5 Benefits of a Home Newborn Photography Session

5 Benefits of a Home Lifestyle Newborn Photography Session in London

1.) Home Newborn Sessions are Easy for a Postpartum Mum

The postpartum bubble is super stressful, exhausting and all-consuming. There’s no schedule, routine and there’s barely time to get dressed. It can be really hard on new parents to get everything packed and out of the house in time for an appointment. Those cluster feeds can make getting out of the house on time almost impossible! A home newborn photography session is great because you can just get dressed and I show up ready to shoot! A natural newborn photography session is super relaxed and we stop for unlimited feeds, cuddles and tea breaks! There is no pressure in a lifestyle newborn photography session as my sessions are quite organic and I love to capture all the cuddles!


2.) You Can Include Your Pets in A Home Photography Session

A lifestyle home newborn session is a brilliant way to incorporate all your fur babies! I love love love sessions with pets as they are such an important part of the family! Your child will always remember their first pet and it’s just the sweetest thing to capture them together in baby’s early days! I’ve had so many amazing sessions where the dogs steal the show and love the camera! It is so adorable to watch how they have adapted to a new baby and often we capture images of them looking like the precious older sibling!


3.) Incorporate Memories of Your Home

I love to think of my childhood home and the memories we had there. I wish we had more images of us in it all together as a family as I can only piece together memories of it. Your home showcases your personality and is the heart of your family. It is so crucial to capture the place your little one is going to grow up in. I love using your home as a backdrop to the images- the fresh new nursery, the master bedroom and the living room where you spend so much time in your newborn bubble. They are so fantastic to use as a backdrop and create so much meaning.


4.) Baby is sleepier in Your Home

I find my sessions in home go so much quicker now as baby hasn’t slept on a long car journey. In their home they have a feed and generally are good to go! The whole session is so much more relaxed as no one has anywhere to be and no one is worried about travelling with a newborn.


5.) A Natural Newborn Session

A home lifestyle newborn session is just so much more natural than a studio session. I love using organic natural light and homes help shape my images creatively. I love posing baby naturally, just how they are and getting a new family to snuggle together rather than awkwardly pose and smile at the camera.


There are so many advantages to having a newborn photography session in your home- they are more genuine and capture real memories in your home, you can incorporate your pets (such important family members), you don’t need to rush out the door and thus, you feel more relaxed! Home newborn photography sessions are just so much more relaxing and result in a more natural look.
