A very limited amount of lifestyle sessions are offered each year. Photo collections begin at $175. We also offer video collections for newborns & families.
Upon booking, we will send you a questionnaire that will equip us with all the details we'll need so that when your baby arrives, we are all set!
Please contact us for more details on what is included in each collection.
WHAT IS A LIFESTYLE SESSION?
A lifestyle session is perfect for the growing family that just welcomed their new bundle of joy into this world. Lifestyle sessions are about the deep connection and genuine love shared within a family. We focus on your every day life moments and not the poses.
We also offer Fresh 48 lifestyle sessions. This is an intimate session for families that want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured. Their first bath, their first feeding, their first diaper change, and their tiny details will all be captured during our time together.
WHERE AND WHEN DO THESE SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in the comfort of your own home (preferably in the nursery, master bedroom, or living room) between 5 and 10 days after their birth.
Fresh 48 sessions take place at the hospital you delivered in within the first 24-48 hours of your baby's life.
HOW LONG ARE THESE SESSIONS?
A typical lifestyle newborn session takes 2-3 hours. When it comes to a newborn session, the baby is in charge, so we allow time for feedings, diaper changes, and cuddling breaks.
A Fresh 48 session takes about an hour. We understand that this is a time of healing for both the mom and baby, and with all of the visitors you'll be getting, we'll work quickly and efficiently to ensure that we're not taking up too much of your time.
WHAT DO WE WEAR?
For lifestyle newborn sessions, we recommend keeping it super simple and comfortable. Neutral tones and light colors work best as they don't take away from the natural beauty of your baby. You can add pops of color to your outfit by using jewelry or accessories. Solid or floral tops and textures like big knits and lace work best. You'll want to avoid prominent logos or writing on clothing. The same goes for your husband. Your baby should be dressed in onesies, swaddles, or just their diaper; whatever keeps them happy, content & comfy!
For Fresh 48 sessions, we recommend whatever you are most comfortable in. This not only applies for the clothing you're wearing, but for hair and make-up, too. Most mommies prefer to be in their natural state and some freshen up with a shower and light make-up.
HOW CAN WE PREPARE FOR THE SESSION?
There will be so many emotions during the shoot—love, excitement, joy & amazement. Look forward to sharing precious moments together and try not to stress out or expect your session to go perfectly. We always recommend that your baby is changed, swaddled and fed shortly before our arrival—this way he/she is extra sleepy, content, and cozy! We also ask that only mom, dad, siblings, and your baby are in the room during your session.
DO YOU USE PROPS OR SPECIALIZE IN NEWBORN STYLIZED POSING?
The style of photography that we offer is lifestyle and allows us to focus on the real moments shared within a family. We'll of course, guide you along the way and ask questions like what your favorite thing to do as a family is, or things that represent your life currently. You may also feel free to incorporate any props into your session that you would like (i.e. baby blanket, ultrasound photos, books, etc.). If you like the traditional newborn posing, we'll be happy to refer you to our local photographer-friends who offer this style of photography.
WHEN ARE MY PHOTOS DELIVERED AND HOW?
Your edited photos are delivered within 4 weeks of your session by way of an online gallery called Pass Plus. You'll be able to easily view, share, and download all of your high-resolution images.
