Newborn sessions are typically in babies first 2-3 weeks. It is best to do the session early as babies are more likely to sleep for us when they are really tiny and brand new. Sessions range from 3-4 hours as we will need to take breaks for feedings and soothing. Parents have the option to have a studio session or a lifestyle session in your own home. Both sessions have their advantages, it is purely preference.
A Studio Newborn Session includes 3 set changes for baby as well as photos with mom and dad and any siblings. The advantages of a studio session is having more props and background options to choose from as well as having a more controlled lighting environment apposed to natural light used in a lifestyle newborn session.
A Lifestyle Newborn Session is done in your own home. This type of session is more of a natural approach to photographing your family and your new little bundle in your own environment. This can be done in baby's nursery, your bedroom, living room, etc. Basically where ever you have the best natural lighting in your home. :)
