Introducing lifestyle newborn sessions.....

I am now offering an alternative to the posed newborn sessions in studio. These sessions are perfect if you want a more natural feel to your newborn images and would prefer your session to take place in the comfort of your own home.

What is a lifestyle newborn session?

These at home sessions are all about capturing the family connection and love that is present at the time of a new baby joining your family. During the lifestyle session I will capture special moments with your family, even pets can get involved too!

If your new baby has siblings it may be a good idea to have a friend or family member available on the day to help with the smooth running of the session. This also allows time for mum and dad to have photos too and give time photos of the baby alone.

We would try to time the session so that babies photos are done when the baby is sleepiest. Your baby will be swaddled or wearing a simple white onesie and posed how you would find them naturally.

Where will we shoot?

The lifestyle newborn session will take place in your home, we are likely to work in the nursery, master bedroom and living room. You don't need to worry about your home being tidy you have just had a baby!

I will quickly move things around where I need to shoot and put everything back afterwards. It may even be necessary for me to move furniture around a little but this is just to make best use of the light in your home.

The only thing you need to do is make sure your curtains/blinds etc are open to give as much light as possible and have a white or neutral/plain duvet cover on your bed.

How can we get the most from the session?

A lifestyle session takes around 1-2 hours. Newborns are unpredictable but this session is all about capturing natural, everyday moments. It would be best to schedule your session at a time when your newborn is sleepiest and to give a feed just before the start of the session to try and make sure your baby is sleepy and content.

When dressing for the session I recommend that you wear plain, neutral clothing with no logos or strong patterns. This applies to parents and siblings. Natural tones work beautifully and I can offer help on how to coordinate your outfits for the best results from the session.

If this sounds like the perfect session for your family to document this amazing life event then contact us to book your session now at

Bye for now, V xxx
