Pinehurst Lifestyle Newborn Session

Pinehurst Lifestyle Newborn Session

An in-home newborn session isn’t all the about the baby, but they are certainly the littlest star of the show,

When I arrived at this family of four’s Pinehurst home, I was welcomed by big brother who I photographed a s a newborn not too long ago! He took about a second to warm up to me, but he took a little longer to get close to his sister. The great thing about in-home newborn sessions is that toddlers aren’t taken out of their element. They are comfortable and can be themselves and I can still get “the grandma” shot with everyone looking at the camera. But, I also get candid, sweet moments of your family.

Pinehurst lifestyle newborn sessions are about the connection and love of your family. I’ll capture moments with each member of the family and the baby, as well as, the family all together. I take photos of the baby swaddled (in a blanket you have or I am happy to bring one) or in a onesie and they are posed naturally. I usually use the rooms with the best light – master bedroom, nursery, living or family room.

I will send you some tips before your session (like opening all the blinds/curtains).  When I arrive, I will take a quick look around to find the perfect the light and then we can get started! I always start with sibling and family portraits.  Siblings are usually young and don’t last too long.  I usually do the newborn only portion of the session last. Typically I spend an hour to an hour and a half with your family.

After your session, I edit your portraits (typically 25-35). When they are finished, you join me in my studio to view your portraits and order the collection that is best for you.  Collections range from prints only to wall art to albums.  My most popular collection is an album collection that also includes all the digital images from your session. Albums are perfect because you want all the detail shots (tiny toes, hair swirls), but you don’t want them on your wall.
