This handsome newborn boy did so amazing during his session! This was a newborn lifestyle picture session in Marietta, GA. It was captured in the comfort of this little guy’s new home.
Lifestyle newborn sessions are typically an un-posed baby session. I have shot many of these sessions in client’s homes, some outside or at a park. It all depends on the parent’s desires and of course the time of year. The term lifestyle is open to interpretation. I mostly shoot lifestyle sessions with natural light, but do sometimes bounce light off the ceiling to brighten certain rooms in a home.
During this type newborn session, I tend to do a few posed photos with parents and then a few candid style. Candid shots still have guidance from me to give every client the best of themself. Most photos are focused on the baby with a few parents, siblings, and hands or feet photos. I offer an add on to the lifestyle session. I call this add on a posed prop or basket. This is where I bring a simple studio style setup with a prop. I still use natural light close to a window. I instruct the parents to follow the same instructions for every newborn session. For the prop I pose the baby into a natural position that baby seems to want to go into. By adding the prop the parent’s get a little bit of both styles of photos lifestyle and posed. This session pictured did not include a prop, but I do have some on my blog. Check this one out here: Lifestyle Newborn with Prop Added
