The majority of newborn sessions that I do take place in my clients’ homes especially since the start of Covid 19. As much as I love studio, posed images there’s something special of capturing your new baby in their space and your cozy home.
Lifestyle sessions are relaxed and great for capturing that loving connection between you, your tiny baby in your arms and with their siblings. In-home lifestyle sessions are perfect for newborns as well as older babies too. I travel to your home and do a relaxed 1-2 hour lifestyle session in your cozy home.
Do I still help pose baby – YES I do 🙂 What you get is a mix of both posed and candid, documentary style and portrait photography in your own home. This style uses natural light and avoids using props or backdrops. At most, I usually tend to bring with me a flokati rug for some top-down images of baby and their siblings.
Below are my top 5 reasons why you should consider having your newborn session take place in your home.
- Baby lifestyle sessions are more candid and playful vs posed and always hoping baby is asleep. Your toddler can run around more and be playful in their space. If this is your first, then we can focus on all the experiences that new parents go through and document them.
- You don’t need to pack up and get in the car. For an in-home session, the stress gets reduced when you have everything you need at home and I come to you for your session.
- Having a session at home means we can capture your family spending time in the home that you decorated and made cozy for the arrival of your kids.
- I can help you pick out your outfits right there on the spot. This is something I can do with you prior to your session on a separate date, or on your date before we start shooting!
- I can see your home in person and make recommendations for where to hang your prints and products from our session – from the frames going up your staircase to the open spaces above your couches and fireplace.
It is highly recommended to make a tentative booking around your estimated due date, at least 3-4 months in advance of your due date. Once your baby is born, you can contact me and we will arrange a suitable time and day for your session. If your little one has already arrived, don’t worry, you’re not too late! Please contact me as soon as possible and I can try to schedule you in.
