I absolutely LOVE shooting at-home lifestyle newborn sessions - it's such a special time and apart from feeling really privileged to be invited into people's homes to record it, I feel really passionate that it should be captured as you will want to remember it and not in a stiffly posed and unnatural way.
When I come to your home I'm aiming to highlight the beautiful relationship between family members and the gorgeous new addition - capturing you all just as you are. Rather than the traditional newborn photography approach of posing babies who don't want to be posed, my style is somewhere between documentary and portrait photography known as 'lifestyle photography'.
To make things that little bit easier, lifestyle sessions take place in the familiar surroundings of your own home rather than a cold studio, in a comfortable room with good natural light, whether that be your family room, nursery or master bedroom (or all three!)
You don't need to worry about your home being picture perfect either, I can come and move clutter as required and you'd be amazed what we can achieve even in the smallest (and darkest) of spaces. The session below was a one bedroom unit but by positioning the couple in front of the window we were able to make the most of the space. I want your lifestyle newborn session to be as relaxed and enjoyable as possible, the last thing you need to be worrying about is cleaning!
My sessions are all about highlighting the beautiful connection between you and your new baby and capturing this amazing once-in-a-lifetime moment so that you can treasure it for years to come.
