Yay! Your little one is on it’s way (or maybe it’s already here!) and you know you just have to get photos of this special beautiful time! As an Oklahoma City and Norman Newborn Photographer, I want to give some of my top reasons for why I believe at home newborn sessions can be the best choice!
5 reasons to have a newborn session at home
Without much more ado, I’m going to dig into these reasons and how it can benefit you!
you don’t have to travel
This one takes a lot of pressure off. You don’t have to worry if you forgot something for the baby or you. Or if you will need a snack (psstt…you can go get one at any time while I’m there!) You don’t have to worry about getting everyone out the door. You don’t have to worry about shoes or jackets or bottles or having enough outfits for blowouts. Or worry about whether baby will last the whole time or sissy getting carsick on the way over.
the comfort of your home
The thought of getting photographed can be stressful. It can fill your mind with images of how you SHOULD look (is that how you WANT to look?) or how you SHOULD act (is that YOU?) But with being in your own home it can be as causal or dressed up as you want. You don’t have to be dressed up. You can have that cup of coffee and those snuggly clothes. If you want to dress up then go for it! But the choice is yours.
Drink a cup of coffee. Read a book. Snuggle with your pup. Play spot it with your littles.
This is also awesome for especially siblings and the new baby – often little children get nervous and stressed to be in a new environment. When I come to you – they get to be in the place they know. Surrounded by the things they know. The place that makes them feel safe and loved.
your home is part of your story
this is the place you brought your little one home too. This is the place where you likely carried that little one tucked away inside. This home is the starting place of their lives. Whether it’s a small apartment or your settled forever home, this place is part of the story of your lives and makes the best backdrop to tell this chapter of it.
At in home new born sessions, we let the baby lead. Which means going with the flow…baby is cluster feeding? No problem! Big brother melts down. Let’s put on music and dance! We have plenty of time. You have a special outfit you want for baby to wear for a few photos. We can do that no problem! You want Grandma and Grandpa to pop in at the end? We can do that too!
one of a kind
This final of the 5 reasons to have a newborn session at home – Choosing to have your photos done at YOUR home rather than a studio means they can’t be replicated by anyone else. They are uniquely yours. They tell YOUR story. They show the things that mean the most to you!
and a bonus reason – You can include your pets too!
I love having the whole family there for sessions and when you have it at home your pets can be included too! It’s their place and their surroundings so they are freaked out by some new studio.
