Top Reasons to Have Newborn Photos at Home

There are so many amazing reasons to have your newborn photos done at home, here are just a few of the reasons why I love these intimate lifestyle portrait session!

Ease and Convenience

Life with a newborn is wonderful, but it can be anything but easy! As a result, that is why I love offering in-home newborn sessions to families and new parents. Deciding to have your photos done at your home means that you won’t have to worry about getting out of the house with everything you need or by a certain time. You won’t need to stress about making sure that you have diapers, bottles, or outfit changes in case there are any incidents. Instead, you’ll be able to have everything you need close by without having to worry!

Additionally, one of the best reasons for choosing to have your newborn photos at home is that I can easily schedule for you to have your hair and makeup done in-home as well! I absolutely love being able to offer this perk to new moms and it truly helps make you feel relaxed and at your best ahead of your photos!


Siblings are more Comfortable

In addition to the ease and convenience of having newborn photos done at home, these lifestyle photo sessions also make older siblings feel more comfortable! In-home newborn sessions allow older siblings to jump in and out of photos when it suits them, allowing plenty of time for them to take play or snack breaks. As a result, the whole family is able to enjoy the portrait experience just a bit more!


Pets can be Included

Another perk about lifestyle newborn sessions is that your fur babies can be included too! I know that for so many families their pets are just as loved as their human siblings and I am always thrilled to help document this important moment for ALL your family members – pets included! Much like older siblings, in-home sessions allow your pets to join in when they’d like without the stress of having to keep an eye on them when they need a break! Plus, is there anything sweeter than a puppy snuggling with a baby?


Photos of the Nursery

One thing that nearly every mom works so hard on during those last few weeks of pregnancy is getting the nursery ready to welcome your little one home! At an in-home newborn session I make sure to document every little detail in your nursery so that you (and your baby) can always remember the first room that they came home to! These photos will help you remember just how much work you put into making an extra special space just for them!


True to Life

No matter if you have pets, older siblings, or are welcoming your first baby to the world one thing is always true: having your newborn photos at home will help you document your life as it is in this incredible moment. In-home newborn photos will help you capture those moments snuggling in bed as a growing family, rocking your baby in their favorite chair, and all the little details that make your family and home special. These images are true to life for your family no matter the season of life you are in, and they will be cherished forever!
