Hello, my dear friends. Today I will share with you Sophia-Belle’s home newborn photoshoot. Parents wanted this session to look like studio work so I had to do some prep. Normally it would take very candid look photos, but Sophia-Belle’s newborn girl photoshoot had to be more posed.
Newborn session was part of their bump to baby photoshoot plan. Check it out what I offer in this plan. You can see there a full year of Sophia-Belle’s photo sessions.
I can tell you that there were loads of things to pack it up in one car :) My posing bag itself is half of the car. As I tend to create interesting images during these sessions, I need to bring all must things and twice as much for the backup :) Accidents do happen and I’m ready for them.
The advantage for you to do newborn sessions at home is that you don’t leave the house. I have made whole parents guide about home newborn sessions. This particular client had a medical issue and she couldn’t come to my studio. I knew that beforehand. We did a nice maternity session and already then planned to do a newborn session at home.
I love going to clients homes as I get to use their own place to stylise my sessions. It is more relaxing for the family too. The only thing I should mention about house sessions is the light and available space. If it is a small flat, I would not advise you to do a session at home but come to my Edinburgh photo studio. The final result will be much more pleasing.
The session went well and I managed to try rabbit hat as well. Clients had a nice box in the house and I was about to snatch that from them. We decided to use the box to show the milestones throughout the session.
Few more photos of our newborn photoshoot.
Quite a bit of pink :) I bet you noticed that. She was wee star and I’m really happy for the family. Looking forward to seeing her again soon.
Are you planning your newborn session and not sure where to start?
