What is the difference between Studio and In Home Newborn Sessions.

In Home Newborn Session

Choosing the right option for your Newborn session is up to your personal preference. What is the difference with In Home or Studio Newborn Sessions? Well, both options allow for great pictures, and each are different in there own way. The choice really boils down to personal preference.

In Home Newborn Sessions

I have a soft place for In Home Newborn Sessions. To me the main difference is that by being in your Home you are able to tell your story! You are able to capture your newborn in either your First Home or the First place you lived. A memory you can share with them should you move as they age.

Being in your home also allows for a comfort level. As a new mom, you don’t have to rush out and prepare a week old newborn, and if you have a toddler it keeps a level of safety for them during the session.

What if my House isn’t clean enough?

Believe it or not that is the one thing I say to not stress. I typically will go over this with you before the session, but when I arrive I usually scope out the rooms with the best light. We typically only shoot in 1 or 2 room, and only the side I choose we shoot. So you can just push the mess t the other side and no one will ever see it. Also, I will never judge, I am Mom of 4, your mess is still cleaner than my house ;).

What about Access to your props.

When I come to your home, I have a condensed version of my Studio. I bring a few wraps I like, my main neutral blanket and a Moses basket.

What is the draw back with In Home or Newborn Sessions?

Mainly the lighting. That tends to take the most time for me to establish the best place, and then preparing as opposed to the Studio where it is all controlled.

Studio Newborn Sessions

Unlike the Comfortable aspect of Home Newborn Sessions, Studio Newborn Sessions allow for control of the session. When you arrive you can trust, the setting is already ready for you, I have the options laid out. My lighting is controlled so we don’t have to worry about that.

Also if you don’t worry about cleaning your house, you can take that weight off your shoulders. I try my best to have the studio feel as lifestyle as possible. I have a back room where you can nurse in privacy. I have a coffee bar if a cup of coffee is needed, and area for you to sit as I photograph your Newborn.

So How do I go about Booking.

Great, once you decide to Work with me, the fun part begins. Getting you on the schedule. Since we can’t predict the exact time your Newborn will enter this world, I advise to book the session with a $99 deposit marking it on the estimated Due Date. This allows me to know you are in my system and I am on alert. From there, you will contact me via text or email once baby is born and I will work on securing a date.

When Should the Newborn session take place?

I recommend the first 5-12 days after you deliver. I think the 7 day mark is a sweet spot, giving you as Mom a chance to recoup.
