The investment:  
Newborn Lifestyle Sessions cost $550. This price includes the booking fee, a photographic session up to 1.5 hours in your home, and 40 digital images in colour and their coinciding B&W versions (so, 80 in total).

Note* Your home must be located within the ACT or Queanbeyan regions or an additional travel charge is payable. Before booking, please let me know your suburb and I’ll confirm if it is included in the above quoted session cost, or if an additional travel charge may apply.

The details:
A newborn lifestyle session is held in your home, and lets parents and families look back on this sweet and intimate time with their newborn baby and relive those first snuggles, those itty bitty baby bits, and all the emotion and love of that special time in their lives. It tells a story; it captures a memorable chapter in your life.
  
During this type of session, I do offer gentle guidance and include some formal poses, however I mostly let the session unfold naturally. 

There are several benefits to a Newborn Lifestyle Session:
1. Comfort of home: You are adjusting to a new life and the baby is adapting to its new home; this can be a challenging transition period and you certainly do not need to add any extra stress. A newborn lifestyle session takes place in your environment, where you are most comfortable and relaxed, and so is baby. 
2. Real life: My favourite images evoke emotion or bring you back to a special place and time where you felt love, happiness and joy.
3. Flexible schedule: A newborn session should generally take place within the first 2 weeks after birth, however a lifestyle session is much more flexible. I can document this special time with your baby at 1 week, 3 weeks or even 2 months.
  
What is the difference between a full or mini in-studio Newborn Session and a Newborn Lifestyle Session?
Full or Mini in-studio Newborn Session =  In-studio, sleepy curled up baby on a backdrop, a fair amount of complex editing to the images also occurs.
Lifestyle Newborn Session =  In your home, sleepy or awake baby in your arms, in their cot and in natural positions, very little complex editing occurs, and is more a photojournalistic style.

Additional information:
All sessions have a booking fee of $100 to secure the session booking. This $100 is deducted from the total price of the session which is listed above.
All useable images are provided via an online gallery with additional images (where applicable) charged at $20 each set (a set being a colour and B&W image).
