In-home Newborn Photography Sessions

Over the past couple of years, I have had the privilege of photographing many sweet newborns and babies. Newborn photography is so special because your little one will not be a newborn forever. Because of this, it is so important to have this particular moment in your child’s life documented. Because I have had so many questions about newborn photography, I decided to write this blog post to give more detailed information about my In-home Newborn Photography sessions.

Details: The Newborn Photography Session is a 2-3 hour in-home, lifestyle session designed for your newborn. The newborn photography session includes beautiful, retouched images that are suitable for printing and displaying. Newborns will be photographed separately, and then can be photographed with parents and/or siblings in the nursery or another area within the home.

Setup: A small, newborn setup (complete with lights & a small heater to keep your newborn warm) will be created in the comfort of your home (see image below). Even though I provide wraps, blankets, rugs, baskets, etc. for the newborn portrait session, I always encourage my clients to include their favorite props too! As soon as I arrive to your home, I will find an area that will be suitable for my newborn setup.

Safety: Newborns will ONLY be lightly posed in his/her natural state while lying on his/her tummy, back, or side. Difficult and strenuous posing will not be performed. The comfort and safety of the newborn is always my number one priority. I always make sure newborns are posed in a safe way. In the photo below, you will see how the mom gently held her finger on the newborn’s head while I photographed him. I removed the mom’s hand afterwards during the retouching and editing process.

Lifestyle Session: After photographing the newborn, I will also do a lifestyle session with the parents and/or siblings in the baby’s nursery or in another suitable area within the home.

  1. […] Pretty in Pink! Sweet baby Isla had her newborn portraits taken at just 3 weeks old! Isla’s mom and I attended school together (elementary, high school, & college) so I was so excited when I was asked to take her newborn photos. I cannot wait to see if Isla grows up to compete in pageants like her mom did! Below are a few of my favorites from her sweet newborn session.

  2. […] This was a very special newborn session because this little guy is my nephew! I call him little G (short for Grant – who was named after my paternal grandfather I never got a chance to meet). My nephew was born June 2, 2018 (just 1 day after my birthday – he was trying really hard to make his debut on my birthday though). At only 2 days old, he took his little newborn photos with a setup I made in my sister’s home. Here are some of my favorites from Baby Grant’s In-Home Newborn Session! […]
