Frequently asked questions about Newborn Pictures at Home

I get lots of questions about newborn sessions! Read on for a few of my most frequently asked questions and my best answers.

Where are the pictures taken?

The best part about newborn pictures at home is that you don’t have to leave your house for your pictures! This is because the pictures are taken right in your own home. Having a newborn is so amazing, but also can be stressful. Some people choose to have their newborn photos done in a studio. However, that involves packing everything up and driving somewhere. And if you’ve never had a newborn, you might not exactly realize what that entails. Trust me, it is so nice to be nearby all of your own bottles, pacifiers, sanitary supplies for yourself, extra clothing, etc. Additionally, you spend your entire session in the comfort of your own home. This is a big plus for a new mom. After giving birth, you often need many personal and medical items within an arms reach- for yourself and your baby!

Which rooms should we take the pictures in?

For newborn pictures at home, I recommend taking your photos primarily in your master bedroom and the nursery. In addition, you can take your photos in any room that has plenty of natural light. You will need to prepare these rooms as best you can by clearing all clutter away. When I arrive, I will survey the scene! I will most likely move a few more things. Sometimes, I will even take items from other places in your house and move them to the rooms we are photographing in! As someone experienced in lifestyle newborn photography, I know exactly what will look l lovely in the background of your photos!

What should we wear?

For your newborn pictures, I will send you a preparation guide that I have specifically prepared for my clients. It will give you all sorts of advice on how to dress yourself and your baby. I also have a selection of dresses you can borrow from me. In addition to all that, I will provide you with links to many dresses that I know to photograph beautifully. One shop that I highly recommend is Morning Lavender. Morning Lavender has absolutely gorgeous dresses that are usually quite stretchy for new mamas! Use code CHRISTINA21 for 10% off your Morning Lavender purchase! For your baby, I recommend an adorable swaddle like this one pictured on Rafael from Aden & Anais.
