Posed Newborn Session v.s Lifestyle Newborn Session

Ciara Murphy Photography

Everyone has different tastes and the same goes for what type of photography you like. Many clients like an abundance of colours and props while some prefer all natural, classic images. I thought I’d take the time to explain the different types of newborn sessions I offer.

Posed NewbornSession

Posed newborn sessions include a variety of props and different backgrounds. This is a more creative type of session and allows clients the freedom to choose what colours and props they prefer. A posed newborn session includes wrapped and nude posing on fabric backdrops with various colours and the use of various props like bowls, buckets and flowers. A posed newborn session takes longer than a lifestyle session as newborns need to be asleep for most of the session so Baby can be happily posed. A family portrait is also included in the newborn session, posing is guided and we aim for a perfected natural look that focuses on your new arrival!

Lifestyle Newborn Session

Lifestyle newborn sessions are more natural, generally all the focus is on the interaction between family. The goal for lifestyle photography is simple posing and simple cle. This type of session can be much quicker than a posed newborn photography session as it doesn’t require baby to be asleep as posing is all natural or in parents arms. Lifestyle photography focuses on cuddly interaction and requires limited posing. Lifestyle photography can be done in studio (as seen below) or at your own home. This type of photography puts the focus solely on baby and family and has no distractions such as props.
