This newborn photo session was on location in the customer’s home.  Some clients prefer in home sessions as opposed to coming to the studio.  This can be a relief especially for new parents that are still adjusting to little sleep.  The whole session takes about 3 hours from start to finish.  I bring all the props and materials needed to photograph newborn babies.  From the posing pillow, to the wraps and headbands.  I work with clients to bring a variety of items to match their style.

Mom had warned me that this little angel had not been sleeping very well.  I assured her that eventually all babies do go to sleep and the best thing she could do was relax and we would work through it together.  After I set up the backgrounds and had everything ready to go, she went right to sleep and slept through most of her posed photos.  We had to take a short break to let her eat, and then we moved into the family photos.

Here are some of my favorite photos from our session.  Mom and Dad were feeling a little shy and asked me to only show photos of baby on the blog.  Enjoy!
