What I bring to my newborn photo sessions - South Florida Newborn Photographer

Photographing newborns is probably my favorite type of photography that I do. I absolutely love being able to capture a tiny human’s first weeks of life. And of course, I get to hold those sweet babies!

I also truly enjoy serving my client and being able to provide this service in the comfort of their home.

This is what I bring to my newborn photo sessions which is basically everything!

Hats! Bonnets! Outfits! Oh my!

The photo on the left are all my swaddle wraps. This is what I use to bundle your baby up all snug and warm. The top and bottom photos are layer pieces made from hand-spun wool and lace. They bring beautiful texture and color to your images and babies love how soft they are!

Props! but not overkill. I keep it simple with a cute bed and a couple of buckets. After all, your perfect baby is the star of the image!

Speaking of bean bag! This is my posing station. I bring this bean bag along with the backdrop stand and build it right in your living room. It only takes a couple minutes and I usually employ a super cute older sibling to “help” assemble it. They love it!

Lighting! If there isn’t enough good light in your home I am prepared to create it. I also bring a heater (bottom photo) to keep the space warm for baby. It’s a great tool to keep my babies warm and verry sleepy. A cold newborn is an unsettled and unhappy newborn which will result in images of crying babies, which in my opinion is still super adorable but that’s just me!

That’s it folks! I am fully equipped with everything we need to make your session awesome. I also bring my best asset, ENDLESS PATIENCE. I am very calm and zen and I always make sure my clients are comfortable and don’t feel pressured for time or anything! Your baby will need to eat and get a diaper change at some point during the session and there will always be time for that.

I hope this was helpful if you were curious as to what an on location photographer usually brings to an in home photo session.

At Home Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session Miami Shores, FL

One of the best things about having your newborn’s photos taken at home is you don’t have to worry about packing up your things to go somewhere. I remember not leaving my house for at least 2 weeks until I felt comfortable enough to bring my baby out and about. This family chose my Simple Newborn Session which is a documentary style session without the use of props. I focus on capturing the family as they are with the natural light in their home.

Is your newborn too 'old' for a newborn photography session?

Here I sit on a beautiful Tuesday morning drinking my tea and pondering a question that I often get from so many mommies who are interested in my services:

Is my newborn too old to do a newborn photography session?

In the several years that I have photographed newborns, it never occurred to me that a photographer would actually turn away a mom and her newborn just because her baby was over the so called age limit of two weeks. The whole purpose of a newborn shoot is to capture the little details and to document your baby while they are still so small in those first few weeks.

Although I do understand why some photographers recommend this. For example, newborns under two weeks can easily go into the more sleepy poses, they are more sleepy in general etc. However, In my experience I never had a problem getting some amazing shots of baby both in a sleepy pose and in some awake poses which are equally adorable and mommy always appreciates seeing the awake images.

I understand that taking care of newborn right after giving birth is intense and sometimes the last thing on your mind is booking a photography session. So it’s totally okay to push it off a week or two.

I happily take on baby clients as young as a few days to a few weeks to, heck, even a couple months!

Below are some sweet images of baby Yehuda, who is, wait for it, 5 weeks new!
