An in home newborn session allows parents to look back on this sweet time with your newborn baby and relive those first snuggles, itty bitty baby bits, and all the emotion and love of that special and fleeting time in your life. Shooting these session in your home allow for parents to have all the normal resources, making everyone (including baby) feel more comfortable and relaxed.
The best part? The photos are real life!
Whether it’s your fur baby checking in on their new sibling in the crib, or you rocking baby to sleep in the chair that you will be spending so many sleepless nights in, the session will truly reflect this wonderful (and a little crazy!) time in life.
Make sure you have a solid outfit ready for baby. A white onesie or muslin swaddle is always a great option!
A second outfit is always a great idea! Make sure you have backups on hand for both you and baby. Unexpected blow outs or a big spit up’s happen!
To help with overall baby happiness, start feeding baby about 20 minuted prior to your session time, diaper change and then into their outfit last. Be prepared to do bonus small feedings if baby gets fussy.
Great light is key for an in home newborn session! Natural light pouring through windows makes all the difference.
And always remember, your home does not have to look perfect. It’s your home and it’s supposed to look lived in.
