Lifestyle Studio Newborn Sessions

Some might consider these sessions a “mini” newborn session, I like to consider them a mighty session with intense candid imagery that will make your eyes get a bit watery… don’t worry, no one will know.

Lifestyle Studio Newborn Sessions are held right in my studio near Hockessin. I’ve spent several years perfecting this nook of the studio to have it ready just for these sessions. If you’re loving the lifestyle vibe, your session can take place here, without worrying about cleaning and organizing your own home to perfection. I’ve done that part for you already!

Lifestyle Studio Newborn Sessions aren’t just for those fresh newborns. They’re perfect for babies who may have just “aged out” of the newborn stage (4 weeks) and milestone babies (showing off tummy time and some giggles, possibly even sitting). You can book these sessions anywhere from newborn through 11 months!

Investment for these sessions is a bit friendlier on the wallet, as we are not using the custom prop designs or meticulously posing the baby in these images. Instead, these sessions focus on mom, dad, and the joy that the new baby has brought on the natural-light studio room set.

Images with mom and dad are included in the session fee + package. In fact, parent poses are required for these sessions! You will receive a Style Guide with tips on what to wear after booking your session. Siblings are welcome to join in the session for an additional fee.

Many consider these sessions a “mini” session simply because they are shorter in length than a posed newborn session. A Lifestyle session usually takes about 30 minutes, and a few additional minutes may be required when including siblings. Even though these sessions are quicker, you will still receive a beautiful gallery of approximately 25 images (30-35 with siblings).

The session fee for a Studio Lifestyle Newborn Session (or older baby session) is $100 and is due at the time of booking. Because of the candid nature of these images, your packages are all-inclusive (which means you will receive the entire digital gallery). Your package is purchased separately, and is due on the day of your session.

Newborn (mom + dad + baby only): Approximately 25 digital images $500

Newborn + siblings (mom + dad + baby + siblings): Approximately 30-35 digital images $650

Occasionally parents aren’t feeling up for photos, and although I highly recommend getting in the photo, I completely understand if you’re not ready! If this is the case, a Lifestyle Session would not be the best suited session for you. Instead, you will want to schedule a Family Newborn Session (posed) and skip the family portraits. Please email me at for further investment information, as these packages differ from the Lifestyle packages.
