Lifestyle baby photography session information
There aren’t too many things you need to prepare for a lifestyle baby photography session in your home.
Your lifestyle baby photography session will be quite natural and organic. We will focus on the wonderful joyous emotions that your family experiences with a new birth. Everything will be set up in a relaxed and natural environment, focusing more on what you are already doing , such as you holding your baby, your baby lying in the cot, their little hands, feet, your partner holding your baby, photos with siblings and the whole family. Your family all together enjoying the first blissful days of your baby’s life.
Your photography session will take approximately 45 minutes to an hour.
Let me know when you are coming home from the hospital, we will then lock in a definite mid week date for your photography session so that your partner and any other children are also home. We try and do your photography session within first couple of weeks (while your partner is on leave).
Due to on-call nature of in hospital baby photography, we ask that you let us know as soon as your baby has arrived or when your doctor schedules your c-section date.
Preparing your House:
Please make sure that your lounge room, nursery and your bedroom are neat and tidy.
Please make sure that you have a very plain bedspread on your bed (white if you can, otherwise plain neutral colours). If possible, have your quilt cover ironed, it looks neater in photographs.
If you were gifted a special blanket/wrap/family heirloom that you would like to have your baby photographed with, we encourage you to have the blanket/wrap for the photography session
Dad & Siblings:
We always encourage dads and any siblings to participate if they are there at the time of the shoot. We keep any sibling interaction organic and allow them to have photos with the new baby in their own space, and on their terms. So it’s a pleasant and exciting experience for your older child.
PS have sultanas on stand by for this.
What to wear:
I would suggest something fairly plain – like a neutral top/t-shirt/jumper and jeans or leggings that you will be comfortable in. Wear something you would love to be photographed in.
