Why I shoot Lifestyle Newborn Photography | Round Rock and Austin Newborn Photographer

When I first started, I knew I wanted to shoot Lifestyle Newborn Photography sessions. Don’t get me wrong, posed newborn photography is beautiful when done right, but it just wasn’t for me and it wasn’t my style. I wanted to capture newborns in their onw homes with their parents and siblings.

Lifestyle newborn photography takes a slight different approach. For me, it is all about capturing the love and connections within the family. Photographing your newborn in their nursery, surrounded be their things. Capturing the small details of the crib and changing table.

Having a baby is a huge milestone for parents. Whether is your first baby or your third, having those sweet moments between family members and your new baby in a photo is important. Those natural moments of Mom cuddling her new baby and Dad having that sweet smile for his newborn are two of the many reasons I love lifestyle newborn sessions.

I love to photograph, not only in the nursery, but in the parent’s bedroom as well. Siblings become a bit more relaxed on Mom and Dad’s bed. Everyone can get comfortable, snuggle, and be close. I see sweet kisses, cuddles, and true joy and happiness from the small moments.

Lifestyle newborn sessions are one of my favorite to photograph because of all of the family’s interactions.

That’s why I shoot lifestyle newborn, and that’s why I love it.

My approach to Newborn Photography | Austin and Round Rock Newborn Photographer

Newborns are small bundles of joy! They are tiny, snuggly, and oh so cute!

But newborns can also be stressful for parents (especially first time parents). They require a lot of work with feedings, changings, and tend to have a crazy sleep schedule for awhile.

This is why I take a relaxed approach to shooting lifestyle newborn photography.

When newborns are laid on a bed or in their crib, they tend to do their own thing. They may stretch out with their toes pointed straight up or they might curl up on themselves, falling fast asleep.

Whichever way they decide to pose themselves, I shoot it.

Whether they are sleeping they whole session or wide awake, I capture the moment.

No two newborns are alike. They each have their own personality making each unique.I believe my job is to capture the uniqueness of each newborn I photograph. They are all unique and special in their own way.

I will swaddle them. I’ll let them have their pacifers. I soothe them if they start getting upset, but I capture it all.

All their interactions with Mom and Dad.
The sweet kisses and snuggly moments.
The awestruck older brother and sister.
The tiny smiles.
The frowny faces.

I capture the moments Mom and Dad can look back on and say, “You were so little and special!”

I capture them in that special, short newborn time period that will be over before you know it.

Because that is what newborn photography is all about for me.
