2 HOUR LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY IN YOUR HOME

ALL-INCLUSIVE PACKAGE $795

70+ IMAGES ON USB

It is such an exciting time in your life bringing your new baby home from the hospital. You have prepared for his or her arrival, decorated a nursery, bought new toys, a cot and new clothes. My new Perth Lifestyle Newborn Photography package is documenting this journey for you. Consequently, I come to your home and photograph your family in a relaxed, casual and natural style. My aim is to capture your excitement, joy and emotion of finally having your baby home.

Although it is wonderful to capture your newborn baby in the first couple of weeks, this style of photography doesn’t necessarily require a strict timeframe. If your baby is already a little bit older, he or she may already focus on your face, listen to your voice and perhaps even starting to smile. For the purpose of this style of photography, any stage is lovely to capture, as it’s documenting the change your baby has brought to your lives.

The Big Plus of Lifestyle Photography

The advantage of a lifestyle newborn photography session is that I will come to you, so you don’t have to worry about driving to my studio with a new baby. This may be especially reassuring if you’ve had a difficult birth, a c-section or if you also have an older toddler who you’d need to get ready as well.

Did I mention pets? I have a strict “no pets” policy for my studio, however, this, of course, doesn’t apply to your home. If your fur baby was the first baby in your home and is part of the family, I’d love to capture those images too.

The other big plus is that Lifestyle Photography is not staged or posed. My aim is to capture all of you as natural as possible with your baby with no (or very little) guidance. You don’t need to smile to the camera or say “cheese” although I would like you to smile at each other and at your baby. All you need to do is enjoy your gorgeous family and let me do the shooting.

How to prepare for a Lifestyle Newborn Shoot?

I will mainly photograph areas of your house where you are usually spending most of your time as a family, so this could your living room or it may be your master bedroom. You could prepare for the session by decluttering these areas a little so that you can enjoy the resulting images afterwards. However, do not worry too much about having everything perfect. Lifestyle Photography is all about capturing your beautiful chaos that goes with having a new baby. I have been there, done that, so I fully understand what it’s like.

What to wear?

Baby

Personally, I love pure white on babies so my usual suggestion is a plain, white onesie but of course, you can dress baby in anything that is important to you that you would like photographed. I will bring swaddles but if you have any you love please have them out and the same goes for blankets.  Additionally, I will always bring along a couple of white outfits, hats and headbands so that you have a bit of a choice just in case you want to change things up.

Mum

Although lifestyle photography is a natural setting, I don’t really want to see you in your Spongebob pyjamas. 😉Consequently, you need to find comfortable outfits that don’t look too formal and unlike you in your own home. My suggestion for mums is to wear a neutral coloured camisole or t-shirt for skin-on-skin images. Anything white, grey, beige photographs beautifully against your baby’s skin. However, if you are worried about upper arms, throw on a little cardigan, shawl or blouse to create a soft look. Alternatively, maxi dresses work really well if you have one. Try to avoid tight clothing besides camisoles/t-shirts.

Dad

In my opinion, Jeans and light coloured/white t-shirts work best. I know we wear shorts in Australia, but perhaps for this occasion, we could make an exception and wear long trousers i.e. jeans or chinos.

Siblings

Strong colours such as dark pinks, greens or blues will result in a colour cast on baby’s skin. Consequently, please choose some plain, light coloured clothing for the siblings. Also, please avoid large brand names or printed cartoon characters on t-shirts for kids. 

How long will the session take?

I estimate to spend a couple of hours with your family but this timeframe is flexible.  After all, it all depends on baby’s feeding and settling. If older siblings are involved, then this may take a little longer as well.

What kind of photographs will be taken?

Parents Bed

  • Several family portraits relaxing on the bed
  • Individual shots of baby
  • Baby and siblings (if applicable)

Nursery

  • Baby in cot
  • General decor
  • If requested, mum feeding baby

If applicable, other possibilities or activities could include

  • photographs with the family pet
  • older brother or sister helping to bath baby
  • portraits of older brother or sister on their own

Post Production of Images

Believe me, I will take lots of photographs! My first job of post-production is sorting out the keepers and I will then professionally edit all of the selected images. I’ll crop, adjust and perhaps take out a bit of grain and sharpen. Some images will be supplied in b&w while others can stay in colour as it just depends on which look is more suitable for the image. You will receive all images as high-resolution files on a USB stick as well as low-resolution files optimised for sharing on social media.

Maternity Session

You can add a maternity session to the “Perth Lifestyle Newborn Photography” for an additional $100. 10 images will be added to your USB from that session.

We were so lucky to have Karin take pictures of my pregnancy and of our beautiful baby girl. We have received lots of wonderful comments on the images and will cherish the pictures. The whole experience was wonderful, she made us feel at ease throughout both sessions. I would highly recommend her!

We couldn't have asked for more! Karin did such an amazing job with our baby. Our little one didn't want to settle, but Karin was patient and calming and we ended up with incredible results. Karin also accommodated our special requests and incorporated a quilt that was made for us in the shoot and also photographed our baby with my mother who was over visiting from the states. Could not recommend her highly enough. Looking forward to booking our one year cake smash session with her when the time comes!

Would definitely recommend KS Photography to all our family and friends without hesitation. Karin is not only an amazing and talented photographer, she is also a wonderful person to work with. She also has a gift with babies, our little Kiana was so at peace with her which made the experience that much better. We were beyond impressed with our maternity and newborn photos which we will treasure forever. Thank you again Karin, it was an absolute pleasure with you and look forward to working with you again in the near future.

I absolutely love KS Photography! If you are looking around for a photographer I highly recommend that you use Karin - you will not be disappointed! I have used Karin for both my kids newborns photos and will definitely be using her again when baby #3 arrives next year. We also just recently had a family photoshoot done and have just loved every single photo she has taken! We have her photos hanging up in pretty much every room in our house! I can't wait to look back at all the photos when the kids have grown up ???? perfect memory keepsakes ????
