotions of your family’s life with your newborn. It focuses on natural settings and interactions, rather than posed shots, to tell the story of your family’s journey together.

During a lifestyle newborn session, I’ll come to your home (or in some cases you’ll come to the studio) to capture the genuine moments of love, connection, and joy shared within your family. We’ll focus on documenting the everyday moments of life with your newborn, whether it’s cuddling on the couch, feeding time, or simply enjoying quiet moments together.

The beauty of lifestyle newborn photography is its simplicity. You don’t need to worry about elaborate props or backdrops – just be yourselves! I may provide some gentle guidance on lighting and positioning, but the focus is on capturing your family naturally. I do recommend a nice declutter and cleaning session prior to the photoshoot for the best aesthetic.

It’s completely normal for babies to be fussy or awake during a session, and that’s okay! Lifestyle newborn photography embraces the unpredictability of life with a newborn, so we’ll work with whatever mood your baby is in to capture authentic moments.

Your lifestyle newborn session is a special opportunity to capture the love and connection within your family, so I encourage everyone who plays a significant role in your newborn’s life to attend. This includes parents, siblings, grandparents, and even family pets if you wish! The more love, the merrier!

I know how eager you’ll be to see your photos, so I’ll work diligently to edit and deliver your images as soon as possible. You can expect to receive your fully edited gallery within 2-3 weeks after the session, ready to cherish and share with your loved ones.

At this time, I am only offering lifestyle newborn sessions in-home or in-studio. Please check out this article for more info.
