Do I like lifestyle newborn sessions more than posed? Any newborn photographer will tell you that posed newborn portrait sessions are THE BEST if a baby is completely limp noodle zonked out for at least 30 minutes. That’s all it takes really. But when they’re not, which seems to be more common – when they’d rather be held or maybe they’re just not sleepy, lifestyle sessions flow better.
But perhaps the real reason why I enjoy lifestyle newborn sessions more, even when baby is nice a snoozy like Baby Allee was, is because connection portraits light a fire in my heart! I am not a prop person. I am a connection person. I do not force moments, rather capture you and your family as you are. My goal is to capture moments you can look back on and remember how you were at that point in time. Snuggles. Smiles. Hugs. Laughter and tears.
I think the Woods family will look back on these images and do just that.
