A few favorites from a recent in home newborn session in the Seaport. I offer newborn sessions at my studio in Boston’s Back Bay as well as on location in the city’s surrounding suburbs.
So exactly how does an in home newborn session work? When baby is about two weeks old we arrange a weekday morning for me to come to your house. I arrive with a newborn posing pillow, blankets, wraps, a few simple accessories and camera gear for photographing baby.
I take a quick tour of the house and we decide which areas will work best for pictures. Often this is the nursery and master bedroom but sometimes a beautiful window, living area or outdoor area are added to the mix.
If necessary I do a quick declutter of the areas we will be using for photos and find an area with good natural light to set up my newborn posing pillow and blankets.
From there we follow baby’s lead. If baby is sleepy we start with pictures of baby sleeping on the newborn posing pillow. If baby is looking to be held we start with pictures with parents. If baby is hungry we take a feeding break.
The whole session takes between one and two hours and is a relaxed natural way to document your first days falling in love with your new baby!
