A little pilot in training! How cute is that? As cute and adorable as this little boy of three months with great big dreams.
Pilot in Training! A Lifestyle Baby Session
What is a Lifestyle Baby Session?
It’s when we schedule a session in the confort of your home. It’s when you are so in love with all the little details of your baby’s room that you so carefully selected in anticipation of his arrival. Your hopes and dreams for him (and fashionable home decor taste) will be part of the story of your baby’s session to remember forever!
What do you capture in a Lifestyle Baby Session?
Emotions! Pure, effortlessly genuine, real emotions! You can hug and kiss your baby to your hearts desire! You can enjoy when he smiles back at you, and melt in the moment. You can squeal in delight when he touches the ocean for the very first time! And it all be captured in beautiful photographs that will forever tell him of the love and happiness of having him or her in your lives.
How long is this session?
Like with any newborn sessions, babies take time. They aren’t used to be handled in front of a camera, so we take it easy. I will take as many images as necessary and as long as it takes to make sure we have incredible memorable images of the day so you want to look at them again and again. But usually, Newborn and babies sessions can take from 2 to 3 hours.
Why a pre consultation?
It really helps the parents to relax when they know what is going to happen in the session. After all you are inviting a “stranger” into your home, and although I try not to be a stranger for long, it really really helps to know what to expect. That’s why we have a pre consultation so we can talk and discuss exactly what is going to happen the day of the session. Babies can sense tension and stress, specially in their parents. The more relax we are as adults the more relax and complacent the baby will be.
In the pre consultation we discuss your baby’s routine, when he or she is the happiest, when thy like to take their naps and we schedule around that time. Of course the light is one of the most important factors for great photographs, and I LOVE natural light the best, so making sure the light coming through the windows is at its best is crucial for great images.
We also consult on what to wear, and colors to choose, and decoration style in your home.
This little pilot in training had a perfect nursery for his photographs. You see, his daddy is a pilot himself so it was natural for this family to choose such cute theme for their first baby boy. The approach then is to document and photograph the baby’s room and their family interaction as you would do if you were doing an editorial shoot for a home style magazine. The little things that make his room HIS and the time spent nursing or cuddling or simply loving are so worth capturing in forever photographs. It’s natural, it’s genuine, it’s real. That’s exactly what a “Lifestyle” Baby Session is all about!
And if you conveniently live by the beach, then let’s take advantage of that and photograph your baby’s first dipping into the ocean!
