Why I don’t pose newborns | Newborn Lifestyle Session

I’m just gonna come out and say it.

I do not pose newborns.

I believe that babies are freakin’ perfect just as they are …. so when I photograph newborn sessions, I leave your precious little one to just be.

I won’t be putting your baby in a basket. I won’t be pretending your baby is holding their head up. And I won’t be moving them into unnatural poses while they sleep.

I want your photos to feel like your baby. I want to capture those moments in between. The way they curl their hands as they fall asleep. Or how they stretch their arms and legs out when they are up and looking at the camera.

Because when I capture those moments, my clients tell me — that is exactly what they did at every ultrasound.

And isn’t that what you want? Images of your baby that reflect them their personality.

I document the truest, most authentic version of your little one. No props. Just your baby and the immense love you have for him or her.

PRO TIP : Dreaming of perfect sleeping newborn photos. Scheduled your session within 10 days of your little one being born. If you have an older newborn, don’t fret. We will still get beautiful photos of them, they will just be more alert and aware.
