Why You’ll Love An In Home Newborn Photography Session

This post about in home newborn photography session benefits and these images were contributed by Auburn, California Newborn Photographer Meg Hunter Photography.

In home newborn sessions are personally my favorite sessions to capture. There is a calming and relaxed energy coursing throughout the home during a newborn session. As a mama of soon to be three little boys, I’ve actually speak from experience.

With my first child, I had the honor of getting to experience a studio session. The session was beautiful but didn’t feel like it completely encompassed the essence of our family. Then with our second child we booked an outdoor newborn session. It was amazing but also came with its challenges. Besides loading the car, with a toddler involved it was a little more stressful for me personally. The session also turned into a whole day event. Now for my third I get to experience the calming and enjoyable indoor newborn session which my clients have experienced with me as their Auburn, California newborn photographer! Here are the top 5 reasons that choosing an indoor newborn session might be right for you: 

1: NO NEED TO LOAD THE CAR UP or WORRY ABOUT TRAFFIC

When choosing an in home newborn session you skip the stresses and worries of thinking about snacks, bottles, pumping equipment, diapers, changes of clothes or anything else you may need when leaving the house with a newborn. You are already home so anything you may or may not need will already be within reach. There are practically no chances of forgetting something important, resulting in unnecessary stress. Leave it to me, or your photographer of choice, to come to you and therefore allow you to not stress about getting anywhere on time with a newborn in those early days. 

2: EVERYONE IS MORE AT EASE IN THEIR OWN HOME 

Whether we are thinking about older siblings, the new family addition or even our husbands, everyone is always more relaxed and at ease when they are in their own element. Everything around them is familiar and kid friendly.

3: SIBLINGS TEND TO WARM UP QUICKER

Just as being home for mom and dad helps ease some stress, when there is a toddler involved they also tend to open up quicker to the photographer. They have all their favorite toys and everything is on their territory rather than somewhere completely new. Often, big siblings are excited to welcome the photographer into their home and play the role of host, showing off their favorite toys and new sibling.

4: BREAKS DURING IN HOME NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS

When you have your newborn session at home its far more relaxing and comfortable for mom. You can take a break and to feed your baby without having to juggle the extra hassle of feeding your child in public. Even in a studio, it can be difficult to relaxing in the same you would in your own, familiar home. Of course, breaks in a familiar space aren’t just beneficial for the mom. Older siblings can easily scamper off for a snack or to play with toys when in need of a breather.

5: INCORPORATING YOUR HOME AND HOW IT WAS AT THE TIME OF BRINGING HOME BABY

A huge part of what I love about looking back on family photos from when I was growing up is not only the main subject of the image but also the background. Seeing familiar furnishings inspire memories of family movie nights. Seeing the kitchen causes me to vividly remember baking with my mom. Then there are all the memories of running throughout the halls of our home. It gives such a nostalgic feeling that warms my heart. I love in home newborn photography sessions mainly for this reason: being able to replicate that sensation for my clients. I know my images will play this role of helping my client’s children recall their childhood memories.

Having an in home newborn photography session truly is an unforgettable, irreplaceable memory. It overflows with so much love and meaning. It captures the whole essence of your family household. I will forever be a lover of in home sessions and therefore highly suggest them to all my clients thinking about investing in a newborn session!
