There is no greater privilege than sharing in the joy of others! For their Perry newborn photos, Anna and Andrew opted to do lifestyle photos at the Flat Creek PFA. Luckily, their little bundles Sloane and Gracie were angels the whole time. You can tell these little girls have already brought their parents so much joy!
Lifestyle vs Studio Photos
An alternative to traditional studio newborn photos were babies are wrapped/swaddled and have props and backdrops, a lifestyle photo session reflects more of your natural interactions. Lifestyle photos can be either indoor or outside. They each have their advantages! If you want all the details of your nursery photographed and would prefer not to leave your house, it is an ideal location. If the thought of having everything ready for photos is overwhelming (trust me, I get it!), outdoor photos are the way to go.
For most, finding outfits that coordinate can be a challenge if you don’t know what to look for! If you opt to wear neutral colors, these photograph the best. To add visual interest to your photos, I recommend neutrals in different shades and textures. If you would prefer some color, take your location into consideration. If your background is heavily green, you don’t want to blend in. The name of the game when it comes to family outfits is coordinating, not matching. My #1 tip is for mom to find her outfit first! Since mom’s aren’t usually the ones in front of the camera, take time to find something you love and feel beautiful in. Baltic Born is one of my favorite shops for dresses. If this all sounds like too much, have no fear! When you book your session with me, I can provide you with customized outfit choices if you want to take the guess work out.
What to expect from outdoor photos
Outdoor newborn photos are much like in-home ones! We make sure to get photos of your whole family, as well as of baby with each individual parent. I also provide a Moses basket and a selection of blankets and swaddles for you to pick from for individual portraits of baby. The entire session is very relaxed and joyful as my goal is to capture your radiating love for the new life you’ve welcomed! If you’d like to learn more about my newborn photo sessions, please contact me! I adore photographing babies and it would be an honor to photography yours:)
