I have been photographing this family since they were expecting their first child, over 5 years ago. When I started my photography business, my main focus was posed newborn photography. I still offer this type of newborn photo session. Meanwhile, as the years went by, I started offering Lifestyle Newborn photography as an alternative to the posed sessions and they have also became a huge success!
The main difference between posed and lifestyle newborn photo sessions is that on posed, the focus is a snugly baby as art. The baby on a bean bag or inside a basket with a beautiful background and props. On the contrary, lifestyle newborn photo session is the baby photographed in his own nursery on his crib or being held by the parents.
They are both beautiful and I love photographing both. It is just a matter of client’s preference and how they want the memories of this sweet moment to be photographed.
