As an Uptown Charlotte Newborn Photographer, lighting is essential for the perfect lifestyle newborn session. This uptown apartment was the perfect space to play around with it.

This luxurious uptown apartment has amazing floor-to-ceiling windows, therefore, allowing plenty of natural light to come in. Since the master bedroom had these great windows, we were able to have the entire session there. As a result of this beautiful light, the final images were so light airy, and dreamy!

It was an honor to shoot the Rubzin Family as they welcomed their adorable baby boy into their family. His parents were the most natural and kind parents and as a result, their sweet baby boy did amazing. The session reminded me how much I truly enjoy photographing newborns and capturing memories for families to cherish for a lifetime.

The most widespread misconception about lifestyle newborn sessions is that the nursery must be complete.

The reality is this is not the case. With or without a completed nursery, we can still guarantee a variety of photographs for your gallery.  Although a complete nursery is a benefit to booking a lifestyle newborn session over a studio session, all you really need is you, and your sweet newest addition.
