Lifestyle Newborn Shoots | A New Direction
I have been doing newborn shoots since well, the 12th October 2014 when I did my first set-up. A very basic set-up but one that worked rather well. The bug bit and I started advertising. At first, I did it mostly for free, but then as I got better, I could start charging.
By the middle of 2017 I realised two things. One – Newborn shoots need a studio and loads of props. Second – I could never ask for a newborn shoot to equal the amount of money, time and effort I put into it. Yes, in a city maybe. But not here in Otjiwarongo.
It was then that I started researching lifestyle newborn shoots. I did a few and I loved it. It is more relaxed, more natural and generally more me.
And now, after very careful consideration, I have decided that I will no longer be doing styled newborn shoots. Sorry mommies! From now on newborn shoots will only be in the form of lifestyle shoots where I come to your house, capture bath time, feeding time or just general relax time with the newest addition in the family. You are still welcome to dress-up your little one – especially those little princesses, but I will not be doing any shoots with a whole set-up and props.
Below a gallery of photos from recent lifestyle newborn shoots – in case you are wondering what I am up to now.
