In-home, lifestyle sessions are a great chance to capture your “everyday life” (but with your hair brushed, and the perfect lighting). We focus on the baby cuddles and the pure joy from parents.
I provide a few wraps (freshly laundered) and a prop/crate for a few “posed” looks, but these sessions are relaxed and stress free. I will also bring a solid white/cream blanket for the onesie shots – we can use an ottoman, couch, bed, even floor if we need to for these. The session will be no longer than an hour (however if you’ve worked with me before you know I usually get everything done closer to the 30 minute mark). We take images in your home (master bed, nursery, living room), and even outside if the weather and location works. We will need adequate space and light for these sessions. Natural window light is the most flattering light for everyone.
Take a moment to look around the room we will be using and grab anything that you wouldn’t like in the background (bright pink waterbottle, neon green towel, dirty dishes… – you get the idea). I also will do my best to grab stuff that I see to move it out of the picture. During newborn sessions it is always a goal to have a sleepy baby with a full tummy, aim to feed the baby 15-30 minutes prior to my arrival. If baby decides they want to be awake and give me great eye contact – I am ALWAYS ok with that – but a good feeding and even a little bath in the morning prior to the session will help calm them and lead to a successful session.
Here are some of my favorite in-home shots from over the years to give you an idea of what we can achieve. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you and your new addition soon!
In-home sessions are $600 and include all images with print rights in an online gallery.
