Why choose an outdoor lifestyle newborn session? Most people think of a studio or home for newborn sessions, but there are other options! One good thing to come from the pandemic, it is provided me an opportunity to shoot newborns outdoors, and I instantly fell in love! Now that life seems to be moving in a more normal direction, I plan to continue offering these unique sessions! Let’s chat about the details that make an outdoor newborn session a great choice.
This may be my number one reason to book an outdoor newborn session…that golden light! Outdoor newborn sessions are mostly shot at sunset (sometimes sunrise), so we can capture the warm glow you see in my portfolio images. This light brings so much beauty softness to newborn photos that are hard to find shooting indoors. Experiencing a newborn session at sunset is truly such a magical feeling.
If you have been following me for a while, you know that I say I can shoot in any home, no matter the style or light. While this is true, I know some families stress about having a home they want to be photographed in, your living situation changes, or you do not feel like having to clean your house. All of these are great reasons to consider shooting your newborn session outdoors. There is no stress about getting your home all ready for someone to photograph you there. This leads to me the next great thing about an outdoor lifestyle newborns session.
Imagine not having to clean your home, not having to worry about what everyone will wear to the session, and showing up to your newborn session in sweats? When you book an outdoor newborn session with me, that can all come true. I take care of everything!!! After booking, you will receive a session prep guide with a questionnaire that helps me plan for your session; I take of everything from location to styling with feedback from you. This also includes complimentary access to my extensive client closet, so all you have to do is show up and let me take of the rest. I have clothing and accessories for siblings, baby, and mama…we will plan Dad together so you will know exactly what to bring for him. If you don’t see something you want in my closest, we work together to get everything planned out before your session, so it is as stress-free as possible! For example, this family only had to worry about dad’s clothing. Everything else pictured in the blog came from the client closet!
Outdoor lifestyle newborn sessions are great for families who love to be outdoors and who have kids to like to run around. An outdoor session provides a lot more space to explore and play during your newborn session. We can get those quiet, snuggled-up moments every parent wants and fit in time to capture genuine laughter and smiles that are often found when kids can run and play. Plus, the warm temperatures found at sunset during later spring and summer provide the perfect environment for new babies to relax and stay warm.
If you are thinking about booking a newborn session, especially outdoors, I highly recommend booking a few months in advance. I am typically fully booked for sunset sessions about 2-3 months out. Outdoor lifestyle newborn sessions are flexible, like in-home, so we can plan a date after your baby is born. I typically shoot these sessions around two weeks to one month after birth. What other questions do you have about outdoor newborn sessions?
With the option of your home or a gorgeous sunset location, I have you covered by providing a stunning, timeless, and stress-free lifestyle newborn session no matter where we shoot. Let me plan the perfect session for your family
