Congratulations on your new baby! One of the most lasting decisions you'll make as a new parent is how to capture your baby's early days.

There are two main types of newborn photography sessions: studio and lifestyle. Here, I'll discuss some differences that will help you chose which type if session is best for you and your family.

Studio newborn sessions are typically held in a photographer's studio. This allows the photographer to control the lighting and backdrops, which can create beautiful and timeless images. They will also provide a variety of outfits and props to curate a session that works well within the style of your home. This is a great option if you love to create timeless printed art heirlooms of your family.

However, studio sessions need to be captured within the first 6-10 days after baby arrives, and they may not be as comfortable for you to leave your home after giving birth.

Lifestyle newborn photo sessions are held in your home or another location that is meaningful to you. This allows you to capture your baby in their natural environment, which can create more candid and relaxed images. Lifestyle sessions are typically shorter than studio sessions, and they may be more comfortable for you and your baby.

So, how do you decide which type of newborn photography session is right for you? Here are a few factors to consider:

  • Your Vision: Studio sessions are typically more curated while Lifestyle sessions are more emotive.
  • Your personal needs: If you are wanting to stay home during the first couple of weeks after baby comes or if you are okay be out and about more quickly? Do you have someone who can tidy your home before your session, or is that even important to you?
  • Your personal preferences: Do you prefer posed or candid images? Do you want to capture your baby in their natural environment? Or do you want to see them in adorable little outfits and cozy poses?
