There are a lot of newborn session myths out there. Maybe you’ve heard them from a friend or even a photographer. And during our phone consult you’ve asked me these questions with concern in your voice. Well, I’m here to debunk them all!
FALSE. 100% false. Newborns can be asleep, awake, fussy, eating…and they usually do it all during their in-home photo session.
Lifestyle in-home newborn sessions aren’t posed, so the baby can be all of the above! No big deal.
I hear this ALL the time! With panic in your voice because your baby is (gasp!) already ten days old. Breath. I shoot newborns as old as eight weeks. Again, lifestyle newborn sessions aren’t posed, so it doesn’t matter! In fact, I love photographing older newborns!
They can be in a white onesie or you can choose a special one piece outfit for them to wear. But you only need one! Although, blowouts happen, so it’s not a bad idea to have a back-up outfit, too. I have a whole blog post on What Your Newborn Should Wear!
Ok, you hired me, a lifestyle newborn photographer, so no props please! Now if prop filled photos are what you’re looking for, you might want to find a different photographer. I’m all about real life moments over prop filled ones. Take a look at my portfolio to get an idea of what I offer.
NO! Not at all. I have done sessions in rental homes and I’ve worked around moving boxes. You do not need anything but a baby and some windows for a newborn session. Ok?
Do me a favor. Don’t believe everything you hear! Instead, set-up a phone consult with me and let me answer all your questions. I’ll even walk you through a session.
Expecting in 2022? I’m currently booking newborns due January through June 2022!
