Capturing Timeless Moments: Choosing the Perfect Newborn Photography Session:

Bringing a newborn into the world is a magical, yet, fleeting moment that deserves to be frozen in time by a skilled photographer. As you begin this journey a crucial decision awaits you – selecting the right type of newborn photography session. At Riley Portraits and Weddings, we understand the importance of making this choice, and we're here to guide you through the options: the Lifestyle Session and the Studio Session.


The Lifestyle Session: Cherishing Family Bonds


The Lifestyle Session is a heartfelt celebration of your growing family. It places a strong emphasis on the family unit as a whole, seamlessly integrating your precious new addition into the warmth of your home. Here's why it might be the

perfect fit for you:



  • In-Home Comfort: The session takes place in the cozy confines of your own home, providing a familiar and relaxed environment.

  • Inclusion of Fur Babies: Your four-legged family members are more than welcome, adding an extra layer of charm to your images.

  • Toddler-Friendly: Perfect for families with lively toddlers, the Lifestyle Session accommodates their energy and captures authentic family moments.

  • Flexible Scheduling: Sessions can be scheduled between 7 days and up to 3 months or older, allowing for greater flexibility in planning.

  • Time-Efficient: With sessions lasting up to 90 minutes, the Lifestyle Session beautifully captures the essence of your family in a concise timeframe.





The Studio Session: Showcasing Baby's Individuality


On the other hand, the Studio Session is tailored to highlight the unique features and charm of your newborn. Here's what sets it apart:

  • Individual Focus: This session places the spotlight squarely on your baby, capturing their individuality in a variety of carefully curated setups.

  • Prop Extravaganza: With an array of props, décor, and wrap options, the Studio Session allows for creative and artistic compositions.

  • Ideal Timing: Best scheduled between 7-14 days after birth, ensuring maximum flexibility and the opportunity for those adorable, sleepy solo portraits.

  • Enhanced Editing: The Studio Session includes deeper edits for creamier skin tones, resulting in polished and refined final images.

  • Aesthetic Versatility: Perfect for those who may not love their home aesthetic, the Studio Session offers a controlled and versatile backdrop.




Letting Baby Lead the Way

No matter which session type you choose, both are baby-led experiences. We understand the importance of allowing your little one to dictate the pace, ensuring comfort and natural expressions. From feeding times to diaper changes, we let your baby's cues guide us through the session.

At Riley Portraits and Weddings, we recognize the significance of this special time in your life. Whether you opt for the warm embrace of the Lifestyle Session or the artistic precision of the Studio Session, our goal is to capture the essence of your growing family in a way that feels authentic and timeless.

Book your newborn session today and let us be a part of your journey in creating memories that last a lifetime.
