Newborn Session

World, this is Taylor. Taylor, this is the world. It's a crazy place sometimes...it's big and wild, but you don't know that yet. And you don't need to. May you always be surrounded by love and family; protected and safe. All you need to know is that you are loved.

Are you considering a lifestyle newborn session? Here are a few tips to help you decide if it is right for you! 

  • Be ready for unposed and unexpected moments. No, I don't want to take a picture when you are making a crazy face or not paying attention, but I do want to capture a raw authentic and unplanned moment. I may prompt or direct you, and we will even take some pictures with everyone looking and smiling at the camera, but sometimes the unplanned photos are the sweetest.

  • Tiny details- from how you decorate the nursery, to where and how you feed your baby, to little family routines. It's all about making the session personal.

  • Light- lots of good light and window light and a willingness to let light in! Do you have good light? Unsure? Let's take a look and find out!

  • The whole fam! Lifestyle newborn sessions are great for including the whole family. No travel time, comfort of your own home and all your babies get to join in on the fun without much effort.

If that sounds like you, let's talk! These moments are begging to be captured!
