Newborn portraiture by AluraWayne Photography captures the new relationship between your new family dynamic in a lifestyle setting. Sessions can take place in your home, or in the hospital/birthing center prior to going home (often called a "Fresh 48" session).
Our newborn sessions are very natural and organic and aim to capture the sweet little details of your new baby and the new relationship you have together! A newborn session is a mixture of posed newborn photos with natural, organic materials (baskets, wraps, and comfy items to nestle baby in) as well as lifestyle photos with mom, dad, and siblings. I bring a few props and wraps along with me to your session in neutral colors, tones and textures. I utilize "baby-led posing", which means baby will only ever be posed in very natural and comfortable wraps and positions. Newborn sessions will typically take place within 10-20 days of baby's birth.
A fresh 48 session will be purely lifestyle based (minimal to no posing) and aim to capture those first sweet moments together in your birthing environment. Fresh 48s are great for parents wanting the birth photography feel or siblings meeting baby for the very first time! Fresh 48 sessions will typically take place within 24-48 hours of baby's birth.
