Studio Lifestyle Sessions
Many new parents love the look and feel of in-home newborn lifestyle photos, but are in the process of moving or just don't have their forever home at the moment. Other new parents may have homes with tricky lighting. For these situations, I recommend using a local studio for your in-home newborn session!
Some photographers have their own studios, and others rent studios based on their clients' needs. I fall into the latter category. I love being able to choose a studio that works best for a particular session and client, and I think this is an advantage for a newborn lifestyle photographer to not be tied to just one space.
When a sweet expecting mama came to me with the desire for some "lifestyle" type photos, but in a studio setting, I got to work finding some studios that would work well for the session. Each studio has a unique vibe. Some studios are in historic buildings, some are in more modern spaces. Some have a simple, clean look, and others are bold and bright. I considered both the vibe of the studio, as well as the location, and found the perfect studio in Westminster for the shoot.
We began the session with lifestyle photos utilizing the bedroom set, and then we used the gorgeous window light and the living room set. You would never be able to tell that this couple wasn't in their very own home for the session. The space was not the focus of the shoot, obviously, but it the homey environment did lead to natural, intimate newborn lifestyle photos.
See for yourself!
