Question- What is one of your favorite parts about about a lifestyle newborn session?
Answer- 1, Getting to chat with my clients & 2, being able to freeze this moment in time for families! When I am not photographing families, I am at home editing, which I actually don't mind, but it is nice to chat with new (& seasoned) parents about anything and everything including how things are going as a new parent! The new parent topic is nice because I get to connect and remind myself that I am not the first parent to really struggle through sleep deprivation and all of the ups and downs of being a new parent.
Also, babies are forever changing and once you've got things down your baby changes- in every way! Being able to freeze this stage for families is so incredibly rewarding especially since it means I get to photograph families together and not just baby alone. Its so important for YOU to be in the photos too!! Trust me, both you and your child will appreciate it. If you don't think you'll be up for it at the hospital after you've had your baby, definitely consider a newborn session when you've had time to sleep more and actually get ready and shower!
