What I really love about newborn sessions, is that I get to utilize both posed and lifestyle photography styles within a session. Lifestyle photography is a perfect way to showcase connection and the personal relationships within a family. Bringing a baby into the world is such a life changing event, I especially love utilizing lifestyle photography as a way to capture this new relationship and amazing addition to their family! When mom contacted me, she was originally interested in a lifestyle session, but later decided she also wanted to take some posed newborn photos with blankets and props. She really liked the idea of also having photos traditional posed photos of Blaire, using ivory, cream, blush pink and mint color accents. So, once baby Blaire arrived, we settled on the final details for her session and planned set ups for the posed photos.
Their home was beautifully decorated for the fall season, with perfect fall themed decor and accents to compliment this fall baby's newborn session. We started with family photos in their living room before moving up to the nursery. Dad worked really hard on creating a shiplap wall in the nursery. A beautiful accent wall for such a gorgeous baby nursery! They included delicate, floral designs in the nursery for a perfect room that Blaire can spend her childhood!
For her posed newborn photos, we selected delicate and feminine details to include in the set ups. Blaire preferred to be wrapped or covered, so I used wraps to accent the backdrop blanket and headband choices Mom made for the sets. We started with a mint fur blanket, then moved on to a purple wrap with floral headband and finished with a white lace backdrop, pink wrap and delicate pink floral tieback headband.
I feel very lucky to be able to capture newborn photos for families because babies change so much, so quickly that even just weeks or months later, these sweet babes look totally different! When I follow up with parents and they look back on their newborn photos, they always comment on how little their little one was at the time of their newborn session or just how much they've changed since that time. And this is why it's so important to schedule a newborn session because they are only this tiny for such a short period of time!
