Thinking about using your home for your newborn session? There are a 3 big things to consider before knowing your home is the perfect location.

Light

Having a big source of natural light is key for a successful in-home newborn session. Most of the photos will be taken within the nursery, master bedroom or living room. So be sure to walk through these rooms to determine the optimal time of day to take advantage of the most natural light.

Style of your home

Do you have an open floor plan with lighter and neutral tones or a home with small windows, darker walls and a closed floor plan? This is considering factor when thinking about an in-home newborn session, as I stated above that natural light is key.

Don’t hesitate to send over a few photos of the rooms in your home and we can decide if an in-home session or a natural light studio session is best for your family. I have access to a few natural light studio in the Twin Cities that work wonderful for a newborn session.

Comfortability

Home is where you feel comfortable and are most relaxed. You may not feel comfortable taking your newborn (7-14 day old) out yet, let alone get yourself and your family out the door in time. That’s all completely normal and I love that I can take that stress away and come to you.

Another factor may be if newborn has a toddler sibling that is shy or nervous around new people. By being in their own home it can be an added comfort during the session. And if you’re looking for photography session tips with a toddler, check out my 4 simple tips to help make the session a breeze.

Whether you feel your home is a perfect location for your newborn session or a natural light studio is best, I would love to talk further to help you decide on the perfect place.

I loved capturing these Edina fall family pictures! We met on a warm, fall morning just as the trees started to turn yellow. I always enjoy a morning session as little ones typically have lots of energy to share. Plus, they aren’t already exhausted from the day. Being able to photograph this family in the […]
