How to prep for your in home newborn session

Congratulations on welcoming your new bundle of joy! In-home sessions are so special and sweet. There's nothing quite like bringing your little one home. Preparing for an in-home newborn session can be a fun and exciting experience. Here are a few tips to help get your home ready:

  • Pick one room in your home with plenty of natural light and keep the shades open.

  • Make sure your chosen room is tidy – this will ensure an uncluttered background for the photos. This can be baby's nursery, your bedroom, living room, etc.

  • Make sure the room is a comfortable temperature for your little one.

  • (Optional) Bring out special items or props that you would like to include in the photos, such as a special blanket, stuffed animals, or a special outfit.

  • Have a few bottles and diapers on hand, just in case. We can stop for nursing/feeding breaks as needed.

Bonus tip: Giving baby a bath the morning of the session can help them relax later on and get sleepy for photos! Most importantly, don't stress! You just had a baby and the house may be a mess and that is 100% OKAY! We will be focusing on your little one and your connection, baby bonding with the family, etc.
