I absolutely adore in-home newborn lifestyle sessions. My awesome clients make being a Los Angeles newborn photographer so much fun!
And, I got to meet Millie. Who is adorable!!!
The in-home session experience
Part of why I love in-home newborn lifestyle sessions in West Hollywood, and other areas of Los Angeles, is everything is done in the comfort of your home. Which makes it for a fun and relaxing session for everyone. I have a a stress free prep guide I send off to my clients, and then you’re set. And, bonus – you don’t have to leave your house with a newborn!
When I get to a client’s house, I take a few minutes to walk around and check out the lighting conditions, so I can plan. Kevin was in awesome-dad mode and had the house spotless in preparation. Their house had gorgeous light, and the nursery was just so cute. We took one break when Millie got hungry, but I plan for this and always build enough time in my sessions so we can take any breaks your new baby needs.
What rooms will we be photographing in?
Traditionally, I like to photograph in the nursery, living room, and your master bedroom.
But, that isn’t a set rule, just more of a guideline.
Do you bring wraps, or should we use our own?
Millie loves being wrapped. And her mom had some beautiful wraps and headbands for her. I always bring several, just in case, but Kelsey had a classic grey one (love) and pretty purple one (love) all picked out and ready to go. They were perfect!
I always bring my selection to chose from, and let moms decide when I arrive. I’ve done some sessions where we only use my wraps, and several where we use one or two. But I bring them all, regardless – so you don’t have to stress.
How do in home Newborn Lifestyle Pictures work?
I will guide you, while letting you be you.
We’ll get a mixture of images that are you looking at the camera, as well as you looking at your newborn, and sweet moments in between. I also love getting pictures of your nursery, so you have those sweet detailed moments to remember.
Everyone (including me!) feels uncomfortable in front of a camera. So I’ll be direction you, along the way.
I bring my laptop, so if you need to take a break for feeding or changing, I can keep myself occupied 🙂
Below are some pictures of their session.
This family is simply beautiful.
Feel free to contact me if you want to chat. I’d love to be your West Hollywood newborn photographer. 🙂
