Lifestyle Newborn Photography in Southeastern, CT
What is a lifestyle newborn session?
At-home lifestyle newborn sessions are about the connection and love that family members already have for their new addition to the family. During your session, I will capture moments of each family member, the family together, and individuals of the baby. If siblings are involved, I typically capture those images in the beginning of the session. It can be helpful to have another family member or friend at your home to watch the siblings during the rest of the session so Mom and Dad can be in the rest of the images with the baby. The individual shots of the baby are captured when they're the sleepiest. I capture images of your baby swaddled or undressed and they are posed in a natural way.
Where will we shoot?
This session takes place in the client's home, preferably in the nursery, master bedroom, and living room. Don't stress over your house being a mess-You just had a baby! All you need to do to prepare is open the blinds/curtains to allow as much light in as possible. The only thing I request is to have your bed made with a neutral quilt/comforter on top.
How can I make sure my baby is comfortable and cooperative during the session?
Newborns are unpredictable and this session is all about them. Please don't stress over your baby crying or needing to eat during the shoot-newborn sessions are purposely longer to allow for plenty of breaks, feedings, diaper/outfit changes. I recommend feeding your baby right before the session so they're sleepy and content.
How long are these sessions?
A typical lifestyle newborn session takes 2-2.5 hours. When it comes to newborn sessions, the baby is in charge, so we allow enough time for feeding, and diaper change breaks.
