Can You Do Newborn Photos at Home?

Years ago, when I first started doing photography, I thought I had to only do posed newborn sessions.


Studio like setting, plain backdrop, as many poses of the baby as possible (even if I couldn't do them well). All the things.


Then, one day I had a newborn session an hour away. I couldn't bring the studio, so I had them use the master bedroom bed.


And, that's when I realized, I preferred that kind of newborn photos.


The kind where the backdrop is the home (not a piece of fabric or roll of paper).


Where the toddlers can play, come in and out of where we are and be comfortable.


Where snacks are readily available.


And where I can also capture the nursery and all the details of this new little life and the love that surrounds him/her.


Lifestyle Newborn Photography had my heart.


I love being a newborn photographer and capturing all the love.


So, take a moment today to see a few of my favorite images from a recent newborn photography session at home!
