At home newborn photo session :
You are about to become parents or have just recently become parents. You are planning to have a “at home” newborn session, you might have some questions popping in your mind. Let me comfort you in your decision on why having a at home newborn session is a great idea ! In this article, I will guide you through it, because as a lifestyle photographer, I believe in the beauty of the simple things.
You are about to write a new chapter in your lives, yours as well as your baby’s. A newborn routine is full of “firsts”. Simple gestures such as the very first time he will hold your hands tightly. His little face when he smiles for the first time. Those long and intense looks as soon as he sees your face properly and moves his head to look for you when hearing the sound of your voice …
To choose to have a “at home” newborn photo session is to choose to look further, for details that will last longer.
It is also about documenting this very precious part of your life. His firsts as a newborn as well as yours as parents. To keep hold of these details is to acknowledge the infinite value of your life and routine, as it is right now.
Let’s talk about the comfort you home will provide !
No need to get stressed with getting out of the house with your baby and to think about all the logistics ! You and your baby will stay in your family environment, in this haven of love and security that you built. It also part of your personal history. You feel cosy, you know all about your own light and decoration, and that makes a great difference. Each detail plays its part and says a little bit more about yourself. Of course, all these simple things help create a reassuring environment, in which you will be able to enjoy fully your at home newborn photo session.
Prior to the photo session, we will take the time to discuss a little bit about your family daily routine and rythm (probably quite hectic right now). Indeed, when I come at your home, I like to let life unfold itself in front of my camera. I also take time to capture moments that are dear to you. For exemple, when Daddy comes home, very often, it is a special to bond with his baby, and very often, he has his favorite spot in the house to do so.
Feeding time is also a very priviledged moment. It is the ultimate connection, and it doesnt matter if you are breastfeeding or bottle feeding. When things are done with love and tenderness, it is all that matters. One thing I know for sure, is that, when you become a Mama, you are full of love, in a way that you never imagined possible. My vision is to translate into images all that is not visible to the eyes, and everything I can feel just by being by your side, in your home.
I also suggest strongly during the at home newborn photo session, to u-include bath time into our photo session timing together. Yet again, one more of those “firsts” that I like to capture. Bath time is often a moment well appreciated by babies. They connect with water the same way they did in utero. Each delicate touch, each movement is so simple and yet so powerful. Skin to skin connections leave place to stunning images, filled with emotions. Timeless memories to document your daily life, which you will be able to revisit and share as often as you like.
To choose a “at home” newborn photo session is to believe in the beauty of the simple things.
