Baby Perkins In Home Newborn Lifestyle Photographer
February 5, 2021 Photography
Brittany's family was so sweet. They had a wall of giant windows that provided us with amazing lighting. I loved meeting her cute toddler son and new baby daughter. Newborns just bring such love and happiness into the home and I can always feel.
I love photographing Newborns! I like to do them as in-home lifestyle newborn sessions. Let me explain what a lifestyle newborn session is! If you have well lit areas with natural light (big windows and not in a basement) then I will come to your house and photograph your family and new baby in the comfort of your home. What if you don't have a well-lit house? I would recommend doing them in a studio for an additional fee. Studios all over Utah have beds and couches to use, with huge windows so the lighting is amazing! Some even have baby beds and cute blankets to use.
Here are some tips to make your experience better:
1. Baby should be fed right before the session starts and fully burped, so that she will be as comfortable as possible during the shoot.
2. Gently wipe away any eye boogers or flaky skin with a wet, warm washcloth.

With lifestyle sessions, the posing is limited, which explains the name! It's supposed to be you and your family in your natural lifestyle. I do like to do posed shots on the bed or couch, but also love candid shots looking at and holding baby. The posing for baby is limited, too. I mostly swaddle and lay them on a blanket. Its pretty rare for a lifestyle session to have extensive posing like you would find in a newborn studio. If you want all those super cute bum-in-air, lots of props, head on hands poses, I would highly recommend finding a skilled newborn photographer! Safety of your newborn is of the utmost importance and finding someone who knows how to be SAFE is incredibly important.
