Newborn Model Call for Lifestyle Photos!! | Toronto Newborn Lifestyle Photographer

A couple of days ago, I was contacted by a potential client wanting to do a newborn lifestyle session in her home. I was SOOOOO excited about this!! It made me realize how much I love doing newborn lifestyle sessions! Then this potential client asked for some examples of newborn lifestyle photos I had taken. It was only then that it hit me…I really haven’t done very many. It’s not that I haven’t done lifestyle sessions before – I have done many (though not as many as studio sessions), but I have barely done any newborn lifestyle sessions before. Clients are always coming to me for my studio newborn photography and it makes sense – my studio shots are plastered all over my portfolio and I have a ton of experience doing them! And it’s not that I don’t love studio sessions, but I love lifestyle sessions equally as much. So it’s time I start building my newborn lifestyle session portfolio and for that, I need some willing newborn volunteers!

It’s time for a promotion!!! I’m doing some portfolio building in this particular area and giving away four newborn lifestyle photo sessions for only $200 +tax each!! That’s half of my regular newborn session fee!! Wow, I’ve never felt so much like a telemarketer…. Anyway, you still get 15 images included in the session fee and up to 2.5 hours of shooting time 🙂

If you want to book one of these four spots (actually, three spots, since the first has been taken by the client who originally contacted me), please send an e-mail to laurenlawrencephotography@gmail.com. In the subject line, please put, “Newborn Lifestyle Session Promo”.  Please include your expected due date or date of delivery, your postal code, a photo of your baby’s nursery (or if you haven’t decorated yet, please describe how you plan to decorate and take a photo of the room anyway), a couple of quick snapshots of your home and a current snapshot of your family (taken in the last 6 months). These snapshots do NOT need to be professional photographs!!

This offer may not be used towards sessions that have already been booked. Other terms of this promotion are:

  1. The session must be booked and shot by the end of August, 2014.
  2. Your baby must be under two weeks old at the time of the shoot.
  3. The session must be shot in your own home.
  4. Your home must be within 10km of postal code M4R 1M5
  5. This is NOT a prop/studio type session. The backdrop for your photos will be the backdrop of the baby’s nursery and your home.
  6. You must have a lot of natural available light in your home – big windows, sliding doors…

Just to reiterate one more time – a Lifestyle session is very different from a studio photography session. Almost all of the photos of newborns you see on my website (http://laurenlawrencephotography.com) are studio type shots and not lifestyle shots (hence me trying to portfolio build in the lifestyle category). Lifestyle sessions are much more casual, not as posed, focus on capturing family memories and the true interaction between loved ones in their own home or natural environment. They essentially document real life moments. Although there may be some baby posing done, the focus is on more natural images.

Here are some photos of a lifestyle session I did for a 6 month old little boy…just so you can see that I know what I’m doing 😉

I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet little guy not too long ago. He was such a dream baby…nice and sleepy 🙂 About a month after I did Hudson’s Mommy’s maternity photos, baby Hudson made his appearance in the world … Continue reading

I’m a member of the NAPCP (National Association of Professional Child Photographers)!

This is a cause for celebration! Not to long ago, I was accepted as a member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers (NAPCP). I really haven’t been doing photography for all that long, and for the NAPCP to look at my website, portfolio and work and ultimately decide that I measured up to other amazingly talented photographers out there, was thrilling for me!

The NAPCP has been a great resource for me already. I have been able to learn from other very talented photographers, as well as share my knowledge. I look forward to every new session I have and the chance to see how much I’ve grown with the wealth of info I’ve inherited from this group.

Hiring a NAPCP member to take your family and/or children’s photos, ensures that you are hiring a photographer with a lot of expertise and talent…not to brag or anything 😉 But they do promote their photographers in that light. So it’s pretty awesome! Check out the NAPCP website – http://www.napcp.com/.

Happy Family = Happy Baby (and vice versa)

I photographed little Benji before the holidays and had such a great time with the little guy and his wonderful family! Benji was exactly two weeks old on the day of his shoot. Sometimes as newborn babies approach the two-week … Continue reading

Hush Little Baby, Don’t Say A Word…

No need to sing this little guy to sleep! I photographed newborn Ariyan when he was well over the two-week mark and yet he was one of the easiest babies I’ve had the pleasure of photographing! Ariyan went to sleep … Continue reading

Welcome, Samantha!

Generally speaking, I don’t tend to do newborn photo sessions after the two-week mark. Reason being is that after this point, babies are extremely alert and difficult to soothe. They also usually don’t like being naked after they’ve been introduced … Continue reading
