In home newborn lifestyle sessions are a great alternative to a posed session for capturing your growing family. Many families with young siblings choose this option for ease and comfort. I come to your home between 1 to 12 weeks post birth to capture your new family member. We often use two rooms in your home - typically the master, the nursery or the living room. It is mostly based on lighting and space as well as where you are most comfortable. Natural areas of your home that you would commonly use.

For this family we used the master bedroom and living room area. It was a very laid back session - mama nursing her new little one while dad played with big brother. We had some fun and snuggles in the master as well as a quiet moment with mama on her own. These moments are truly beautiful and oh so fleeting. I’m honored to be able to capture this special time in their lives.

This was the sweetest little family. They booked a lifestyle session to document their family naturally and a newborn posed session to capture their brand new baby’s new-ness. The little toddler was so infatuated with her brother and loved giving him lots of snuggles and affection.

Newborn lifestyle sessions are a beautiful way to remember this fleeting moment in your life. Everyone snuggling in bed together reading a book. Mom sitting in a chair feeding the baby while a toddler crashes toy cars around together. Dad making some coffee while the noise of little children laughing fills the room.

They decided to sit together on the couch. Big sister sat on mom’s side caressing her brother’s little head, then moved over to sit with dad. Lifestyle sessions are pretty much go with the flow. Upstairs they sat on the bed together, also did some fun playing while mom fed the baby.

I just love how natural and casual this session turned out. The rooms we spent time in are rooms I typically ask to use – a master bedroom, living room and occasionally a kitchen or nursery.
