Natural Newborn Photography in Studio | San Elijo Hills

Newborn Photography In Studio With Family

Natural newborn photography at my in-home studio is one of my favorite photo experiences, especially when the whole family is involved! I absolutely adore this beautiful family and have been capturing their family since their oldest was a newborn. So much love is involved in welcoming your newest little bundle. Having family portraits done during your newborn session will create the most magical memories of the abundant love you all have for the new baby!

Tips For Bringing Older Siblings To Your Newborn Session

Your first baby – now a big sibling – is still adjusting to his or her role as “older brother/sister.” The best way to make sure they feel loved and still seen by mama is by including them in your portraits! They will be excited to bond with baby, and you can even talk this up as a special “big sibling” experience just for them since they’ve been promoted to older brother/sister. This sweet big brother was so incredibly sweet to his new baby brother during our session! He was giving his new baby brother hugs and kisses, and was beaming when his mama and dad held them both together on their laps.

Successfully Capturing Those Sweet Newborn Images

Feeding and nap times are important, and are something I work around when we are capturing your sweet baby. I also will have a soft swaddle for your new babe on hand, keep my studio warm and cozy, and have a noise machine running so that they can feel completely comforted during our session. It’s important to me to make sure my clients are totally pampered and taken care of as part of my luxurious portrait experience.

Maternity, Newborn, and Milestone Photography

Within the first two weeks of birth is when I typically schedule newborn portraits. At this age, your tiny love is easier to pose since they’re still very new to the world. If you know your due date, we can get it on the calendar so I can tentatively plan on when your newborn session will be! Message me for more details about scheduling your natural newborn session at my in-home studio.
