In home newborn photography can take place in any space with good natural light. The morning and early afternoon are opportune times for in home newborn sessions because of the brighter lighting that this earlier time provides. Its best to schedule your newborn photography session for this time of day for the best outcome.
In home sessions that take place in your own home can be a little more flexible in timing than in studio sessions because this style of newborn photography is more natural and candid. Typically babies for in studio newborn sessions are done in the first 5-10 days. Though this is great timing for in home newborn session as well, in home sessions can work and create beautiful images with the best results even up to a month after baby has arrived. The newborn stage is changing so much so quickly that it's nice to be able to capture the fleeting time.
Unlike overly posed positions you may see from other newborn photography styles theses images are highliting natural connections with mom and dad as well as simple and new moments between siblings. With a gentle wrap or just a cute pair of PJ's, baby will be happy while in your arms and guided through gentle and easy movements. All in efforts to keep newborn baby happy and comfortable. With the use of natural lighting and attention to detail we can create some beauty images all while using the space available. These kinds of photos are more candid and from my own personal view more meaningful. Natural moments of curiosity from an older brother or a little kiss from a sister. These moments are both real and worth documenting. They will bring more emotion in years to come then anything we can fake. Our hearts really know the difference.
In situations where toddlers are involved, in home newborn sessions will offer a bit more flexibility. When thinking about how things will go with an older sibling and worrying about bargaining with a two year old sometimes taking the more candid approach is more realistic. I have photoraphy many siblings and newborns both in studio and in home and I find there is no toddler that will succumb to, "you there tiny human, sit down, stay still and don't move while I take cute photos of you not picking the babies nose". Being in your own home during a newborn sessions means that brothers and sisters can feel more comfortable in their own space. There are ways to create images while interacting at home that can't be as easily adapted to studio sessions. Some children are more themselves in their own space and a little less shy or acting differently. This can help make things easier on some parents. Feddings are always easier at home and so along with any travel and feeding on the go, many find it's just an easier route for them.
