In-Home Newborn sessions are a beautiful way to capture those first special memories, emotions and details. These are lifestyle sessions – seeking to capture the beauty and uniqueness of you and your little one. No need for props or posing. Your baby is the star and you get to enjoy them.
Doing them in your home frees you from having to worry about getting out, germs, when the baby has to eat, etc. I give 2-3 hours for a newborn session to allow for everyone to be able to relax and attended to. Baby needs fed? No problem! A poppy diaper? No fear of having forgot to bring along extra diapers.
What is a lifestyle in-home newborn photo session?
Go read this post to see if these sessions feel like a good fit for you.
“I’ve never had in-home photos and am not sure I will know what to do…”
Please don’t worry or stress over this. This is why you are wanting to hire a professional. From the time you book I will be guiding you through the session. From tips beforehand – how to prep your home, what to wear and best ideas to get your family ready. I’ll be guiding you through the session. I’ll give suggestions on where to stand and how to place your body and hands in a manner that is flattering. It might be a first for you but I will be right there helping you along. You will be amazing!
When should I schedule my session?
With newborn sessions, contact me as soon as you know you want a session. We put a “guess date” in the calendar and then after your newborn is born we’ll discuss from there. Newborn sessions are best within the first 3 weeks but can be done anytime before your baby is 12 weeks old.
A $200 non refundable session fee is required to secure your session.
