what is a "newborn lifestyle session"?


Having a baby can be the most important and memorable experience of your life. Whether it is your first child and the beginnings of a family or it is a welcome addition, you will always cherish those precious first moments with your baby. A newborn lifestyle session captures the adorable moments and intense emotions of this special time at the comfort of your home. It will take place in your environment, where you are most comfortable and relaxed, and so is your baby.

A newborn lifestyle session should generally take place within the first 2-3 weeks after birth. Most babies are still really tired and sleep a lot at that age what makes the session run smoothly. The session will last between 2 and 3 hours. The baby will typically determine the flow of the session! Please reserve your session while you are still pregnant!


During a newborn lifestyle session, I will help you with some flattering poses, but mostly I will let the session unfold naturally. My favorite images evoke emotion or bring you back to a special place and time where you felt love and joy. I primarily shoot newborn lifestyle images in the nursery, master bedroom and living room. I will look for the best light all around your house, however it's more about finding the rooms or spaces with the best light in your home!


I am also pleased to offer a generous referral program. Your recommendation to family and friends is the highest compliment you can give! To thank you for this, you will receive a $100 print credit to use toward your next session. In addition, if you refer 3 new clients who complete a session with me, I’ll waive the equivalent value of the session fee for your next session.

Limited number of sessions accepted each month. Please reserve your session early to ensure availability.
