I'm so glad you asked ! Not to dog on posed/styled newborn photography, it is definitely hard, requires infant safety training (and a healthy dose of patience) and has its place in our industry.
However, it's just not really my thing. I think creating babies is TRULY FREAKING MAGICAL and I'm always honored to be a part of these first few days in a family's life together.
Lifestyle newborn sessions incorporate Mom + Dad's joy (and sometimes exhaustion), the long days prepping the cute nursery prior to baby's arrival, Grandmas that are usually always on-site, and the adorableness of tiny fingers, toes, and silly smiles. Also, Lifestyle Newborn sessions have more flexible scheduling, as poses must be done between 4-10 days. Lifestyle can happen whenever everyone's ready, home from the hospital, and feeling good :)
Esther + George welcomed Jordan to the world, and I have been dying to meet him ever since I captured their Maternity Session a few months back. He's already super stylish and I can't wait to see how he grows !
