People often ask which type of session I prefer when it comes to doing newborn shoots, whether it be at home or in the studio. Short answer… your home. The more photo sessions I have done the more I have fallen in love with coming to my client’s home to capture the new bundle of joy. There is something so intimate and personal about having the photos taken in your house, not to mention it makes it a little easier on the new moms! I have noticed that the sessions tend to be a bit more relaxed and more of a photojournalist style can be incorporated as well. Now, I will say that these in-home sessions are shorter and less intricate because we do not have the same setup as we do in the studio or a second pair of hands. When I show up to our client’s house, it is just me, my camera and natural light. Ultimately it is a personal preference based on what it is you are looking to get out of the session.
