As a fellow mama, I know that the weeks leading up to having your newborn are a complete blur. You’re preparing for baby, but in the midst of all that planning, don’t forget to book a newborn photographer! A newborn session does not have to be a stressful experience. One day, you’ll look at these newborn photos and it will trigger all the sweet memories. In this post, I will be discussing why an in home newborn photography session is the perfect idea for your newborn session!
4 reasons to choose an in home newborn session
The comfort of in home
So, you’ve just had a baby and as a new mama, you’re probably a little worried about facing the world with this new blessing. My favorite part of a lifestyle newborn photography session is that I come to you! I know that for my clients it’s a relief that they don’t have to worry about packing a bag, packing up baby, or driving anywhere. And the convenience of home is a balm when there’s very little rest happening. I do not require any special prep for these session, so there is very little to prep. I want to document this beautiful season just how you are.
Home means something beautiful to each one of us. We all remember our first home. There’s a comfort there and memories of home are always sweet. These images will be unique to your family because your home is being captured. One day, you’re newborn will be older and you’ll be able to share the special place you brought them home to. Here is a favorite article of mine about how photographs in the home boost a child’s sense of worth. Can you imagine how much more that would be with your home in the photos?
Your whole family is invited
Studio sessions are gorgeous, but most of the time the studio is small and adding family into the session is an extra fee. In home newborn sessions offer the space that a studio cannot offer. My newborn sessions are natural, comfortable, and always include family members. My goal is for your newborn session to document your family’s excitement in welcoming your new baby. I want to capture parent, siblings, and even grandparents snuggling on baby!
If you’ve been to my website before, you’ll learn really quick that I believe in the importance of moments over poses. During a newborn session it isn’t any different. When you hold a newborn baby your first instinct is to cuddle, to kiss, and to touch them. Those natural moments are precious and exactly the moments that mean so much. For the majority of a lifestyle session, baby will be in the loving arms of a parent, family member, or sibling.
No unnatural posing
The safety of your newborn is my top priority during your session. My lifestyle approach allows me to capture images of your newborn as well as newborn and family photos without any unnatural posing.
I do professionally wrap baby for you in a newborn wrap from our Client closet and do a series of setups with baby in props, but all posing is baby led. So, if baby decides she isn’t happy in a certain position, we will change it and move on to the next.
