Should You Have an In-Home or Studio Newborn Session for Your Baby? | Sarasota In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Photographer
Lifestyle newborn photography is a beautiful way to commemorate the birth of your new addition to the family. As you are searching for a professional photographer, there may be some questions you are asking yourself. If you are already in the midst of researching, you have, no doubt, found hundreds of newborn photographers. Each have their own unique style and specialty. It's probably becoming overwhelming for you to choose.
To help you narrow it down, ask yourself...
Should these first photos of your brand new baby be taken at home or in a studio?
Having photos taken in the comfort and security of your own home is safer for your new baby.
With the photographer coming to your home, you are not taking your baby out into the public and risking him or her catching something.
Safety is my number one concern when photographing newborns and by being in your home, the risk is minimal.
Being in the home is more comfortable for everyone, especially if there are siblings.
With a new baby in the house, everything changes. It gets crazy, whether this is your first child or fifth child. By staying home for the photo session, you won't have to worry about packing up everything you would need for the baby. Being home, relaxing, makes for a more enjoyable time together as a family. Your baby will also be more comfortable being surrounded by familiar sounds and smells. This allows the lifestyle photographer to capture more relaxed, natural and connected images, which brings me to my last point...
Having in-home newborn photographs portrays you and your family's true emotions.
I let the baby lead the posing, which means I don't stiffly pose them by putting them in awkward positions. I will "pose" them naturally. I love capturing the natural, raw emotion of the moment. No "perfect" posing. I like to show real life, connecting and loving with one another. The home is the best place to showcase your baby in their own environment, whether it be in your bedroom, their nursery or the living room.
Therefore, having your newborn photographed in your own home is safer, more comfortable and more natural. It's a fantastic way to begin this new journey that goes by oh, too fast.
