Freya - Lifestyle Newborn Photography

 

I was lucky enough to meet and photograph this beautiful baby girl, Freya at 8 weeks old, with her loving new parents. The idea of a lifestyle newborn baby photo shoot is to capture and document real-life at home with your new addition. It's such a magical time and one that is truly worth photographing because it flies by in such a haze and before you know it, your little baby is toddling around! 

A newborn lifestyle session usually lasts up to 2 hours and we spend together time moving around the home while I document your connections as a family. Having the session at your home is the perfect place as it's where you spend most of your time with a newborn baby. It is also about capturing those everyday activities such as feeding, cuddles and kisses. It's also important to wear clothes that you would everyday at home with the family, because these sessions are meant to reflect real life. They should be authentic memories of those early days spent with your new baby.

The families that I work with want honest and natural photographs that reflect their personalities and celebrate this tiny human being that they have created. Your lifestyle session is not about posing for the camera, it is all about capturing who you are, and the everyday activities in the life of new parents with the arrival of your baby, in a location that means something to you. 

Freya was an absolute darling during her session and her smile is the cutest little thing I've seen! I loved documenting this time for Faye and Tony. As a first time mother, it really was a time that Faye wanted to cherish and record forever with photographs. Here are just a few of my favourite images from their newborn baby lifestyle photo shoot...
