When I photograph babies, I like to keep the photos as natural as possible, as with all my photography sessions. If your baby is old enough and the weather is warm it’s lovely to get outside in a local park. But if you have a newborn or it’s the middle of winter then I prefer to do the baby photography session in the comfort of your home, rather than in a studio.
Relaxing, natural baby photography at home
This is for quite a few reasons, which I’d like to share with you. Firstly, if your baby is newborn it’s so much easier for you to stay in your home for the session. I will come to you, so you don’t have to worry about getting somewhere on time. I find it hard to believe that my two “little ones” are both teenagers now. However, I still remember how long it used to take me to get out of the house in those early days! It’s something I wouldn’t have believed before having my first baby. But it really would take me hours to get everything organised and through the front door!
Also, because I come to your home for the photography session there’s no pressure on time. I will stay with you until we have a great variety of fantastic images of you with your baby. So, if your baby needs to nap, feed or have a nappy change you can relax. There’s no need to worry that your time will be up soon.
Including your home in the baby portraits
Another reason I love to do baby photography sessions at home is so that your house can be the backdrop to the images. I really enjoy looking back at old family photos of when I was young. Not only do I love looking at my family and friends, but I’m also fascinated with the décor of our home all those years ago! It’s particularly special to look back fondly on these family photos if you move home later on.
If you’re interested in a natural baby photography session in the comfort of your family home, please do get in touch. I’d love to create some meaningful images of you and your little one that will be treasured for generations to come.
