At home newborn photos are one of my absolute favorites to capture! Within the first two weeks after your little one has been born is the ideal time to plan for newborn photos.
Miss Lola is pure sweetness! Her parents and big sister, Lottie, are smitten over her and were smiling ear-to-ear while we took these at home newborn photos.
At home newborn photos offer a casual, natural, and authentic look to your newborn pictures. I like to take a more natural and effortless approach to the newborn photos I capture, and being at home with a family is where they feel most comfortable and at ease. If you aren’t prepared to have newborn photos taken at home, that’s OK too! There are other options we can choose from when planning for newborn photos.
When preparing for newborn photos, I always encourage my clients to have a few outfits picked out for the baby that coordinate with what they are wearing. Newborn clothes are the cutest, so make sure you have something special picked out for your little one to wear. And, just in case, have a few back up outfits ready in case there is a messy diaper or spit-up.
After having worked with numerous newborn clients, there are several tips and tricks to help things go smoothly during your session. You never want to feel rushed or anxious during your baby’s newborn photos, so I recommend taking these tips into account before your at home newborn session.
Lola’s nursery is a dream! Her dad hung this special vintage-style poppy floral wallpaper on an accent wall behind her crib. Let me tell you, it is a showstopper! Every little detail in Lola’s nursery was beautifully placed.
We even recruited Lola’s big sister Lottie to join in on the fun! We tucked the two girls into this Design Dua bassinet basket for a sweet photo too!
Lottie is quite the little Mama and was always ready to help with Lola’s pacifier to make sure she was happy!
