Capturing natural, genuine moments
Honest Story Telling
What to expect
Unlike studio sessions, lifestyle sessions at home are not timed or rushed, and normally last 1-2 hours. If your baby wakes up and cries, or does not sleep at all, or your toddler runs around in his spiderman outfit, then no problems! The documentary approach to welcoming your baby home, is all about capturing these real moments. If your house isn't picture perfect, don't worry, I know what it's like to have just had a baby! This session is about capturing the real connections and love in your family.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT TO A STUDIO SESSION?
A lifestyle session is photographed in a documentary style, so the photos of your baby will be very natural, pure and organic, wrapped in their actual baby blankets, and swaddles. No props, outfits, or posing pods are brought to the session. Your baby will not be squished in to a bowl or basket, but instead photographed naturally in your arms or in their cot. If your baby wakes up and cries, unlike a studio session, we don't stop, I will document as you comfort and cradle your child.
"Thank you so much! The pictures look fantastic and just as how I had imagined...Thanks again and I will definitely be passing your name along to friends"
"Thanks so much Joanna. These photos are absolutely stunning. You did such a great job."
Kind Words &
Beautiful Lifestyle Photography
When I look back through my baby photos, my favourite ones are not the ones taken in a photography studio, but the ones at my family home. Although we moved when I was 2, so I don't have any memories of my first childhood home, I love seeing the crazy 70s decor, the family dog looking so young, my siblings running around un-posed and un-staged. I connect with these photos so much more, than my baby photo shot in front of a plain screen, and this is why I love to offer Lifestyle Newborn Photography. I will provide you with beautiful, creative portraits with the backdrop of your home, your memories. Honest, Real Story Telling.
