Posing vs. Lifestyle Newborn Session

"What is the difference between a posed newborn session and a lifestyle newborn session?" is one of the most common questions we are asked. While a posing newborn session and a lifestyle newborn session are similar, they have some major differences! Hopefully this page can help you get a better feel of what they are and can help you decide which type of session is perfect for capturing your new addition!

We also offer split sessions...the best of BOTH worlds! If you can't decide or simply want both, a split session is the package for you!

Split sessions are especially perfect for those with other children! You can have a baby only posing session, then an lifestyle follow up session with the big brothers or sisters!
