Welcome Baby Sophia – A Lifestyle Newborn Session

One of the latest trends when it comes to capturing your baby’s very first session, is to document them with a lifestyle session. What is this, you ask? It is a session that takes place in the comfort of your home and is a wonderful way to capture real moments in your own beautiful space. It is a great way to capture your baby’s nursery, which you’ve spent countless hours dreaming of your sweet little pea and designing in preparation for their arrival.

If you have pets, this is also a wonderful way to include them in your images. Dogs are often more comfortable in their own space and are more likely to settle down and snuggle up their newest family member a little easier than if you were to bring them into the studio, in a space they are unfamiliar with.

Baby Sophia is perfect!! We had such a wonderful time capturing images of her, and she created lots of memories for us! Especially daddy, when he had to take five for a quick outfit change when she decided make a little bit of a mess on his clean white shirt instead of her diaper! Oh, the memories we make on baby days!

One of the important things we look for when creating a lifestyle session in your home is the use of your windows. In order to create bright, beautiful tones, we look for that amazing light that illuminates your space. We do have other light modifiers, but natural light in your own space is definitely a perk to creating beautiful lifestyle images. Simplicity is also key during this type of session, and we often suggest wearing timeless, simple outfits. Solid white attire photographs beautifully, and will create a timeless foundation for your final images. We also want to avoid too much clutter in the background that might create distractions in your images…remember, the more simple the image, the better, so your images highlight your sweet new baby instead of any other distractions.

We still photograph in our studio, and we love capturing our families as they celebrate their growing family, too! We just want to throw this out there as an alternative in case you think this might fit your personal style a little bit better! We book our newborn sessions in advance, so we suggest booking your session months in advance to ensure you get into the schedule when your sweet bundle of joy makes their grand debut! We have so many beautiful products for your baby’s images, as well as sweet ideas for sets in planning for it, so give our studio a call today for your very own studio consultation to begin planning for your baby’s first session!

We create portrait art from your life story.
