in home newborn session - newborn photographer boston

In home newborn session or studio newborn session? In home sessions offer the opportunity to include your home or nursery in your photos for a more personal feel along with the convenience of me coming to you following the birth. When there are older siblings, we start with family and sibling pictures so dad and the older kids can get back to their regular routine while I spend the rest of the session with the baby. Definitely a plus if dad does not have a long paternity leave!
You do not need to have a magazine ready home for a successful in home session, but you do need to have some natural light and at least one area (nursery, bed or couch) that fits the style you would like for family pictures. For pictures of baby alone bring a newborn posing pillow, blankets and wraps for a series of naturally posed pictures of baby so this portion of the session will be similar to a studio session.
When is an in home newborn session not the best fit? If you are in a space with very limited natural light, the style of your home does not match the feel you want for your newborn pictures or you prefer not have have the pressure of getting your home ready for photos just after bringing home a new baby.
Not sure which session option is the best fit? We do not need to finalize your session location until after your baby arrives. At this point you will have a better idea how your recovery is going and how you feel about leaving the house with baby vs having me come to you.
In home was a great fit for this session since baby girl had a beautiful nursery, big brother was most comfortable at home and dad was able to join us for the start of the session and then head to work. In terms of style, this session was mostly lifestyle with a few more posed images of baby which I think is a great way to capture newborns!
