I always feel like I’m going to start off a blog post… Well, it’s been forever.. lol Oh my goodness.
There have been a LOT of changes in my life the past two years. From having a baby to becoming a mom who homeschool’s by day and works by evening etc and now we are moving.
Yep, you heard that right! We are moving in a couple months. Where? Not far so don’t worry. We just found an amazing place that was just too hard to pass up.
Let’s just say… private beach sessions here we come!!!
So, that brings me to this…. Once we are moved I am giving up my beautiful studio space. I have been in photography for almost 10 years and I have always worked very hard to have a studio. My place right now is by far my most gorgeous set up.
Since, I won’t be having a studio like I have now, I am moving my newborn sessions to IN HOME LIFESTYLE NEWBORN…. What a dream it is too!
It is SO much different than studio and I love the change! Normally, I hate change but this is good change!
As a new mom, I know how exhausting it is to have to pack up your brand new baby and other kids in tow and go to a studio! I’d be worried about EVERYTHING.
I’d be worried about how my kids behaved, if they would ruin anything, would they smile for the camera etc.
I have always dreamed of having super relaxed sessions with families. I am not one for a ton of posing. Yes, I will do it but that’s not what I’m drawn to as a photographer.
I want to capture the moment, the mood, the happiness etc with out smiling directly at the camera.
I’ve learned that when going to people’s homes, they can move around freely. The kids can too instead of being cooped up in my studio space with parent’s anxiety over how they will behave.
When I do a studio session I’m happy to get 20 finished images. It can take 3-4 hours because of how hard studio work is. Your baby has to be completely sleeping for my assistant and I to pose baby. And if they aren’t sleeping or if they are fussy you have to wait.
Sometimes, studio is just hard. For everyone.
When I did this session that your about to see, I got to play with the kids, I got to just chat and hang out with mom. When I was photographing mom and baby the kids went into another room to just play. It was by far the most relaxed session I have done in a very long time.
Plus, my studio sessions are $550 with 20 images and I’ve decided to do my lifestyle newborn sessions for $450 and I know for a fact I’ll get more than 20 images. I will still promise 20 but I love over delivering to my clients. ( shhh your not supposed to know that lol)
I am so excited to share with you this session…. I had no idea what this family’s home looked like beforehand and was happily surprised. It turned out that mom homeschools too and we had a lot in common!
Here are a few images to their session and my new LIFESTYLE Session.
