What is a lifestyle newborn photography session?
So, your gorgeous baby has finally arrived. And now it’s time for your newborn baby’s first photo shoot. But not everyone is a fan of the styled and posed studio session. In fact, many parents want to have their baby’s first newborn photos in the comfort of their own home. These sessions are called lifestyle newborn photography.
The beauty of these sessions are they’re SO relaxed.
How Long Does a Lifestlye Newborn Session Last?
A typical Lifestyle Newborn Session goes for around an hour in the comfort of your own home. You can even stay in your pyjamas if you want.
And honestly, who doesn’t love pyjama day?
The lifestyle session is basically a ‘day in the life’ of you and your baby.
We’ll take photos of bath time, feeding time, and cuddling on the bed.
There aren’t any props involved and baby stays dressed in whatever cute outfit you choose.
We can incorporate your favourite stuffed toy or take photos of you reading a bedtime story.
And the best part is, these sessions can take place at any age and time of the day because baby doesn’t need to be asleep.
I simply capture cute, adorable moments between you and your baby.
Even your fur baby can join in.
Check out these two lifestyle sessions below. Both are super-cute and taken at two completely different ages.

Things To Ask Your Photographer
Whatever type of photo shoot you choose, be sure you’re choosing a professional photographer who knows how to handle your precious baby safely and with care. There are a few questions you should ask your photographer before you even think about trusting them with your baby.
- Are they vaccinated? Your baby’s health should be a priority to your chosen photographer.
- How long have they been in business?
- Check their Google reviews. This will give you firsthand insight into other people’s experiences.
- Are they insured? Any working professional will have insurance.
- Have they photographed newborns before? Don’t let anyone practice their newborn photography on your baby.
