“ “I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle.” ”
(Vincent Van Gogh)

What to Expect with Your Lifestyle Newborn Session with Jen Grace Photography
Congratulations on your precious new arrival! As the joy of parenthood unfolds, you're likely cherishing every fleeting moment and wanting to capture those memories forever. A lifestyle newborn session with Jen Grace Photography is the perfect way to do just that, preserving the raw emotions, genuine connections, and natural beauty of this special time.
But what exactly can you expect from your session? Let's take a peek behind the lens and answer all your questions:
What is a lifestyle newborn session?
Unlike traditional posed newborn photography, our session will focus on capturing authentic moments in your natural environment. Whether it's the comfort of your own home, a sun-drenched park, or a meaningful location close to your heart, my goal is to create a relaxed and intimate atmosphere where your family can simply be yourselves.
What will Jen do during the session?
I'll be your unobtrusive storyteller, documenting your interactions with your newborn without interfering. I'll capture tender feeding moments, playful sibling interactions, and those quiet, contemplative cuddles that melt your heart. My goal is to preserve the genuine emotions and connections present, without forced poses or contrived setups. I understand that Mom's don't always feel their best after giving birth and that is why I focus mostly on the little one, zooming in close and photographing them in your arms. The focus is on your little one.
What should I wear?
Comfort and ease are key! Choose light, neutral tones and soft textures that complement your surroundings. Think cozy knits, flowy dresses, and bare feet. Most importantly, wear something that makes you feel confident and beautiful, as your happiness radiates through the photos.
What about my baby?
There's no need to stress about outfits for your little one. They'll typically be in diapers, swaddled in a simple muslin blanket, or wearing a neutral-colored onesie. I'll work around their natural sleep and feeding cycles, ensuring a calm and enjoyable experience for everyone.
What should I prepare beforehand?
To ensure a smooth session, there are a few things you can do:
- Choose a session date and time that works best for your baby's routine.
- Let me know if you have any specific requests or preferences.
- Clear a comfortable space in your home with good natural light.
- Consider having some props on hand that reflect your family's personality or interests. Does your baby have a special blanket or stuffed animal, perhaps an item that is important to those who may want to purchase prints after the session.
- Most importantly, relax and enjoy this precious time with your loved ones!
What will I receive after the session?
Within two weeks, you'll receive a beautiful online gallery filled with carefully edited images that capture the essence of your session. You'll have the option to download, share, and print these timeless keepsakes.
