in home lifestyle session baby greyson

So happy to share this in home lifestyle session of baby Greyson and his beautiful family. Lifestyle newborn sessions are quickly becoming a favorite.  The Franks family members were perfect and this session was so relaxed and fun. They got to hang out with baby Greyson and just sit around and snuggle him. He seemed to soak up the attention and was a perfect client on his big debut!

If you think you might be interested in an in home lifestyle session, you can see more here. In home lifestyle sessions are perfect for families not wanting traditional posed newborn photographs. Posed photos typically take place within 10 days which is difficult to schedule for new families. In home lifestyle sessions take place around 3-4 weeks after baby arrives and takes place in your own home, which is often more appealing to many.

If you have any questions about lifestyle newborn sessions or are ready to book, you can email [email protected] . I look forward to hearing from you soon!

8 reasons to book a lifestyle newborn photography session

tulsa lifestyle newborn baby 8 reasons to bookDid you want to schedule a newborn photography session, but missed the deadline?  You’re not too late!  Here are 8 reasons to book a lifestyle newborn photography session. These are perfect for those who want to have newborn photos, but need something more relaxed.

  1. Time to recover from childbirth
  2. Flexibility in scheduling the session (anytime up to a month)
  3. Be comfortable in your own space
  4. EVERYONE gets to be in the pictures
  5. Hey! No posing required…just some easy direction
  6. Your home (including the nursery) makes the perfect backdrop for photos
  7. If you have other children they get a chance to get used to the baby before being in front of the camera
  8. You can include four-legged siblings as well 🙂

This helps those who may have missed their window for traditional newborn baby portraits and I feel this option is so much better. Capturing new families with their little one(s) in their own environment is so special!

what to wear tulsa zink park lifestyle photographySo you are wondering what to wear for family photos this year. It’s spring and time for outdoor pictures to start again. The temperature is finally starting to warm up and everything is in bloom. Hopefully we don’t get any more cold, I am ready for the warmer weather!

I thought I would share my Pinterest board with several outfit ideas for family photo sessions. It’s best to not match, but coordinate. That can be hard to figure out without a little visual help 🙂 Hopefully this board I have put together can help give you ideas and guidance.

model call! lifestyle newborn session

MODEL CALL! Lifestyle Newborn Session Tulsa

I’m searching for a fun and easy-going family to participate in a lifestyle newborn session at their home. The family must live in the Tulsa area, and the baby should be approximately 3-4 weeks old by the date of the session. Model release required. Lifestyle newborn sessions typically take place in the morning around 10 am.

Lifestyle newborn sessions are the perfect way to capture your new baby in your home naturally. This also allows you to get images in your new nursery, with pets & siblings, etc. During these sessions, we will capture your family in a way that you can look back on and remember how you really were.  Siblings do great in this situation as well, allowing us to capture authentic moments.  No posing (either of the baby or family) is done in-home, just some simple direction, which allows for natural connection and interaction to occur.


Please send the following information to [email protected]
-Your baby’s photo (without a hat on, please)
-Your baby’s birthdate (or your due date if baby hasn’t arrived yet)
-Where you live
-Tell me a little about your family
-Tell me a little about your home and include a few cell phone photos of your home taken during morning hours around 10 am (nursery, master bedroom, living room or other room with great natural light).


The session is complimentary and will be 1-2 hours and includes 10 high resolution retouched digital images of your choice. You will be able to view your gallery online, choose your images for download and also have a mobile app gallery of your images. Only families that are not working with another newborn photographer are eligible to apply for the model call session.
