Elizabeth | Lifestyle Newborn Session | Boston, MA Lifestyle Photographer

Lifestyle newborn sessions are some of my favorite to photograph. After being a Massachusetts photographer for almost 9 years, I’ve come to realize how much I love lifestyle photography sessions! They’re more laid back, and allow me to capture moments as they happen. These sessions are pretty stress free and we totally go with the flow. Baby is the boss, and will tell us when she’s ready to have her photo taken. And, we don’t have to worry if baby is asleep or awake, I’ll take photos either way. I think this works so well for newborns, as they can be so unpredictable. They don’t have sleep schedules yet, some newborns cluster feed, and go through all sorts of changes so quickly.

In the past when I was doing more posed newborn photo sessions, I’d be with the family for 4-5 hours sometimes, especially if mom and dad really wanted sleepy newborn photos and baby wasn’t sleeping. Lifestyle photo sessions take the pressure away from that, and it opens it up to a more natural and relaxed photo experience.

I was so happy to meet this family of brand-new clients! It’s always a pleasure being welcomed into a clients home. I love looking around and getting to know the individuals and the family as whole. It helps me create better photos for that day, and for years to come. Little Elizabeth is Sara and Ray’s first human child. I say human, because we all know that our pets are like children, and they adore their little Bernie! I was stoked that Bernie the dog got in a few photos. That’s another reason why I love lifestyle photos in your home. If you have pets, I will try and include them in the family photos!

I’m working on finishing up this photo gallery for this family, so I had to share some of my favorites on my blog! I hope you enjoy these!
