Mom and Dad really wanted the intimacy that an in-home newborn session provides. As much as they admire the posed newborn photos, what they really wanted was something to document them as a new family together. They loved the candid style of lifestyle photographs that focus on capturing a moment in time in their lives.
Miss Virginia was a real trooper for her session. She was great in the beginning when she was all wrapped up, but once we slowly unwrapped her, she became unsettled. Mom fed her and Dad walked and rocked her, but nothing was making Virginia relax. That’s part of the raw beauty of parenthood and family, so we captured a few real-life photos during that time, too. Finally, I asked them if I could try to soothe her. Then I wrapped her just enough to give her a bit of security, and she drifted right off to sleep.
Documenting Real Life Moments through Photography
I love this real-life collection so much, and we were able to create the photographs Mom and Dad really wanted. What makes at home, lifestyle photos distinctly different from in-studio sessions is that they convey authentic memories and real life. It portrays some of the quirks and sweet imperfections, but it also showcases the deep love and strong family bonds. I always enjoy the challenge of lifestyle sessions.
Truly, I don’t think one style is better than the other. I love them both! They’re both unique and special depending on what the family is going for or even how they intend to use the photos. I’m excited to share this session with you so you can see the beauty in both as I do.
Whether you’re looking for a classic in-studio newborn session or a real-life in-home session, I would love to help you document those precious family milestones and stages.
