Lifestyle sessions are about capturing the connection and love between your family and 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.
Your session will mainly take place in the nursery, master bedroom and living room focusing on those special little moments. I will photograph the whole family, individual moments with each family member and photos of your baby by themselves, usually done when they are sleepiest.
Lifestyle sessions typically take place around one-two weeks of age, but these sessions are also great for older babies up to 8 weeks
You have a choice of a natural posed or unposed lifestyle newborn session.
A $180 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.
Digital photographs and print products are purchased separately.
Digital Image collections start at - $400
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR SHOOT
It is nice to plan out some outfit options for the family before your little ones arrival 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, grays, blushes and other light tones that compliment 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!
