Cora | Lifestyle Newborn Session | Newborn Photographer
Today on the blog is a lifestyle newborn session! As you may have noticed, I don’t photography newborns that often anymore. I realized my niche is more with couples and families. I LOVE babies, don’t get me wrong, however, those squishy newborn photos weren’t me, and there are lots of talented newborn photographers in our area. However, I do LOVE lifestyle newborn sessions, and I only take on a few each year, especially for past clients!
If you’re unaware of what a lifestyle photography session is, i’ll explain. It’s where I come to your home and capture more natural moments. I’ll capture some posed photos for sure, but I’m there to be more in the background and capture moments as they happen. It’s more organic and real, and I just love how the images come out and tell the story of your family and your home. I always feel these photo sessions are more memorable and more special and I just simply adore them. So, I got away from posed newborn sessions, and now offer these newborn lifestyle sessions instead.
This family are long-time clients of mine. Mom, Shannon, and I went to high school together, so we’ve known each other for many years. I first photographed their family when they had their son. I took his newborn photos and all of the photos that come within that first year of life. I’ve photographed him many times since, but the funny thing is he was most photographic for this session for his new baby sister! He was such a ham, so I got LOTS of photos of sweet Harrison. He’s SUPER excited to be a big brother and is completely obsessed with his new sister. He got to hold her for the very first time for these photos, and it was the sweetest thing in the world. I captured so many sweet moments of Harrison loving on his new baby sister.
Here are some sneak peeks from this session!
