Newborn Session FAQ’s

Studio vs. Lifestyle Session

Posed sessions are more formal in nature and work best when the baby is very sleepy and “mold-able”. The focus in this type of session is on shots of the baby looking perfect, usually in blankets, wraps, hats, & headbands. With lifestyle sessions, there may be some posing but the intention is to capture more natural images of the baby. Our favorite thing about lifestyle newborn photography is capturing the wonder and amazement between the family members. Personally, we value both types of styles so we approach it as a posed session, but use the breaks in between poses to get our lifestyle shots. The breaks do not have to be wasted time for you. Have the feeding take place in the best light and you have yourself a great opportunity for some lifestyle shots.
