Beautiful, un-posed photographs of newborns and older babies. All shot in a natural style in the comfort of your own home, capturing your new family as you really are at this special time.
I photograph brand new and older babies in their own homes around York and Yorkshire! At-home lifestyle newborn and older baby sessions are about the connection and love that family members already have for this new life. I'll capture special moments with each family member and the baby as well as the family all together. If siblings are involved, we usually take care of those photos first so that they can go and play during the rest of the session. I love when family pets can join in too!
There will also be time for photos of the baby alone. With newborns, these are usually done when the baby is sleepiest. I take photos of babies swaddled or undressed and they are placed in a way you'd find them naturally.: usually on the parent’s master bed and in their basket/crib/cot. With older babies, we’ll go with the flow and I’ll photograph them playing, rolling, crawling, walking: whatever stage they are up to. I am happy to incorporate any ideas you might have! Feel free to incorporate any special family quilts, heirlooms or baby blankets that you would like to use in the photos.
I’m bringing a fresh perspective to baby photography in York! These lifestyle images usually have a much more very relaxed, documentary-style vibe compared with the traditional posed baby photographs you may have seen. These images are less about getting the baby in a perfect pose, and more about capturing the baby in a more informal way.as they really are. I also think lifestyle images are unique in that they can really show a special connection between this family – in a way that posed portraits can’t.
And then lifestyle sessions are also all about showing babies and families in their own environment – snuggling on the bed, in the baby’s nursery, and just around different areas of their home. With my lifestyle newborn and baby sessions, I think of it as telling a story of Mum, Dad and other family members with their new baby – in their own home environment.
These shoots usually take place around York but I’m happy to travel further around Yorkshire and the U.K if you like what you see!
Fancy a shoot at home? I’d love to hear from you! Get in touch.
