FAQ

I. What is lifestyle maternity and newborn photography?

Lifestyle maternity and newborn photography focuses on capturing authentic moments and emotions in a relaxed and natural setting. Instead of posed shots in a studio, these sessions often take place in the comfort of the client's home or another meaningful location, emphasizing the genuine connection and everyday beauty of the family's life.

III. Do you provide props or do we need to bring our own?

While I may have a selection of neutral blankets & swaddles available, the focus of lifestyle photography is on capturing authentic moments rather than staged setups. I encourage clients to incorporate meaningful items or heirlooms into the session to personalize the experience.

V. When can we expect to receive our photos after the session?

I understand the excitement of seeing your photos, and I aim to deliver them as promptly as possible while ensuring they meet my quality standards. Typically, the full gallery will be delivered within 2 weeks for maternity sessions and 4 weeks for newborn sessions, depending on the complexity of editing required.

II. How should we prepare for our lifestyle maternity or newborn session?

Before the session, I recommend considering locations that hold sentimental value or reflect your lifestyle. It's also helpful to plan outfits that are comfortable and reflect your personal style. For newborn sessions, ensuring the baby is well-fed and comfortable can help create a relaxed atmosphere.

IV. How long do lifestyle maternity and newborn sessions typically last?

The duration of sessions can vary depending on various factors such as location, weather, and the baby's temperament. Typically, maternity sessions last around 30 minutes. Newborn sessions take longer, as they often involve breaks for feeding and soothing the baby, lasting anywhere from 1-2 hours.
