I may be a successful Indianapolis based destination wedding photographer, but since starting my own family a few years ago, I’ve become passionate about newborn photography as well. I can’t wait to tell you more about what lifestyle newborn photography is and how my personal experience with it ignited a passion to serve families with heirloom images as a lifestyle newborn photographer in Indianapolis.
What is lifestyle newborn photography?
A lifestyle newborn photography session will take place at your home. We typically utilize the nursery, master bedroom or living room, but I love to use any space that has beautiful natural light. As a lifestyle newborn photographer in Indianapolis, I like to spend the majority of our session focusing on the connection between you and your baby. I don’t bring props with me and will simply instruct natural poses to help tell the story of this precious newborn time.
I love to embrace all aspects of this season, including rambunctious siblings and the messiness that comes with this newborn phase. If your baby needs a diaper change or a chance to feed, you can take all the time you need to do so, because after all, it’s all about you!
Lifestyle newborn sessions are all about preserving the newborn season in time, because even just a few short weeks after, you’ll be wondering how it went by so quickly. Documenting this time through refined, candid and timeless images is how you can relive these precious days for years to come.
One of the other things I love about lifestyle newborn photography, is there’s very little preparation. As a new mom, I know that it can be exhausting, overwhelming and your body is still healing. Therefore, months before your due date, you’ll have access to my handy Newborn Guide to help you prepare your family’s outfits beforehand, as well as a few simple things you’ll need to do before I arrive. Spoiler alert: it’s not much!
Why did I expand my business and now also love serving families as a lifestyle newborn photographer in Indianapolis?
When my first child, Mia, was born, the pandemic had just begun. We had a lifestyle newborn photographer scheduled, but with the world shutting down just a few weeks before, our session was canceled. When we would have been able to allow a photographer into our home with a mask, she was already 6 months old and the newborn stage had already passed us by.
My husband and I adjusted and took lifestyle newborn photos of each other with Mia when she was just a few weeks old, but it wasn’t the same because we still don’t have any photos during the newborn season of the three of us together.
To this day, I still feel robbed that I didn’t get the lifestyle newborn photography experience I craved as a photographer and first time mom. Yes, we have photos, but it’s not what it would have been. Because I didn’t have that experience, as a lifestyle newborn photographer in Indianapolis, I’m passionate about providing heirloom images that you’ll cherish for generations to come.
