Why Home Newborn Sessions are the Perfect Choice for London Parents

Congratulations on your new bundle of joy! Your baby is a miracle, and I know you want to capture every moment of this precious time. Newborn photography is a beautiful way to document your child’s earliest days, and as a professional newborn photographer, I would love to be the one to capture those memories for you. 

But I also understand that it can be daunting to pack up your baby and all their accessories to go to a studio. That’s why I want to share with you some of the benefits of doing a home newborn photography session.

The newborn stage doesn’t last very long.

Babies grow up quickly, and those early days go by in the blink of an eye. A home newborn photography session typically lasts around two hours, which may seem like a long time, but it’s relatively short compared to how quickly your baby will grow and change. By having the session at home, you won’t have to spend a long time travelling to and from a studio, giving you more time to enjoy those precious early moments with your baby.

It’s so much more relaxing.

Going to a photography studio with a newborn can be stressful. You’re worried about packing everything your baby needs, getting them dressed, and making sure they’re fed and comfortable. By having the session at home, you can relax in your own environment, knowing that everything you need is close at hand. You can feed your baby when they need it, change them when they need it, and take a break when you need it.

You don’t have to worry about your wardrobe.

One of the advantages of a home newborn photography session is that you don’t have to worry about what to wear. You can dress in comfortable clothes, and even wear your pyjamas if you want to! Your baby will also be dressed in comfortable clothes that they’re used to wearing, which can make them feel more relaxed during the session.

You can wear your pjs.

This may seem like a small thing, but trust me. It can make a big difference. When you’re comfortable and relaxed, your baby will be too. Wearing pyjamas or comfortable clothing can help you feel more at ease, which will help your baby feel more at ease.

You’re already home, so you can easily access snacks and drinks!

During a home newborn session, you can have whatever you need to hand. Snacks, drinks, toys, blankets, everything is already in your home. You don’t have to worry about packing everything and bringing it. You can even order take away during our session!

You can follow your own schedule.

You don’t get to pick the time of day when your baby shows up, and that’s no big deal when you’re at home for your photos. Babies don’t always follow a schedule, and that’s okay. With a home session, I only photograph one baby per day so we have lots of time to soothe, feed and keep baby comfortable.

Cats and dogs are welcome! And grandparents are welcome too! 

If they want to be in the photos, that’s great! If not, I’m really good with a lens cover. 😉

Pets and grandparents are a big part of your family and should be included in your photos if you want them to be. With a home session, your pets and grandparents can be a part of the session without any additional stress. And if your pets or grandparents don’t want to be in the photos, that’s okay too. I’m happy to work around them. I adore animals and am always so patient with them as they are part of the family too.

You can breastfeed during the newborn session if you need to (or want to). 

I do what I can to keep the baby happy, fed, and asleep during the session, but I understand that breastfeeding may be needed. As a mother, I know the importance of breastfeeding and will ensure that you and your baby are comfortable during the session. If you’d like photos of breastfeeding, I will work that into the session as skin to skin photographs are so beautiful.

A home newborn photography session offers many benefits, making it a great choice for parents in London. It’s more relaxed, comfortable, and convenient, allowing you to capture those precious early moments with your baby in the comfort of your home. 

As a professional newborn photographer, I’m here to work with you to create beautiful, meaningful photographs you will treasure for a lifetime. If you’re interested in booking a home newborn session, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I would be honoured to work with you and your family.
