Newborn photos are a must, you know this,right? But, newborn photos can be hard. Between the nursing, the pooping, people sweating, tired people needing naps, it can be an exhausting day. Let me give you a list of locations to put your mind at ease and get you excited for your newborn session.
1. Newborn Photos in Your Home
In my opinion, your home is the best location for your newborn session. There are several reasons for this, but first and foremost, it’s comfortable for you and your baby. You’re in the place that makes you feel your best, you know the ins and outs of the furniture, the light, etc. Remember that stuff I mentioned above? The pooping, the feeding, the exhaustion? It’s such a great feeling knowing that all of those needs can be met at home. Need a diaper? Got it. Need to nurse? No problemo. Make a bottle? Taken care of. In order to have a session at home, I always suggest using a couple different rooms. Your living room, nursery, and sometimes the master bedroom are all rooms that work marvelously. However, I’ve been to some homes where their dining room offered amazing light and was decorated beautifully. We will make sure that your windows are all open and the natural light is pouring in.

2.) Indoor Studios
Indoor studios are another great option for newborn sessions. I don’t blame couples for not wanting to pick up and declutter after just bringing a baby home. People are exhausted, and sometimes just want an easy location that is already staged for photos. All of the studios I use have a ton of light and offer different furniture that can mimic a home. Beds, rocking chairs, couches etc. Is it the same cozy feeling of your home? Sometimes! It depends on the studio! We just have to make sure that we have all of the necessities to make it a smooth session. Bring a change of clothes for everyone, plenty of food, water and smiles.

3.) Newborn Photos Outdoors
Outdoor newborn photos don’t happen often, but are still a possibility. This type of location is perfect for families that don’t want people in their home just after bring a baby home, and don’t want the added cost of a studio session. I would suggest only summer time photos for outdoor newborns because we want to keep that little one nice and warm. Again, not popular, but possible. Click here to book your outdoor newborn photos!
