So many options are available for photography of your new baby. From hospital photos to lifestyle photography to custom styled portraits, the choices are plentiful. So how do you decide what the best option is for your family?
Hospital photos – All hospitals offer photo options of baby during your stay. What to expect … quick photos of your baby in the hospital setting from the designated photography group for your hospital of choice.
Lifestyle portrait photography – This type of photo shoot is performed by a custom photographer (like us), and is performed in your home, within the first weeks after delivery. What to expect … candid, natural (and possibly a few posed) images of baby in their element, utilizing natural light areas of your home. Photos may include: parents with baby, baby, siblings with baby, nursery and decor, etc…
Custom styled newborn portraits – This is our most requested type of portrait session. It includes a custom styled studio photo shoot, with coordinated props and accessories from our vast supply of the finest goodies. We provide all the wardrobe and accessories throughout the session. This type of portrait session includes a longer timeframe, as we are working with keeping baby comfy & sleepy. We produce a large variety of images, including baby, parents and siblings, if desired. Amazing posed parent portraits are captured, as well as sweet sibling images and breath-taking baby photography.
We have many clients that chose to do a few hospital photos and schedule a custom styled newborn portrait session, as they offer completely different types of images. We have also had clients select a lifestyle session for family and siblings and a cusotm style dportrait session just for baby. So, the options are endless.
Our personal favorite is our custom styled portrait sessions, as they provide the opportunity to focus on highlighting the newness of baby, tiny details, fingers, toes, eyelashes, hair, facial features, etc… and they are performed in an organic and artistic way, producing high quality fine art images for your walls, albums and prints.
Now to share a favorite from a recent custom styled newborn portrait session …
One week new and completely snuggled in, this little love slept like a dream throughout his entire custom styled portrait session! We tried a brand new wrap color on him, olive green and he looked amazing in this color … definitely a new favorite! 🙂
