I've been getting requests from families that are interested in having me photograph just their baby. While I do encourage families to get in the frame, I understand that having some photos of just baby is better than no photos at all, so I decided to create a new Simply Baby session!
This session is essentially just the baby portrait portion of a regular lifestyle newborn session. We are dedicating 30-45 minutes to photos of just baby. A feed may take place during this time, which is totally fine, but I do recommend that you feed baby prior to my arrival and then top baby off if he or she needs a little more to relax during the session.
For this little girls session, I started it by swaddling her because she was already sound asleep upon my arrival, so we woke her up to put her outfit on (via the client wardrobe, which clients have access to) and she needed a little help settling back to sleep. Keep in mind, this is a lifestyle session, so its not necessary for your baby to sleep. This little girl was up for most of the session since I wanted to get more photos of her unswaddled for more of a lifestyle look vs. something more traditional/posed. She did really well and we managed to capture these in about 45 minutes total (feeding time included).
Have a look at what this type of session looks like and don't forget to check out previous blog posts to get an idea of what a regular newborn session (with family) looks like!
