The Gray Lab Corvallis Newborn Session

Lifestyle newborn session at The Gray Lab studio in Corvallis Oregon

This lifestyle newborn session at The Gray Lab in Corvallis, Oregon was warm, fun, and full of so many tender moments. The Gray Lab is my number one studio rental option when in home or outdoor photos are not an option. This is a natural light studio with pristine white walls. The Gray Lab also has rotating floral installments and beautiful props. This minimal setting creates a great environment for family, maternity, and newborn photos.

Studio lifestyle newborn photos

If you know me, you know I have such a big love for lifestyle newborn photos. I love telling a families story as it is at this time. The raw and intimate moments are about connection over perfect poses. Studio newborn session have a reputation of being heavily posed, extremely long, with an emphasis on baby sleeping. But this newborn session at The Gray Lab in Corvallis helps debunk that myth.

My top 4 reasons for newborn photos at The Gray Lab:

  1. Lighting – The Gray Lab in Corvallis has amazing natural light and pristine white walls that help defuse light. As a lifestyle photographer, natural light is my preferred form of lighting. It also casts natural shadows and aligns with my true-to-life ascetic.
  2. In home sessions are not always an option – While the majority of lifestyle newborn sessions take place in a families home, sometimes this isn’t an option. Perhaps a family has roommates, lives with other family, or doesn’t have great lighting at home. These are all reason that would make scheduling a studio session a great idea.
  3. Weather – Oregon weather can be unpredictable and cause scheduling conflicts. To eliminate some of the stress of planning your session around the weather, a studio session is highly recommended. This is especially true for lifestyle newborn sessions during the cold and rainy months.
  4. Fun change of scenery – Sometimes it’s just fun to switch up the scenery for family and newborn photos. The Gray Lab has a variety of backdrops within the one-room studio. This provides numerous fun scenes without having to move from room to room or walk to multiple locations. You also don’t have to worry about the hassle of making sure your home is clean. Or even worse, the kids getting dirty outdoors. You just show up and we let the fun begin
