As a Milwaukee lifestyle newborn photographer, I am regularly invited into the intimate spaces of my clientele. I'm sure this seems intimidating at first thought...the idea of someone bearing witness to the piles of laundry, stacks of dishes and random assortment of onesies scattered throughout your home may send you into a nervous tailspin. I'm human and fully understand where you're coming from. My own house isn't Pinterest-perfect, yet with some strategic placement and a quick burst of power cleaning, I could easily make my home ready for a photoshoot!
One of the key components of photography is light. Beautiful natural light can elevate imagery in even the messiest location. If cleaning the whole house sounds like a nightmare, focus on creating a neutral backdrop wherever you see the highest quality natural light.
In-home newborn sessions are cozy and practical for families. Instead of packing up the carseat, the diaper bag and the baby to head to a photography studio, invite your newborn photographer into your home to document the realities of life with a new baby. We'll do a tour of the baby's nursery, the master bedroom and the living room. If your favorite spot to hangout is the sunroom, we'll venture there. The point is, we can make magic wherever there is beautiful light and genuine connection. Wherever you are, in whatever condition the space is, a professional photographer can curate the proper elements for a beautiful and impactful photograph.
Imperfection is reality, imperfection creates interest and charm. Perfectly posed and staged is out, what will matter to you in ten years is the ability for a photograph to transport you back to the rich mix of emotions that you are feeling during this new era of your life. Authentic, organic, timeless.
You are worthy, your home is worthy and your family is worthy of documenting these treasured moments in the place that you call home.
A few things to keep in mind when planning your newborn photography session at-home:
Create a neutral backdrop
Find the high quality light
Include your family pets
Focus on the beauty of your baby
Snuggle in and enjoy your family's connection
Let your baby lead
We're living through a Pinterest-perfect era in which we are putting exorbitant amounts of pressure on ourselves to be seen as the best chef, the best party planner, the best interior designer and the best mom. The reality is, of course, that most of us do not live in a home that resembles HGTV...and you know what? That's ok! In order to create beautiful imagery, we really only need some beautiful natural light and a neutral backdrop. Rest assured that together, we can create beautiful imagery of your new arrival that will flood you with emotions of love, joy and connection time and time again.
