BENEFITS OF IN HOME NEWBORN SESSIONS | ONEONTA NY NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

When you have just welcomed your first, second, or any number child into the world, you are overwhelmingly in love but also overwhelmed with adjusting to being a new family. It’s an intimate time, and are trying to get through each day and night at a time. I didn’t feel ready to venture out with my little ones for many weeks, and when you have a newborn session in your own home, you’ll never have to leave the front door!

COMFORT

You get to stay in your intimate space where you are most comfortable. You don’t have to stress about getting somewhere on time, whether you’ll be able to squeeze in a feeding before hand, or what to do if there’s a meltdown by big sis or brother out in public. Everyone is more relaxed in your own space. You can snuggle up on the couch as a new family, and relax knowing there will be time for feedings, breaks, and snacks for little ones too.

TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF

When I brought my daughter home from the NICU, I thought I could take her newborn photos and even set up my tripod and timer and get some of my husband and myself with her! I ended up being warn out and incredibly stressed about getting the images perfect and frustrated when they wouldn’t come out how I envisioned them in my head. We ended up hiring a photographer to come to our home and it was relaxed, so enjoyable to spend time together, and I didn’t have to worry about getting the perfect shot! It was completely worth it.

So relax, and let me do the work. You just enjoy your little love and being together.

YOUR HOME IS PART OF YOUR STORY

You spend the most time in your home, it’s walls hold your story. The rocking chair passed down from your grandma, the plants growing beside you, the toys your little ones cherish, the wood floors your husband laid himself. These are the details that will set your pictures apart. And they will hang perfectly on your walls, adding to your story.

WHAT IS A LIFESTYLE FAMILY SESSION LIKE | ONEONTA FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Lifestyle photographers use light and guided poses to enhance family connection.

I am a lifestyle photographer. I use light to enhance emotion, connection and love by guiding your family into connected poses where natural movements can unfold organically. Lifestyle fits somewhere in between documentary photography (no directing or posing) and studio photography. Many people may view lifestyle images and think they are candid moments, but I assure you they have been carefully orchastrated. I will artistically guide you into good light and a connected pose, then ask you to whisper in each others ears, tell each other a story, or even see who can laugh the hardest. Then I will sit back and watch. Watch for connections and so much love that is present everyday. You will spend quality time laughing, and lvoing hard on one another, and I promise it will be fun.

There will be lots of movement

Kids naturally love to explore their surroundings. During a lifestyle family session that is exactly what they’ll be able to do! After we’ve gotten some family interaction shots, there will be time for kids to run, pick flowers, and play together. This movement not only photographs beautifully, but it also gives them a break from guided posed images and keeps them engaged and having fun. It also is a chance for mom and dad to get some images alone, which is so important, and takes the attention off the kiddos for a bit!

There will be lots of laughs and love.

Spending genuine family time together and capturing your family as it is right now, is what a lifestyle family session with me is all about.. You will laugh and love hard. I will capture the beautiful chaos as well as the more tender moments. It is my hope that you leave your session saying, “we had so much fun!” I get that families are busy, so a session with me is time to slow down and spend time laughing, playing, and being surrounded with the ones you love.
