I really enjoy in home newborn sessions. They are intimate and calm. I also love being able photograph families in their own space, it s a way to showcase their personality and in this couple’s case, their awesome decorating skills. Baby Claire is happiest in her mama’s arms and did not like being unwrapped from the little cocoon-like wrap I had her in. Since she was awake for a time, I took advantage and got some images of her awake. She has beautiful little eyes!
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.
We woke up extra early for this sunrise beach session and boy was it worth it! The light was just beautiful. Luckily it was cloudy so we weren’t getting completely scorched by the rising sun. I just loved the simplicity of this session, just the love of this family and the vast ocean.
Hello all, so this is a late post. I photographed this session right before Christmas with this sweet family. They welcomed a healthy baby boy to their family. What better gift for the holidays than a new baby?! His big sis was so great with him, I barely had to tell her to do anything, she naturally interacted with him and was soo sweet. What I love about doing newborn sessions at my clients home is that we can get such a variety of shots indoors and outdoors. We can go from the living room to the nursery and then take a walk outside for some scenic images and fresh air. Enjoy!
Professional newborn photos in the comfort of your home
First birthday photo sessions are the best! I love photographing cake smashes, they are so much fun! The great thing about these sessions is I do them in my clients home so they get the studio look without having to go anywhere and the best part is baby can go straight to the bathtub right after he/she gets completely covered in cake!
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!
