Newborn photography sessions are something very exciting and new for this year! I have been doing newborn sessions for about 4 years now and they are a beautiful way of those first few weeks , when they change so much and its all a bit of a blur for everyone . The sessions took place before baby was 2 weeks old and I would have a number of parents who missed out on those sessions due to baby arriving early , or if there was a prolonged hospital stay and I wanted to offer something that was a little more relaxed and less restricted by time.
So I am now offerring a Lifestyle session for babies and their parents ….. so what is the difference?
Posed sleepy newborn sessions are reliant on a couple of things – they need to be completed before baby is 2 weeks old ideally and baby does need to be asleep and settled and this can take a fair amount of time . Lifestyle sessions can take place anytime up to when baby is about 6-8 weeks old and can be in the Studio or completed at home to make it even more personal for you – this is ideal especially if you have had a Caesarean and cannot drive for the first few weeks.
Lifestyle sessions can include brothers and sisters and as you can see on the photographs here , even the dog can be involved , so that we really capture and celebrate the arrival of your baby into your family. We can photograph baby awake and asleep getting those gorgeous expressions , and clothed or naked – depending on what your little one prefers and I can still use the beautiful blankets , wraps and headbands that I love to add a little gentle styling to the session
If you would like to book a Lifestyle Newborn session then get in touch – you can e mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org and lets see what we can plan for you
This session was in the Studio – located in the lovely Village of Banks in West Lancashire – I have gorgeous natural light flooding in and we made the most of this and created a simple beautiful white set up , to just focus on baby Theo …. and obviously Cooper the dog needed to be there too !
If you would like some ideas of how to display your beautiful photographs from the session – then this is a gorgeous display for a Living room or Bedroom ……
And if you would like prints for Family or to keep yourself then this new Folio Box is perfect , and can be personalised with Babys name and date of birth – a lovely heirloom for your family
