Is an outdoor newborn session right for your family?⁠

Is an Outdoor session right for your family?⁠



Outdoor newborn photography: ⁠

✔️⁠An outdoor newborn session is most commonly done within the first two weeks of life and is weather dependent. ⁠


✔️⁠In the United States you can usually get away with a newborn outdoor session between May and September, depending on the year and the temperature. I personally prefer to do sessions outdoors when it is between 70-90 degrees outside, though you may be able to get away with sessions slightly outside of this range when done in very small increments of time to ensure baby’s comfort. ⁠


✔️⁠Outdoor photographers typically utilize many buckets, bowls or crates and bring along a variety of wraps, outfits, headbands or bonnets to add variety to the session. ⁠


✔️⁠Natural light is used and they may or may not use light modifiers like a scrim (A large screen to block out harsh sunlight) or a reflector⁠


✔️⁠Family photos within an outdoor session can take on a lifestyle edge and be more relaxed or be more heavily posed- this will depend greatly on the photographer’s preferred style of shooting and definitely something to ask if you feel strongly one way or the other. ⁠

Tomorrow I’ll give you all the highlights of a combo newborn session!⁠ Want to read about the features of a Lifestyle & Studio session? Go back to yesterday and the day before to see the breakdown.⁠

After waiting 6 years after marriage to have children, I decided to invest in professional photos with Glean and Co. when I got pregnant. I always knew I wanted a special newborn photoshoot, but instantly all her life moments became so important to me when I knew that we were becoming a family. I’ll treasure the album and photos forever and am so grateful to Paige and Glean & Co. for the memories. 

"Make time for the pictures.
Invest in the book. You will never regret seeing your memories stitched together"


"We just absolutely love these photos.

I will never be able to put into words how much we appreciate your talent and capturing our little moment!

Thank you!"


"I am blown away by how amazing these photos are.

I am so excited to see the final album and have already changed my phone and computer screens to these new pictures."
