What is Lifestyle Newborn Photography?

So, what is lifestyle newborn photography?

Lifestyle Newborn photography is a genre of photography that mainly aims to capture portraits of people in situations, real-life events or milestones in an artistic manner and the art of the everyday. The primary goal is to tell stories about people’s lives genuinely.

In general, there are two main styles of newborn photography: studio and lifestyle. Lifestyle newborn photography is meant to document your life in a genuine, natural way. Usually, these newborn sessions are done in your home, or nearby. The result is photos in your own space, of your real life, natural moments. Here at Jena Lee Photographs, we specialize in lifestyle newborn photography that perfectly documents everyday life with your new baby.

Four reasons to love lifestyle newborn photography:

Great for anyone nervous in front of the camera

First of all, lifestyle newborn photography is great for anyone who feels nervous in front of the camera. Most people feel a little nervous about being in front of the camera. This is perfectly normal and a lifestyle session is perfect for anyone feeling this way. I will guide you through the entire session. A big part of my job is to balance giving you gentle direction as you need it, while also letting your real moments come up naturally.

Rest assured that even the most camera-shy people find that they can settle into their photo session to create natural portraits. You will likely spend the majority of your photo session staring lovingly at your baby and talking about how cute they are. So if you can handle that, you are ready for photos.

Family, siblings + Pets can be included

If lifestyle newborn photos are all about documenting your real life, then that must include the siblings and pets. A major perk to working in your home is that we can include the whole family.

The comfort of your home

Along with ourselves and our family, your home changes along with you. Over the years, the newborn blankets will fade into toddler toys. Then they will become kids’ items, that eventually become teenager shoes. Right now, your home might not be perfectly styled or finished, but I encourage you to embrace this part of your life anyway. One day you will want to look back on it on your small children in your first home to see how much you have all grown.

Extremely personalized newborn photos

So often, what often feels mundane at the time is what we miss the most later in life. Start to think about what little things you will miss and how we can incorporate them into your photos. For example, maybe it’s the weight of them sleeping on your chest or their nightly bath time routine. What do you want to remember about this part of your life?
