Lifestyle sessions are about capturing the connection and love between your family and your newest little one in a beautiful and natural way. This session is more of a 'documentary' session. I simply come to your house with just my camera and a few wraps. You also have the option of using my studio space for this session.
Lifestyle sessions typically take place around 2 weeks of age, capturing their newborn goodness, but these sessions are also great for older babies too! Capturing all ages is just as amazing as capturing the newborn stage.
A creative session fee is due at the time of booking in order to reserve your session date. After your session, you will receive a private online gallery to view and order from, containing approximately
50 - 60 images, with a mixture of both colour and black and white images.
Session fees begin at $250 collections begin at $650. All packages include high-resolution digital images.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR SHOOT
It is nice to plan out some outfit options for the family before the arrival of your little one as after they have made their appearance, shopping or coordinating outfits can be a bit of a challenge. My personal favourites are simple and neutral colours and tones; textures such as knits and linen always look great too. Whites, creams, greys, blushes and other light tones that complement baby's skin are a great option. Small patterns for girls or mums look beautiful in photos. Try to avoid neon and bold colours and big logos on t-shirts. Mums, you may be tender after bringing your little one into the world, so wearing loose-fitting clothing such as dresses or flowy tops will be most comfortable. Plain t-shirts and trousers/jeans work great for dads.

If you are breastfeeding, please feel free to nurse during the session. I am comfortable and happy to photograph those tender moments, or if you prefer privacy I can step outside of the room if needed.
If you are welcoming a sibling, yay! I love to capture the tender and chaotic moments that are all-things siblings! When a toddler enters the show, all bets are off as to what can happen, but those are some of the best moments of all!
