When you’ve just arrived home from the hospital with a newborn, doing just about anything is a feat. So when I opened my own photography business, I was determined to find a way to make it easier for people like you to get photographs taken of your baby in their earliest days of life.
It was because of this that I decided to do in-home newborn photography sessions.
7 reasons why in-home newborn photography sessions are better for you and your baby:
1. No travel involved.
I bring everything to your home, including a posing pillow for your baby, backdrops, blankets and, of course, my camera.
2. Your baby is comfortable.
Your baby is most comfortable inside of your home. So why go anywhere when a photography shoot can successfully happen inside your home?
3. You’ve got everything you need.
Let’s face it, as a new mother, you’ve got your own needs to worry about, too. When you can access everything right at home, there’s no need to stress about packing up your essentials.
4. You can take a nap.
Many of my clients take a cat nap during my sessions. Perhaps it’s the sound of the white noise maker that I bring with me to every shoot. The sound is very relaxing to babies and parents alike.
5. Weather always permits.
For winter babies especially, going outdoors in the earliest days is not always recommended if it can be avoided. But when your photography session occurs at home, you don’t have to worry about the chill of the air or being in a studio full of other people’s germs.
6. Snacks and drinks are within arm’s reach.
Another thing my clients love to do when I’m photographing is eat. A photography session is a great time to spoil yourself a little bit with a relaxing lunch or snack.
7. You can nurse or feed your baby comfortably.
As a new mother, nursing was a big challenge for me. I was very timid to do this in public at first. When your baby is photographed inside your home, you can whisk the baby away for a private feeding session within your own home, if this makes you more comfortable, too.
Whenever you book a newborn photography session with me, you’re the only client booked for that day. Most sessions take two hours, but sometimes the baby simply needs more time to feed or fall asleep. And that’s okay. Since I only book one session each day, I’m able to spend extra time with each baby to ensure amazing images are captured every time.
