LIFESTYLE NEWBORN SESSION

LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER WORKING IN OSLO AND SURROUNDING AREAS

What is a lifestyle newborn session…

A lifestyle newborn session is a relaxed photography session in which I capture your new born baby, you and your family in the surrounds of your home.  I’ll capture sibling and family photos first so that dad and other little ones may move on to do other things and then I can focus on your newborn baby.  Your pets are welcome in the photos too, they are part of the family right. If dad is happy to be in more photos and involved in the session, consider having a friend or family member around to assist with the other children while we are busy with your newborn. All attempts are made to take photos while baby is sleepy but this isn’t always necessary, there are many gorgeous photo opportunities if your baby does not wish to sleep.  Baby will be captured in positions you’d find him / her in naturally and will be photographed swaddled, clothed and undressed.

When should you book your newborn session…

As soon as you’ve found a photographer that you like and who’s work appeals to you!  Time flies and our diaries get fuller with all the other demands on our lives, so why put it off.  Due to the fact that I am a lifestyle photographer there is no right time to have the session which means you can book it in the 6 – 10 day window when baby is the sleepiest or you can book it for when you feel more settled with baby at home.

Where will your newborn session be held…

The session will take place in the comfort of your home, between the nursery, master bedroom and living room.  If the weather permits and you would like to, we could take some outdoors photos.  Please do not worry about the state of your home, you’ve just had a baby!  All you need to do to prepare is open blinds / curtains to let in as much light as possible.  If needed I will move things out of the area I’ll be shooting in so that your home appears to be spotless in the photos.  I may need to move some furniture to get the best shot so please don’t get a fright.  I’ll put it back 🙂  If you have a neutral colour quilt / duvet cover / comforter for your, please use this on your bed, this makes for great cuddly family photos.

How do I prepare my newborn for the newborn session…

The wonderful thing about a lifestyle newborn photo session is that you don’t have to worry about preparing your baby.  It is a relaxed session in which we work around baby’s needs. If your newborn needs a feed, you can do this feeling relaxed, with no pressure to rush.  I will get your photos for you once baby has everything he / she needs.

What should we wear to our newborn photo session…

Keep it simple, keep it relaxed and keep it comfortable 🙂  I would recommend that you consider neutral and light colours (creams, pastels, whites and greys) as they work best and don’t distract from your baby’s natural beauty.  Consider using jewellery or accessories to add colour to your outfit.  While floral or solid tops as well as textured, such as big knits or lace, do work for your photos, I recommend staying away from logos or writing on clothing (consider how distracting your outfit may be).

What should my baby wear…

Consider dressing baby in plain onesies, swaddle baby if that is what they prefer or if they  are happy in their diaper only, we’ll work with that too.

What are your thoughts when it comes to props and posing…

The style of newborn photography that I specialise in is lifestyle sessions. This means that I am more focused on capturing the relationship between your new baby and your family, siblings and parents.  Individual photographs of your baby are also a priority for me, I will capture all of your baby’s little details, those little fingers and toes that grow all too fast. If you have anything that is particularly memorable, please make sure you have it nearby to include in the photos. I am happy to incorporate any ideas you might have!

How long will your newborn session take…

Depending on your baby, your session may take between 2 – 2.5 hours.  In these sessions, your newborn is in charge of our time.  You will have enough time for feeding and comforting.

What can I do to prepare for the session?

Breath 🙂 Smile 🙂 Trust me 🙂  This is such a special time in your family’s life and I am invested in capturing the emotions of this time.  As they say, don’t sweat the small stuff, I will ensure you get the images you’ll treasure for ever.  Just focus on relaxing and cuddling with your sweet new baby and I will do the rest!

Receiving your images…

You will receive a password protected online gallery that you may choose to share with friends and loved ones if you wish too.  Then all images are uploaded to Dropbox for you to download and backup.

Let’s have some fun now and capture some awesome memories for you 🙂
