A posed newborn session is quite different from a lifestyle one. Clients always ask me what the difference is and what to expect from each. Well… a lifestyle session takes place in your home with white onesies, neutral colors, and wraps. We use all natural light and the posing is completely natural- in the crib, on the rocking chair, nursery, master bedroom, etc. (See examples here!)
What to expect Newborn Posed session: Takes place in my home studio in midtown at 10am within the first 2-3 weeks. The morning is such a happier time for a newborn and lasts about 2-3 hours depending on how much your little one wants to sleep!
Feedings: I always ask that clients fully feed their little one right before they come to the studio. It is always best to be prepared to feed again. Bringing a bottle of pumped milk, formula, or being ready to breastfeed again is a must. This is almost like a little workout for them.
What to Wear: Neutrals, Neutrals, Neutrals. I LOVE whites and creams for parent and sibling photos. They bring to focus to to faces – which are most important! Bringing your little one in something that doesn’t need to be pulled over his/her head is best. This way, if they are sleeping, we can just unwrap and continue!
Relax: Yes, Relax. You have done more than enough! We will start with a few family photos where you get to snuggle with your little one. We will go through a different props and blanket poses for the remainder of the session! Remember, your little one will never be this little again.
We will set up a ordering appointment about a week after your session. During the appointment, you will view your full gallery and choose between beautiful handmade albums, wooden frames, prints, and canvases!
