Lifestyle newborn session | Edinburgh, Scotland
Let's start with what a lifestyle session is, how it differs from traditional sessions and what you can expect from such a session.
The industry definition of lifestyle photography would probably be something like “unposed portraits”. And that’s essentially what these sessions are like. But there is way more than that. During my Lifestyle session, we’ll spend about an hour together (sometimes longer) and I will capturing the honest reactions and real connections that we so crave to document forever.
The lifestyle session is a natural session inspired by life. Focused on emotions but still in an artistic perspective. Your story shown with my eye, observation and sensitivity. Before the session, you will receive a questionnaire that will allow me to get to know your family a bit better.
To bring out real emotions, real moments, I will give you gentle guidance during the session (but nothing too stiff). You won't have to look at me for a long time - it's a huge advantage especially for dads ;)
THREE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY
1.Mom and Dad hold baby in a lifestyle session
This is my first and essential thing for which I love lifestyle newborn sessions. The newborn baby belongs to the parent's arm. Some of the new parents are uncomfortable with strangers holding their baby, and here's the good news: I don't need to touch your baby at any time during the lifestyle session.
It is you who will hold and kiss your baby. We all know how important the closeness of the child to the parent is, how precious this little moment are, so be prepared for kisses and hugs because there will be a lot of them ;)
2.IT CAN BE DONE IN COMFORT OF YOUR HOME OR AT YOUR FAVOURITE LOCATION
Newborn lifestyle sessions have something magical about them, because the very appearance of a little man completely changes the family's current life, and if you add a huge dose of love and happiness that he brings home, the magic of the session is guaranteed.
IN-HOME NEWBORN SESSIONS - The sessions at home are very relaxing, we have all the time we need, no rush. You can change or feed your baby at any time. You have everything you need. It is at home that you feel cozy and peaceful and this is what your photos will be like.
OUTDOOR NEWBORN SESSIONS - I love photos in nature, if you feel well enough and the weather outside is good , why not take some fresh air. I love to combine home sessions with a few photos from a nearby park or your garden
3.There is no set time to do lifestyle newborn session
With lifestyle photography there is no rush really. I can photograph babies at any age because I am not posing them. We can meet in the first 48 hours FRESH 48 Gallery of your baby life or it can wait till your baby is more settle NEWBORN GALLERY
I am happy to do a newborn lifestyle shoot at any age. That being said, they do change and grow very quickly in the first weeks of life. I recommend trying to get the shoot scheduled before the baby is three months old. But remember there is no rush at all. All babies are super cute :)
