Lifestyle Newborn Photography
When choosing a newborn baby session with SCP, you have two choices: a STUDIO photoshooot in my Canton, CT home studio – or – a LIFESTYLE in-home photoshoot in the comfort of your own home. There are many factors to consider when deciding on which session is right for you!
First off, studio sessions are more posed with the complicated froggy and bucket shots. LIFESTYLE sessions are a bit more relaxed in family and sibling posing and typically utilize the natural light of your home as we shoot near windows or in the brightest-lit rooms of your home. If the weather allows, we’ll step outside for a few parent and family images.
Although you don’t need a very LARGE home to host your newborn session with SCP, you will want to de-clutter, make beds and have the nursery in tip-top shape as we typically shoot in the master bedroom (or whatever room has biggest windows!) as well as the nursery. Many families will skip the master bedroom if they’d prefer to have shots on their couches in the main living space. I’ll have you crank up the heat several degrees as I work with the babies, swaddling them with feet and hands peeking out throughout the session. After we finish with the sibling and family images, I’ll then spend the 2nd half of the session working with just baby alone to capture some images of just the baby using the props/furs/outfits I bring. I decide on what to bring based on what preferences you indicate on your Booking Form. Typically, these sessions are fairly neutral with lots of whites, creams, greys, pale blue & pinks and pastels.
Here are a few kind words clients have had to say about their newborn sessions with SCP 🙂
“I cannot say enough about Saren. She is an amazing photographer and an overall sweet person. We had our 4th session with Saren, she did my twins newborn, 6mth, 1.5 yr and now 3 yr sessions. My kids adore her! Her pictures are always amazing and I now have walls filled with my families smiles. Saren is also very good with kids as well. She is so gentle and knows how to get two toddlers to work together to get the best shot. Every session, when I get my galleries I have such a hard time deciding on the ones I want because I want them all!!!! You cannot go wrong in hiring her for your families special moments!! As you can see I keep going back! :)” – Nicole K.
“I fell in love with Saren’s work a few years ago and decided right then and there that when my husband and I were fortunate enough to have a baby of our own that she would be the one to capture these precious moments. Not only did Saren go above and beyond to make my husband our little baby and I comfortable during our newborn session but she captured our emotions right through her lens as if she was listening to our heart tell our story. We are so grateful for these photos and will treasure them forever. Thank you so much Saren, you truly have a very special gift!” – Danielle L
“Saren is amazing! We scheduled a newborn photoshoot for our twin girls and the entire experience deserves 5 stars. Saren handled our girls with such care and ease (to this date, the longest nap they’ve had was during their photoshoot in her studio), and worked quickly and effortlessly when changing the girls’ outfits and photo props. When we received the proofs of our images, I told my husband that I wanted to have 10 more kids, just to schedule more newborn photoshoots with Saren. We are obsessed with her work and cannot wait for the 6-month portrait session!” – Lauren C.
“My husband and I had an absolutely WONDERFUL experience working with Saren! I was so anxious to see how a 6 day old was going to handle a photoshoot and being moved, propped and handled for a few hours. Saren was a complete natural at handling/soothing our little babe and posing him into the most PERFECT positions so she could get the best shots! He was so peaceful for the entire shoot, which lasted almost 3 hours! Saren’s attention to detail in every pose was incredible and I am so grateful for the time she spent to make each shot better than the last!
Our newborn photographs are SO beautiful (I cried when I first saw our gallery) and I am so happy that we will have these memories of our sweet baby to look back on down the road!
Thank you Saren!!” – Gaetana S.
“From beginning to end, the experience with Saren was perfect! Saren understood exactly what I was looking for and made it a reality. She exceeded my expectations and I will absolutely work with her again.
Saren – Thank you for capturing my baby the way you did and for a memorable experience!” – Christine M.
“This is the second time I’ve used Saren Cassotto Photography to capture my newborn photos. She is absolutely amazing and extremely professional. From the moment I arrived to her studio she was helpful. I was 10 days postpartum and having a hard time moving around. Not only was she patient, but she was willing to help me with whatever I needed.
Along with that, it was super helpful knowing that I did not have to worry about finding the perfect outfits because she would be there with elegant outfit choices for my toddler and I. In addition, Saren was able to capture all of the beautiful moments that families hope for, even with the chaos that my 2 year old was causing. I would recommend her to anyone looking to capture life’s greatest moments on camera, and maybe even create some in the process. Saren is simply the best and worth every penny.” – Jacqueline D.
