When you start out in newborn photography, the general advice is to pick either studio or lifestyle and focus on that one style. I've never been able to do that. I absolutely love the creative process that goes into studio newborn photography. The designing of the sets is so much fun for me. However, maybe because I started out as a family photographer, I miss the natural interactions that I get when working with families in their own homes. So for me it has always been simple, I'll do both.
Every once in a while, I get to do both for the same family and that is extra fun. Sweet Chloe is such a pretty little baby and her family is as cute as they come. I've included my favorites from both the studio and lifestyle portions of her newborn session.
I am a Charlotte, NC based newborn photographer who offers both studio and lifestyle newborn sessions. Studio newborn sessions are best when babies are under 18 days of age. Lifestyle sessions can take place anytime in the first 3 months but the earlier the better for capturing that sweet newborn look. I limit sessions to two newborns per week and spaces fill up quickly. I offer a FREE studio mini milestone session when booking before the 3rd trimester. Read more about that giveaway here.
