Lifestyle Newborn sessions are done in the comfort of your own home. This makes things easier for the new parents and the baby PLUS I am able to get detail pictures of anything meaningful for the baby (blanket, nursery, family heirlooms, etc). It's a great way to capture the delicate, raw, defining and totally life changing moments of having a newborn.
I capture the newborn alone, with any siblings, with the parents/guardians, with each parent/guardian individually, & everyone as a family. Typically these are taken when the baby is 8-10 days. Ideally, I would suggest having these done at least within the first month. The goal is a sleepy and easily posed cutie pie!
