Lifestyle Newborn Pictures
Many of my clients looking for a Boston newborn photographer contact me because they have come across my lifestyle newborn shoots. A lifestyle newborn session in your home is the perfect way to capture the most precious memories of your new baby in a relaxed way. This type of session is a great way to highlight a beautiful nursery or to include siblings or special pets. During these lifestyle sessions I use gentle and relaxed posing, which allows for natural connection and capturing authentic interactions with your new baby. Deirdre and Seth had the ideal space for this kind of session. This is because they had plenty of natural light coming in, and simple beautiful decorative touches throughout their home.
Top Questions for a Boston Newborn Photographer
As a newborn photographer for the last 5 years, I get questions alllll the time! If you have stumbled upon my blog, you most likely are hoping to plan your own newborn shoot. I would love to share with you some of my most frequently asked newborn questions. I will do my best to answer them all!
Does the price of our session include digital images?
Yes. After your session, I will edit your images in my signature light and natural style. You will receive a link to a beautiful online gallery of your images. These images are all in high resolution and you may download them at any time.
When should we book our newborn session? Before or after our baby is born?
As an experienced Boston newborn photographer, I am honored to be in quite high demand. Therefore, I always suggest you book a session with me well in advance of your due date. I limit my newborn sessions to only a few due dates per month. However. Because of the nature of newborn sessions being during the daytime hours (vs. in the evening when all of my outdoor sessions typically take place), I do have some wiggle room. You should absolutely reach out to me even if you didn’t schedule your session ahead of time! I can often take a last minute newborn client if the stars align!
Do you travel beyond Boston for sessions?
Yes! I am honored to have clients from all over the state and the east coast reach out to me! I do charge a fee to travel for some locations. You will be able to view all of my travel fees when you go to book your session.
Do you bring anything along with you?
For your newborn session, I will bring along a few items upon request. I will bring a white swaddle should we need it. In addition, I can also bring a beautiful Moses basket if you’d like! I will also bring along a few other newborn tricks of the trade.
What should we (and our baby!) wear for our session?
Soft pastels and light & neutral colors photograph seamlessly with my light and natural photography style. Once you confirm your booking, I will send you a complimentary style guide. This guide will take you through the whole process and help you to coordinate your wardrobe. I want you to look your best so that you can cherish your portraits for a lifetime! For baby, I recommend a white or light colored swaddle. If you need inspiration, simply look at what Deirdre and Seth wore! Perfection1
Will you wrap up my baby and pose him or her?
I will gladly wrap your baby up. I do not overly pose your newborn; instead, I let him or her settle organically to produce the most natural images.
You can head to my website where I answers lots of other questions about newborn sessions!
Make sure that you contact me as soon as possible, to make sure that I have room in my schedule to accommodate your newborn session! In addition, I highly suggest a maternity session before your little one arrives! Everyone ends up loving their maternity pictures! Hope to hear from you soon!
