Lifestyle newborn sessions are the perfect way to capture your new baby in your home in a relaxed way. I use all natural lighting, so it’s best to have a nice airy room with indirect natural light for this session. This is a great way to get images in your new nursery, with pets, siblings, etc. During these sessions, we will capture your family in a way that you can look back on and remember how you really were. Siblings do great in this situation as well, allowing us to capture authentic moments.
This session is a more laid back session and can be done up to 6 weeks old . This is using your home, your couch, your bed, etc.. as the backdrop. It’s more of a photojournalistic style of photography. No extensive posing (either of the baby or family) is done in-home, just gentle and relaxed direction, which allows for natural connection and interaction to occur. All family members are included.
Some families who love the lifestyle look but do not feel their homes have enough light, will opt for a natural newborn session in the studio. Since my studio is conveniently set up to mimic a cozy home setting, it allows us capture intimate family photos. There is a queen-size bed as well as a wall of windows with sheers to create beautiful images.
I have a very minimalistic style, so the focus is on your sweet baby and not super bright colors or distracting props. I feel that this style is timeless and will look like beautiful art on your walls for years to come. I provide everything needed for the session. I have bonnets, hats, headbands, wraps, blankets, wardrobe for parents and baby. These session are longer than my lifestyle newborn sessions and last about 3 hours. These style of photos are also recommended to be done when baby is 2 weeks and under. Emi takes a limited amount of in-studio newborn sessions per month. All immediate family members are included in these sessions.
These are documentary style sessions that are held within the first 48 hours of your new little one's life. This is such a special and amazing way to capture those precious first few moments that just fly by. These sessions take place at the place of birth, where ever that may be: birth center, hospital, or even in-home. I can arrange to meet you immediately after the baby is born, a few hours later, or even the next day once everyone has had a chance to get a bit more acquainted.
These sessions are more like an extension of birth photography. Fresh 48 is all about capturing the first moments as a new family, documenting siblings' reactions and first meetings, sweet new mommy + daddy cuddles, kisses, and smiles, and those new baby physical features that quickly mature as time flies by.
