I had such a great time photographing this sweet baby girl for her lifestyle photography session! I worked with her parents a couple months ago for their maternity session, and I knew it was going to be a lot of fun to photograph them again when baby arrived. They are such gentle parents, and completely in love with Miss Olivia. And how could they not be? She is so beautiful and sweet!
Let’s talk for a few minutes about lifestyle sessions. So many new moms don’t always know what they are. I’d like to use this post as an opportunity to shed some light on those differences, and highlight the beauty of lifestyle.
Lifestyle sessions are always done in your home. That is a huge benefit in an of itself, as you don’t need to worry about packing up your baby and gear to go to a studio or another location.
Beyond the ease of location, lifestyle sessions are simply *the* best way of capturing your life as it is right now. They show, in photos and even video, the exact life you will want to look back and remember. One day, that nursery you worked so hard to prepare will turn into a toddler room. And then a big kid room. And a teen room. It will change again and again until traces of that nursery you decorated with love are no longer present. But you know what? With a lifestyle session, you will always have those photos. You’ll be able to show your grown child just how their room looked when they were born.
Is there a chair you often sit in to feed and rock your baby? We can also show that in lifestyle sessions.
My favorite part of all when it comes to lifestyle sessions is the connection. Lifestyle sessions, like no other, show you loving on and snuggling your baby. The way you feel for this new life you created shines from your eyes. It will be so amazing for your child to see evidence of how loved they were from day one.
In a lifestyle session, we will also capture a lot of those candid, in-between moments. And you know what? Those are often the favorites from a session.
I encourage anyone who is expecting a baby to consider choosing a lifestyle newborn session! To learn more and get on my calendar, feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
